No soldier would fear the forefront of the battle if he knew that there encompassed him a presence and power which the shafts of danger could not penetrate. And yet there is such a presence and power; moreover, it is available to all who understandingly and unreservedly reach out for it, as many students of Christian Science have proved during these grim and hazardous times.

Christian Science teaches that in the measure of our realization of the allness of God, and of man's unity with the Father, in that measure do the menacing shadows of evil disappear from our path. The great fact of the omnipotence and omnipresence of God, faithfully adhered to, inevitably nullifies evil's claim to power or presence. On the other hand, leaving God out of our lives means relinquishing our hold upon a sure anchorage and placing ourselves under the false, shifting, so-called material laws with all their dangers and limitations, thereby becoming the victims of chance and circumstance, instead of their master.
