On One United Front


Something must be missing, when the whole world has the same problems of sin, sickness and death, and yet we see each other so differently and fight each other as enemies. We have been taught to see differences instead of seeing one brotherhood of man. Our answer has been here, it is from the Ten Commandments, which were summed up by Christ Jesus’ greatest two from Matthew 22:37-40:

“37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

Mankind’s greatest need is to awaken to the practice of these two commandments. They teach us about what our relationship to God and to each other must be. As stated in Science and Health, p 264:28-31: “When we learn the way in Christian Science and recognize man’s spiritual being, we shall behold and understand God’s creation, — all the glories of earth and heaven and man.”

Our view would be corrected, from the false concept of many minds, many peoples because of color, class, race, education, etc., to the correct view of one humanity in the likeness of God, on one strong united front.

In Science and Health, p. 467: 13-16 we read: “Having no other gods, turning to no other but the one perfect Mind to guide him, man is the likeness of God, pure and eternal, having that Mind which was also in Christ.”

All must claim the Mind of Christ, since only through this Mind can we think of ourselves and see each other correctly, as Christ Jesus did. He loved God, His Father, with all his heart, soul and mind, and loved man, his neighbor, by having only the spiritual perfect view of him.

Christian Science Hymn 266 partly reads:

“None who are truly born of God Can live in enmity.”

We should then ask ourselves: Are we not all born of God? Instead of fighting each other, we should be on a strong united front, defending humanity’s God-given love and freedom, and overcoming the evil triad of sin, sickness, and death.
