Should We Go To War?

by MJSmith

Should the United States of America attack Syria because of a gas attack on innocent people?  Most of the citizens of the United States do not want to attack Syria because we are just tired of war since September 11, 2001.

     Some Americans feel that we need to stand up to the man in Syria and show him that he cannot use poison gas to kill people with.  But is this really going to help the world out if the United States gets involved over there?  Some people feel that it is a matter of pride if we do not attack, that the United States will come off looking weak in the eyes of non-Americans – the rest of the world!  So just exactly is the answer?
     The answer is simple.  The answer is one that most people have not even considered or taken into account.  The answer is prayer!  Not prayer along the lines of how most Christian’s pray, but prayer in the way that Christian Scientists are suppose to pray.  The following article is a great example of such prayer, the type needed in order to bring about world peace.  This testimony is from The Individual Christian Scientist pamphlet – Volume XXXI, from January 2007, published by Doris Grekel.

     My family and I had been living in Rwanda for many years.  Since the beginning of the civil war in 1990, a general insecurity reigned in the country.  Not a day passed without one hearing that so-and-so had been killed with his family.  Armed groups entered homes, raping the women and killing parents and children.  This testimony gives no idea of the widespread genocide that took place.
     One day, at 2 a.m. an armed group penetrated our home.  When I awoke to see what was happening, I found myself face to face with men in the corridor.  They were armed with guns and bayonets.  I was armed with Truth and Love.  As they showed me their weapons to frighten me, a thought came to me like lighting and destroyed the fear that was attempting to invade my thought.  Love and Life are indestructible and permanent.  I am the idea of Life, God, indivisible God, not two or more.  This Life, which is infinite[,] is the Life of these so-called murderers, of my family and myself.  This Life. being one, could not frighten itself, kill or assassinate itself.  I know that this truth covered the whole ground, neutralizing everything, leaving nothing[,] nothing but Love to act or react.  They raised their weapons but did not shoot.
     They forced me into the bedroom where the whole family had taken refuge, and forced us to lie on our beds.  As Judith, my eldest daughter, started to cry, their chief cried out, “Cut off her head!”  Without leaving a moment’s respite to this order emanating from mortal mind, I contradicted it mentally.  “You have no power to do that!” following Mrs. Eddy’s statement on page 151 of Science and Health, “The human mind has no power to kill or to cure, and it has no control over God’s man.”  I immediately identified the man thus, “You are the perfect child of divine Love.”
     I mentally declared, “Because love is all-power, human will has no strength nor power here, now.  There is no excitement or panic now.  The law of Love is present here, controlling the situation and governing all and everyone immediately.  It is thus.  It has to be thus!”  The man with the bayonet lowered his gun.  The girl stopped crying.  The men continued to appear very aggressive.  Still lying down, I pondered the fact that divine Love, being omnipresent, rivalry, antagonism, the lack of unity, has no basis and no presence.  Love is all the presence there is.  In the kingdom of Love all is harmony.  There is no fear, no aggression, no invasion, no menace.
     At that moment they turned toward me.  “Why not cut off the father’s head?”  As one of them lifted his bayonet to plant in my neck, I vigorously protested in thought and identified myself in the following manner.  “Can you cut (me) Spirit, God, your real permanent Life, the very source of your being?”  Mentally I gave the order, “Stop!”  He immediately stopped his gesture.
     Every instant of this trial was precious to me.  I did not allow myself the slightest mental distraction to view the problem from a material standpoint.  I constantly maintained my thought in the actual spiritual reality, listening to Mind unfold its ideas, which enabled me to work with absolute truths.  I was really convinced that what seemed to be happening on the human scene was of little importance.  It was happening solely on the level of my own consciousness, never outside.
     The books [the Bible and Science and Health] were of no use to me at that moment.  Only truths profoundly engraved in consciousness could help.  After about thirty minutes of this spiritual work, these men became very calm, as if they felt the love we reflected.  Their chief called them into the living room, so they left our bedroom.  This enabled me to affirm with still greater depth the absolute truths about the perfect man of God’s creation, and to deny all false claims contrary to Love.
     I reduced to nothingness the false mental pretensions called hate, envy, anger, rivalry, cruelty, vandalism, pride, criminality, hostility, human will, etc.  I realized that Love is the mentality of man, the only true consciousness.  Being omnipotent, all that is unlike Love is without power, without ability to act or to harm.  Divine consciousness is infinite and all, hence there could be nowhere in the universe any other consciousness capable of manifesting dispositions contrary to Love.  At this very moment the consciousness of each and every one was filled with Love to the exclusion of anything else.
     When they returned to our room, these men were totally transformed.  They had become new persons.  Their language had totally changed, and they had become friendly.  They started confessing to us crimes and murders they had committed.  They stayed with us for two hours.  No one was harmed.  We were all safe and sound.  Love had triumphed.
     But something else had happened.  A few neighbors who had seen the men enter our home in the middle of the night were expecting to discover by morning dead bodies they would have to bury.  They could not understand how our family had come through this experience sound and safe, and especially how we could stay so calm.  “What is this kind of prayer that could save this family from the hands of these heartless killers?” they asked.
     The following Sunday, our small living room where we held our Christian Science service was packed.

