Light on World Affairs
In consonance with the period's growing demand that the world's people draw closer together, the United Nations and statesmen from many countries are working to establish a sound base for peace. Statesmanship and diplomacy are, however, experiencing such severe difficulties that it is evident that fundamental errors are active in human thought, resisting these efforts to promote better international relationships.
Christian Scientists, through spiritual alertness, can contribute effectively to the correcting of what is wrong in world affairs by utilizing their understanding of the absolute allness of God, divine Principle, and the consequent all-sufficiency of Love to heal any human ill or situation. Mary Baker Eddy, with her usual profound insight, shows us the way to bring light to world problems when she declares (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 504), "The rays of infinite Truth, when gathered into the focus of ideas, bring light instantaneously, whereas a thousand years of human doctrines, hypotheses, and vague conjectures emit no such effulgence."
This illumination from the ideas of Truth comes to us individually as we cultivate and develop our spiritual understanding through the consecrated study and demonstration of Christian Science. Diligence and continuity of effort are required and bring guidance for our thoughts and actions from the only possible source of intelligence—the divine Mind. Thus we become conscious of the spiritual facts of being which pierce through material conceptions and enlighten our journey from sense to Soul. Destined to extinguish and nullify the false evidence of a material creation, including the discord and strife among nations, these rays of Truth shine forth resplendently from perfect Spirit.
