The Christian Scientist in the Armed Forces

The Christian Scientist who is now a member of the armed forces is continually confronted with many mesmeric arguments challenging the spiritual understanding which has unfolded through the study of Christian Science. Daily, hourly, he finds the specious argument of materiality, in many guises, clamoring for admittance into his consciousness. Perhaps the arguments of separation from loved ones, separation from his career, his business, his normal human contacts, which he has labored long to build, cry fiercely for attention.

These lying arguments of a power apart from God, good, seem all the more real because of the constant pressure that is brought upon him. Many times, for example, his fellow servicemen express dissatisfaction and a general state of negative thinking. In order to maintain the satisfying consciousness which the student has realized through his study and application of Christian Science, he must adhere to the correct standpoint.