     When I first read this account, it immediately brought to thought how well it demonstrated the truth of the first reference below, which reference in turn brought to thought the second reference.

War[End of article.]

     Now let us take a closer look at the article and see why this man had the results that he did.

     My family and I had been living in Rwanda for many years.  Since the beginning of the civil war in 1990, a general insecurity reigned in the country.  Not a day passed without one hearing that so-and-so had been killed with his family.  Armed groups entered homes, raping the women and killing parents and children.  This testimony gives no idea of the widespread genocide that took place.
     One thing he says, “Not a day passed without one hearing that so-and-so had been killed with his family” tells us that the sense of hearing is being utilized.  Are we to believe everything we hear as being reality, especially if it is evil, something that God never created?  In the book of Job, Job was told about all his losses?  Yet Job never did go to investigate these things he heard, he just accepted the lies as being true.
     One day, at 2 a.m. an armed group penetrated our home.  When I awoke to see what was happening, I found myself face to face with men in the corridor.  They were armed with guns and bayonets.  I was armed with Truth and Love.  This gives us a clue right off as to why this man’s prayers were effective.  While the men were armed with material weapons of destruction the man of prayer is armed with Truth and Love, he is protected by God.  And Truth and Love being God is way more powerful than any material weapon.  As they showed me their weapons to frighten me, a thought came to me like lighting [an instantaneous thought came to me] and destroyed the fear that was attempting to invade my thought.  Love and Life are indestructible and permanent.  Love and Life, again being God, are indestructible and permanent.  The Bible tells us “Perfect Love casts out fear.”  I am the idea of Life, God, indivisible God, not two or more.  The next thought that came to this man is that, he is God’s idea, God’s Life, and this Life can never be separated from God, nor is there more than one man, one Mind, one Spirit, one Soul, one Principle, one Life, one Truth, or one Love. This Life, which is infinite[,] is the Life of these so-called murderers, of my family and myself.  This Life. being one, could not frighten itself, kill or assassinate itself.  Wow, are you getting this?  This man understood that “these so-called murderers” as well as his family and himself are of the one Life.  I feel that many people who do evil things do them because they do not understand their true identity; they do not accept their unity with God.  When the man identified everyone with the one Life he understood that this one Life could never attack itself or harm itself.  Do you as a Christian or of some other faith understand this very fact?  If you do not, you should be asking yourself why you have never been taught to think this way.  I know that this truth covered the whole ground, neutralizing everything, leaving nothing[,] nothing but Love to act or react.  I like to think that “this truth covered” or nullified “the whole ground” of Adam like thought.  They raised their weapons but did not shoot…  How could they kill when Love was present and they felt that Love?
     They forced me into the bedroom where the whole family had taken refuge, and forced us to lie on our beds.  As Judith, my eldest daughter, started to cry, their chief cried out, “Cut off her head!”  Without leaving a moment’s respite to this order emanating from mortal mind, I contradicted it mentally.  Notice, he understands perfectly well that the order comes from mortal mind not divine Mind.  He was listening to divine Mind and speaking what divine Mind directed him to say and know (even if it was all mentally silent).  Divine Mind dictates, “You have no power to do that!” following Mrs. Eddy’s statement on page 151 of Science and Health, “The human mind has no power to kill or to cure, and it has no control over God’s man.”  I immediately identified the man thus, “You are the perfect child of divine Love.”  Because he is able to identify the man aright the man becomes impotent to harm anyone.
     I mentally declared, “Because love is all-power, human will has no strength nor power here, now.  There is no excitement or panic now.  The law of Love is present here, controlling the situation and governing all and everyone immediately.  It is thus.  It has to be thus!”  The man with the bayonet lowered his gun.  The girl stopped crying.  Not only does Love make the man lower his weapon but it also makes the daughter feel God’s presence, enough that she stops crying.  The men continued to appear very aggressive.  Notice he “appears” only to be aggressive, however, this is not the Truth of it.  More prayer work is needed.  Still lying down, I pondered the fact that divine Love, being omnipresent [the only presence there ever is], rivalry, antagonism, the lack of unity, has no basis and no presence.  A lack of unity is a belief that we can be separated from God, that we are disconnected from Love, however, Love is all the presence there is.  In the kingdom of Love all is harmony.  There is no fear, no aggression, no invasion, no menace.
