A Dematerialized Sense of God

Many societies are becoming increasingly secularized. Some people believe humanity has turned from God, Truth, to "other gods": political power, money, and so on. The worldly concerns of people frequently occupy their attention and energies much more than religious issues. Nevertheless, human beings are still faced with questions and dilemmas whose resolution must be essentially spiritual. People are perhaps more concerned than ever before with the meaning and purposes of a life that they haven't chosen to live but in which they seem inextricably involved.

Christian Science addresses itself to existential issues in a helpful, satisfying, and healing way, regardless of the level of society's secularization. People's sense of Deity, their belief in a Supreme Being, their admission or rejection of divine purpose and order, help set the texture and tone—for good or ill—of their community and country.
