SOME THOUGHTS ON ELECTIONS

In reply to the question "What are your politics?" Mary Baker Eddy made this statement (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 276): "I have none, in reality, other than to help support a righteous government: to love God supremely, and my neighbor as myself." These words are invaluable to students of Christian Science, for they immediately direct thought to the realm of reality.

The correct understanding of the unerring nature of God as divine Principle, which Christian Science demonstrates, enables us, in our Leader's words, "to help support a righteous government" and "to love God supremely." Her concluding words, "and my neighbor as myself," point to our individual responsibility of demonstrating the fact that all have one Father—God— and that therefore all reflect the same divine Principle, or Mind. Man unceasingly expresses only those qualities which are derived from God. Since dishonesty, prejudice, and hatred are unlike God, good, man, created in His likeness, cannot express them.