     Because Truth is correctly being stated by the father right  – At that moment they turned toward me.  Error turned toward him because error knew that he was the direct source that Truth was coming from right then and there.  “Why not cut off the father’s head?”  As one of them lifted his bayonet to plant in my neck, I vigorously protested in thought and identified myself in the following manner.  “Can you cut (me) Spirit, God, your real permanent Life, the very source of your being?”  This father identified himself with Spirit, with God.  Spirit, God, is the permanent source of Life of being.  Mentally I gave the order, “Stop!”  He immediately stopped his gesture.  The father was speaking with God’s authority and so man as God’s image and likeness has no choice but to obey!
     Every instant of this trial was precious to me.  I did not allow myself the slightest mental distraction to view the problem from a material standpoint.  He did not allow mortal mind entrance into his mental closet.  I constantly maintained my thought in the actual spiritual reality, listening to Mind unfold its ideas, which enabled me to work with absolute truths.  I was really convinced that what seemed to be happening on the human scene was of little importance.  It was happening solely on the level of my own consciousness, never outside.  And here is a key to prayer.  We must not believe that what is taking place is outside of our consciousness.  We must understand that all consciousness is Mind and Mind is omnipotent.  What seems to be going on with the five senses (what seems to be taking place outside of us), the human scene (as he put it), really is unimportant, and we must understand and accept this.  If we believe that something is outside of us then we lack control over that something.  The serpent from the Garden of Eden makes use of the five senses, this false sense about who we really are, in order to hide our true identity as God’s idea from us.
     The books [the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures] were of no use to me at that moment.  He means that he could not open up the books to read the Word of God.  However, it is because he has studied the two books that they really were of use to him at that moment, for they provided the following truths that were profoundly engraved within his consciousness.  Only truths profoundly engraved in consciousness could help.  After about thirty minutes of this spiritual work, these men became very calm, as if they felt the love we reflected.  Their chief called them into the living room, so they left our bedroom.  This enabled me to affirm with still greater depth the absolute truths about the perfect man of God’s creation, and to deny all false claims contrary to Love.  Love provides the calm that enables the father to proceed with his spiritual mental work by being left alone.  He continued to affirm the Truth and to deny error’s false claims.
     I reduced to nothingness the false mental pretensions [that which pretends to be real] called hate, envy, anger, rivalry, cruelty, vandalism, pride, criminality, hostility, human will, etc.  I realized that Love is the mentality of man, the only true consciousness.  Being omnipotent, all that is unlike Love is without power, without ability to act or to harm.  Divine consciousness is infinite and all, hence there could be nowhere in the universe any other consciousness capable of manifesting dispositions contrary to Love.  At this very moment the consciousness of each and every one was filled with Love to the exclusion of anything else.
     When they returned to our room, these men were totally transformed.  They had become new persons.  Their language had totally changed, and they had become friendly.  Love nullifies hate.  They started confessing to us crimes and murders they had committed.  They stayed with us for two hours.  No one was harmed.  We were all safe and sound.  Love had triumphed.
     But something else had happened.  A few neighbors who had seen the men enter our home in the middle of the night were expecting to discover by morning dead bodies they would have to bury.  They could not understand how our family had come through this experience sound and safe, and especially how we could stay so calm.  “What is this kind of prayer that could save this family from the hands of these heartless killers?” they asked.
     The following Sunday, our small living room where we held our Christian Science service was packed.

