Good news and the Christ
Considering how a promising start has been made in the transition from white rule to majority rule in Rhodesia, how many formidable obstacles have been overcome to get food to Cambodia's hungry humanity, how India has made enormous strides in the ability to feed its own people, how American drivers have voluntarily reduced their consumption of gasoline, and how a black American woman, Karen Stevenson, who never doubted that she could do whatever she needed to do was awarded a Rhodes scholarship, might we not take courage and open our vision to the possibility of solving other global, national, and local problems?
Christ Jesus, when asked who could meet the requirements for entering the kingdom of God, said, "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." Matt. 19:26; Christian Science reveals God as not a person one approaches through a religious denomination, but the divine Principle of all being, immortal Love, eternal good. And the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, defines "Christ" as "the divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error." Science and Health, p. 583;
In every instance of truly good news where people have genuinely subordinated their personal sense of self to gain more constructive government, to feed hungry people, to conserve resources, or to overcome educational limitations, we can see this "divine manifestation of God" working. It is important to see the Christ acting on the broad sea of peace-producing attitudes among nations' peoples. And it is just as important, if we are to help bring about further triumphs of good, to see the Christ acting in instances of individual faith in good.
