You Cannot Be Deprived

Freedom of speech, freedom of opportunity, equality of education, the right to self-determination, the right to basic food and sustenance, all these and many more human rights are demanded by our current activists. Freedom is a basic word. Peace is another. We learn in Christian Science that all human rights must have a spiritual or metaphysical base in order to be legitimate and demonstrable. In this Science we can find these spiritual originals and begin to establish them in consciousness, and hence in our experience and in our society.

Mary Baker Eddy says in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: "This is the doctrine of Christian Science: that divine Love cannot be deprived of its manifestation, or object; that joy cannot be turned into sorrow, for sorrow is not the master of joy; that good can never produce evil; that matter can never produce mind nor life result in death. The perfect man—governed by God, his perfect Principle—is sinless and eternal." Science and Health, p. 304; Justice is the nature of God's government.
