Maintaining Our Manhood

Despite an increase in world population of both men and women, some institutions that humanity counts on for moral and spiritual progress are too often finding active male participation on the decline.

We might wonder if the world is losing sight of true manhood. Such a possibility cannot be taken lightly. Mrs. Eddy writes, "The male element is a strong supporting arm to religion as well as to politics, and we need in our ranks of divine energy, the strong, the faithful, the untiring spiritual armament." The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 355;

As in every area where there seems to be a lack of some rightful thing, the real need is wholly mental and always requires a spiritual solution. It may seem there is either a shortage of spiritual vision among men or that not enough of those who have this vision are accepting the responsibility of uplifting and spiritualizing human lives. In either case the real need is for a better understanding of the present perfection and completeness of God's creation.
