SPIRITUAL IDEAS ARE ALWAYS MOBILIZED

The words mobilize and immobilize are much in the public thought today, and it is well that students of Christian Science give some consideration to these terms in their spiritual aspects, that they may be better prepared to affirm and realize the spiritual facts involved and the power to adjust and correct world problems inherent in the understanding and application of these facts.

In a literal sense to mobilize means to assemble and make ready resources for use and to put these resources into movement or circulation. Conversely, to immobilize would be to reverse the process, that is, to take out of circulation, to make inactive, to dissipate resources or at least make them ineffective. But, of course, in a spiritual sense such a reversal is impossible, and as Mary Baker Eddy so cogently states in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 245), "Impossibilities never occur." That there is in human belief a persistent effort to reverse the spiritual fact, however, no one can truly deny.
