The No. 1 Problem
The danger of nuclear war is often declared to be the No. 1 problem of our planet. That the danger persists is due to the inability of the majority of mankind to grasp the fundamental issues involved. These issues are far more subtle than they appear on the surface, but they are comprehensible by those who understand the human mind and rightly appraise its experiences.
The thoughtful Christian naturally goes to the Bible for an analysis of human problems as well as for the solution of them. For the Bible explains and exposes evil and supplies the spiritual truths that annihilate it. But much of the Bible has not been understood even by those who revere it. Particularly is this true of the application of good as law in the destruction of evil. If this had been understood through the centuries of Christianity, honest students and adherents of the Bible would have dealt with evil scientifically as Christ Jesus did and would have destroyed it through the power of good which he demonstrated.
The danger of the extinction or partial extinction of the race by nuclear warfare is too vast and complicated to be coped with by merely human means. Christian Science holds the solution. It counters the immensity of the threat with the infinite truths that are developed throughout the Bible. These truths found perfect exemplification in the life of Christ Jesus, whose teachings were comprehensively cosmical. The Master met the threat of extermination with the spirit of Truth and the power of spiritual knowledge of the allness of God and the indestructibility of life derived from Love.
