The Irrevocable

The dictionary defines "irrevocable" as that which is "incapable of being revoked; unalterable." And this is what Mary Baker Eddy, its Discoverer and Founder, declares Christian Science to be. On page 12 of "Christian Science versus Pantheism" she writes, "Christian Science is irrevocable—unpierced by bold conjecture's sharp point, by bald philosophy, or by man's inventions."

No weight of intellectual reason, no mortal skill or brilliance, can alter eternal facts. And he who identifies himself with Christian Science, who knows himself to be, in the words of the writer to the Hebrews, "made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life," lays hold now of spiritual law, thus subordinating or annulling all hitherto conceded material law. He sees that he has the sanction, the authority, to claim for himself and for those who do God's will, in faithfulness and in devotion to duty, the truth which preserves and maintains at all times, even, if need be, in the face of violence and ruthlessness; even when confronted by those inventions of war the only purpose of which is to destroy.
