"What will you do about it?"

Mary Baker Eddy , the beloved Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science and the forever Leader of this great redemptive movement, many years ago gave to her followers the stirring thought challenge (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 177): "Never was there a more solemn and imperious call than God makes to us all right here, for fervent devotion and an absolute consecration to the greatest and holiest of all causes. The hour is come. The great battle of Armageddon is upon us." Then farther on she asks significantly. "'What will you do about it?"

The discerning student of this Science of Christianity knows that the battle of Armageddon is not confined to special periods or peoples. It is the age-old warfare in which righteousness ever crosses swords with the so-called forces of evil. It is the great purifying upheaval which inevitably follows when Michael and his angels, symbolizing the power of divine Truth, carry the battle to the cohorts of godless materialism. In our age, the advent of the spirit of Truth promised by the Master and revealed through Christian Science, has brought into the light for destruction errors of men and nations which have been hidden for centuries. The free, democratic way of life—yes. Christianity itself—is under an attack unparalleled in modern history for its boldness and viciousness. Yes, Armageddon is upon us; and, asks our Leader. "What will you do about it?"
