Protection in Wartime

For many persons, the present world war means readjustments, rearrangement, physical discomfort, and mental anguish. To others, actively engaged in hostilities, it presents in addition the possibility of danger, suffering, and death. Urgent, indeed, is the need of mankind for an understanding of Mary Baker Eddy's statement in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 340), "One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the Scripture, 'Love thy neighbor as thyself.'"

The maladjustment, inadequacy, and opposing interests which flare into strife and conflict can take place only in the dream of life in matter, never in the realm of Mind. Our exemption from these conditions is therefore proportionate to our rejection of the false concept of ourselves as material and our realization of our true identity in unity with God.