     Is not this how Christian Science draws all men unto Christ?  If Christian Science prayer has this kind of result because of one man and his family – over error of this type – then think about what a whole country like the United States of America could do if they really rallied together as “One nation under God”!  Yet recently an atheist in Boston (the town that means so much to Christian Scientists) wishes to have these specific words deleted from our pledge of allegiance. What do these words really mean?  They mean that the United States of America is one nation, even though it is mainly made up of fifty states, is under the protection of God – if and only if – we as a nation will obey and follow God.  And the best way to do that is by following Mary Baker Eddy as Leader of the world.  Let us learn our lesson today by reading the Bible and finding out what happened to Israel and Jerusalem when the Hebrews and Jews disobeyed God!  They lost everything, they were always taken into captivity, and in order to gain back their freedom they had to turn back to God and be obedient to God.

     Are you, as a Christian, willing to accept these facts – that hate and evil are impotent?  If we do then we have nothing to fear.  Are you willing to accept that God actually is All-in-all?  If mortal existence is a state of self-deception, as Mary Baker Eddy declares it to be, then should we really react rashly when we hear about deaths of thousands of people due to war, poison gas attacks, or concern ourselves with crazy men with guns by making stricter gun laws?  Is this not why Jesus told his followers not to worry about horrible things that will happen during the end times?  Is not it time that we, as a society, stop and begin to think about all of this, if it all is self-deception then how do we stop being deceived?  The only way to stop being self-deceived is by the knowing what really is – and that knowing (or Science) happens to be all about God and what God is!  If you continue to believe that you are a fallen Adam man, a sinner, then you are being self-deceived by your very own mortal existence of what you call Church and/or your religion.
     Are we, as viewers of the news, to believe the occurrences reported as reality when God does not work in this way?  It seems that society is so mesmerized by the five senses that it is willing to believe the lies that seem to go on “out there.”  Mortal minded men believe what it sees, what it hears, what it feels, what it smells, and what it tastes – yet what proof is there that any of it is real and not just a dream?  Does mankind go on believing the lies that the five senses are presenting as taking place within the material body as pain (evil) or pleasure (good), when neither pain or pleasure in matter is real at all.  This is nothing more than brainwashing.  Man seems to have fallen into the trap of accepting erroneous lies as reality.  Society tells us that evil is real, commercials broadcast lies about medicine and disease, doctors lie to their patients all the time even though they believe that they are speaking material truth.  But let us wake up and begin to realize that material truth is not spiritual reality or spiritual Truth.  Material truth is nothing more than error and lies.  Are you willing to accept this and believe what I am writing?  If not, I ask why not?  How has believing mortal truth (error and lies) helped you out with your imagined aches and pains and seeming needs?

