Join the march of Mind

Even a cursory scan of world events shows the desperate need for an intelligence that can guide humanity to solid solutions. The suffering of people in what is essentially a civil war in Syria is one example that has defied easy solutions. Another is the needs of nations such as Turkey and Lebanon, to which thousands of refugees are fleeing. In parts of Africa, famine is being exacerbated by rising food prices that result from drought and investor speculation. In the West, economic issues offer the United States and the eurozone their own, inexplicable puzzles and dangers.

Focusing on material means and measures as a way to solve these problems has not and will not work. A higher path is needed—and there is one. Proven over the centuries, it’s a path that sets aside material conditions to see God’s creation as spiritual, undivided, perfect, and in balance. The Psalmist described God’s guidance on this path as being shepherded through dangers, even “the valley of the shadow of death” (Psalms 23:4). And this path is illuminated by Christ Jesus’ life and example.

To Jesus, God was not an abstract concept or a distant relative. He was (and is) a present power, an irresistible divine intelligence. Through Jesus’ work people were healed, regenerated, uplifted, and even brought back from death. His teachings and actions point toward solutions to health-care challenges, to lack of funds in government and in individual households.
