Christian Science and Postwar Problems

Two of the beloved disciple's great precepts were that "God is love" and that "there is no fear in love" (I John 4:8, 18). In his eagerness for men to understand these truths, John explained that "perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment."

Christian Science is the demonstrable, healing law of Love. In accord with John's teaching, Christian Science declares that Love casts out everything that "hath torment," for evil, whatever its name, is alien to the nature of God. To men and women every where struggling to establish permanently in their experience the ideal security and the ideal peace, Christian Science has a special message. It is this: There is no problem too great or too small for right solution. There is no fear so strong that it cannot be overcome, no hate so powerful that it cannot be totally destroyed. There is no handicap which cannot be mastered, and no readjustment too big to be made.

The basis for these assertions lies in the spiritual fact that God is All-in-all, and that man is the expression of the ever-present Father-Mother, Love. Man's being is complete, joyous, and free; his activity is unthwarted and intact. Man as the idea of divine Mind cannot be maimed or crippled, for he lives not in matter, but in God. Man cannot be dominated or subject to tyranny, for his Mind is God. God's thoughts are known to him. Man is not the victim of material organization or the pawn of material government, nor has he lost four, five, six, or more years in war.