The answer to attaining peace

     It seems as if today’s United States has fallen into the trap of becoming a socialistic, liberal, progressive nation.  Around the world there seems to be many MALE leaders; many of them are dictators.  However, there is only one Leader and that Leader is Mary Baker Eddy, a Woman God-crown.  How many of you will accept this fact and begin to understand that the only way to world wide peace is by recognizing Mary Baker Eddy as the Leader of generic man?  However, most of the world has either never heard of Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science or they think that Mary Baker Eddy was a horrible woman so they hate her.  Her own followers downplay her as their Leader because they have been fooled into believing that she is no better than anyone else.  And to be honest, I think they fear that mainstream Christianity will hate them because they follow a woman instead of the man called Jesus.  They have taken in many of the red dragon’s lies about Mary Baker Eddy.

What are the results in the world of this error?
     In Defense of Mary Baker Eddy and the Remnant of Her Seed Paul Smillie writes on pages 55-57:  Socialism is a rejection of individual excellence.  It pulls everything down and reduces it to the lowest common denominator.  When Christian Scientists accept the lie that Mrs. Eddy is no better than you or I, they are reinforcing all the claims of socialism in the world today.  Many Christian Scientists have a false concept of heaven that includes an oriental Nirvana for which we need not work in order to achieve.  They feel that “Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven” can be accomplished by finding the best practitioner possible—cradle to grave mental care without individual effort.
     [This sentence made me think about all the people on welfare today.  Is this not what welfare seems to offer people – a cradle to grave physical care without any individual effort to go out and find employment or a way to help themselves take care of themselves?  Is the welfare program actually reflecting Christian Scientists who depend on the practitioner for all their healing needs?  How do you think it would have worked out for the family in the above testimony if the father had said to the invading men, “Will you allow me to call my Christian Science practitioner before you begin to threaten me and my family?”]
     What system has entered the world since our Leader left us that denies individuality, identity and reward, operating as covetousness and stealing?  In the world, socialism destroys individual effort, goodness, and excellence.  Russia [was] referred to as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.  Our Leader said, “You are master of the bad tendencies of Socialism and not at all at their cruel mercies.” (DCC p.108, e.a.)  [Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary states that socialism leads to communism.]  If we allow mortal mind to proclaim that we are all the same, and allow Mrs. Eddy to become the focal point of this attack, the world suffers from an obscuration of individuality and identity.  This is [malicious animal magnetism] M.A.M.  Does it seem obvious to you that the attempted takeover of all mankind by this error is nothing but unhandled hatred for Mrs. Eddy?
     If we are all the same, then we have no individual identity with God and God does not know His idea.  This is atheistic mental communism within Christian Scientists.  Think of the despair this brings, the horrible depression, the pressure and tension, the loneliness and total separation from reality.  Christian Scientists must break the bonds of these Pharaohs “who today, as of yore, hold the children of Israel in bondage.” (S&H p.226:28-29)  They must break the bonds of these Herods who would be lords over God’s heritage.  The only ones who can stop the mental takeover of mankind are the Christian Scientists, and most seem not to care.  [I would rephrase this last sentence to say, “The only ones who can stop the mental takeover of mankind are those who understand Christian Science and demonstrate it.”]
     Mrs. Eddy said that violating the First Commandment and the Eighth Commandment, “Thou shalt not steal,” are the two most widely violated by Christian Scientists. (DCC p.183)  These violations are the basis of communism.  The reversal of the Science of the Christ brought that which the Communists call scientific dialectical materialism.  Communism claims to be a science and did not appear to the world’s view until after Mrs. Eddy passed on.  It kept trying to break forth while she was with us, but she kept [animal magnetism] A.M. in check.  Mrs. Eddy said to James Gilman that M.A.M. was attempting to burst forth all over our country.  She said, “I have been holding it back.”  Gilman did not understand a word she was saying then, but later he came to see just what she was speaking about.  The magnitude of Mrs. Eddy’s demonstration is evident when she says, “…if I were not here to still stand, the Catholics and Spiritualists would wipe every Christian Scientist out.” (DCC p.3)  And there aren’t many of us left, are there?
