Weapons of peace
In what can appear to be an increasingly violent world, people look for increasingly powerful weapons with which to defend themselves. To an alarming degree, individual citizens, including young people, arm themselves with handguns and high-powered rifles. And nations, large and small, invent and develop hideous weapons of mass destruction. Just recently The Christian Science Monitor reported: "Iraq has handed over documents to the UN detailing a sizable secret germ warfare program with a sophisticated delivery system" (August 23, 1995).
Man-made weapons, however, have never proved powerful enough to destroy the discordant human thoughts that lead to violence and to war; instead, their use has tended to reinforce and perpetuate such thoughts. So, we might ask ourselves the following questions, which Mary Baker Eddy posed for humanity's consideration in the Christian Science textbook: "Are material means the only refuge from fatal chances? Is there no divine permission to conquer discord of every kind with harmony, with Truth and Love?" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 394)
