"The rich in spirit"

One of the more striking characteristics of the twentieth century is the mighty struggle of mankind to adjust the social order so as to secure for themselves a greater sense of justice and a higher manifestation of equality. The Christian Scientist understands that this struggle is not accidental but rather the moral chemicalization of which Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health. Speaking of the conflicting forces of our time and the resulting disturbances, she says: "These disturbances will continue until the end of error, when all discord will be swallowed up in spiritual Truth. Mortal error will vanish in a moral chemicalization." Science and Health, p. 96;

Conscientious Christian Scientists keep alert to the conflicting forces around them. They do not ignore error lest they become victims of it. Rather, they seek to discern and define the specific nature of the errors which create the conflicting forces of which they are aware and then to replace those errors in their thinking with the specific aspects of eternal Truth which will gradually and finally annul them.
