Peace is the promise and reward of rightness. Gov‐24ernments have no right to engraft into civilization the burlesque of uncivil economics. War is in itself an evil, barbarous, devilish. Victory in error is defeat in Truth. 27War is not in the domain of good; war weakens power and must finally fall, pierced by its own sword.
The Principle of all power is God, and God is Love. 30Whatever brings into human thought or action an ele‐279279:1ment opposed to Love, is never requisite, never a neces‐sity, and is not sanctioned by the law of God, the law 3of Love. The Founder of Christianity said: “My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.”
6 Christian Science reinforces Christ’s sayings and doings. The Principle of Christian Science demonstrates peace. Christianity is the chain of scientific being reappearing in 9all ages, maintaining its obvious correspondence with the Scriptures and uniting all periods in the design of God. The First Commandment in the Hebrew Decalogue — 12“Thou shalt have no other gods before me” — obeyed, is sufficient to still all strife. God is the divine Mind. Hence the sequence: Had all peoples one Mind, peace 15would reign.
