Victory and Surrender

"God requires perfection," writes Mary Baker Eddy, "but not until the battle between Spirit and flesh is fought and the victory won" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 254). This means that everyone awake to the spiritual fact of being is enlisted in a holy war. We need not be surprised or disconcerted to discover this. In God and His creation there are no conflicts, all is harmony, peace, and loveliness. Man, since he reflects his Maker, knows nothing else.

In the human consciousness, with its belief in good and evil, there are battles to be fought before we can fully possess our spiritual heritage; there are tribes of wrong thoughts to be put out before we can be established in the "land that floweth with milk and honey."

"Where dwellest thou?"