     Communism claims to have a perfect society where there are no accidents and all is well, with no mistakes.  Sound familiar?  It claims to want peace but of course recognizes no error.  It claims to be a system that is open to all mankind, but is actually run by an elitist element.  Communism is that which turns from an absolute moral authority and declares that it has the right to determine what is right and wrong.  It says you have all of your rights, but must not speak up to defend them.  Communism has its life in Christian Scientists who work to use Christian Science to build up pleasure in matter.  It is rank materialism.
     The misunderstanding of the nature of man and his relation to God in divine Science has produced the ignorant belief of internationalism [communism] that all nations and peoples are the same.  It is called one world government and is based in a false concept of brotherhood that says we are all at peace because we are all the same, without individuality or identity.  This ignorant belief of internationalism is one of the claims of socialistic communism.  Why, if all nations are the same, did Mrs. Eddy say, “…does God require the best government on earth [the United States of America] to disturb its peace by war to give Cuba her independence when other nations offer no help?  Foreign nations are allied, but the United States stands alone in her glory.”? (DCC p.188, letter to Pres. McKinley’s wife, e.a.)  [Editor’s note:  Today I ask President Obama’s wife, “Does God require the United States of America to disturb its peace by war to give Syria her independence when other nations offer no help?]  One world government results when Christian Scientists are unwilling to tackle evil and refuse to discriminate between right and wrong.  When Christian Scientists will not wage war against sin they become the recipients of every form of scholastic theology only in a more diabolical form than has ever been seen before.  They express these evils of scholastic theology in more mental forms, and the results are far more dangerous.  The claim of “moral equivalency,” that this nation and communist nations are basically much the same, is a lie.  [Editor’s note:  The claim of “religious equivalency,” that Christian Science churches and Christian churches are basically much the same, is also a lie.  This is why Christian Scientists must not allow themselves to be aligned with the National Council of Churches.]
     Our Leader said that by the end of this century [20th], Christendom would be classified as Christian Scientists in this nation and a few far off nations. (Pul. p. 22:9)  Are we all the same?  This lie says that mortal mind is not more virulent or less virulent in us than in others.  It says peace, peace when there is not peace.  It is apathy, pleasure seeking, slumber, and sleep.  All is well; God is Love.  All we want is peace; forget the evil.  We must get along with other mortal minds.  There is no need to uncover evil, and therefore no need to defend against evil.  We are all the same, with no borders [Is this why our borders are so easily crossed today?], no identity, and no individuality.  It is a colossal fraud being perpetrated upon the world because Christian Scientists do not want to stand for their Leader.  Christian Scientists then become the impediment that stops the revelation of Christian Science from reaching mankind.
     Christendom has not been classified as Christian Scientists in the United States of America or in a few far off nations and we are well out of the end of the twentieth century!  The Mother Church in Boston, or rather those in charge of the Church, are campaigning instead for the Christian Scientists to join with Christendom via the National Council of Churches.  This is the opposite of what Mary Baker Eddy was speaking about.  Around the world those who think of themselves as Christian Scientists must be asking themselves why Mary Baker Eddy’s prophecy has not taken place!  Could it be as simple as a….

…Conspiracy to slay the Leader?

     Paul Smillie writes, on pages 26-27, quotes written by Mary Baker Eddy:  “Christian Science is my only ideal; and the individual and his ideal can never be severed.  If either is misunderstood or maligned, it eclipses the other with the shadow cast by this error.” (Mis. p. 105:20, e.a.)  “The united plans of the evildoers is to cause the beginners either in lecturing or teaching or in our periodicals to keep Mrs. Eddy as she is (what God knows of her and revealed to Christ Jesus) out of sight; and to keep her as she is not (just another white haired old lady) constantly before the public.  This kills two birds with one stone.  It darkens the spiritual sense of students and misguides the public.  Why?  Because it misstates the idea of the divine Principle that you are trying to demonstrate and hides it from the sense of the people.” (DCC p.109, e.a.)  “For the world to understand me in my true light, and life, would do more for our Cause than aught else could.  This I learn from the fact that the enemy tries harder to hide these two things from the world than to win any other points.  Also Jesus’ life and character in their first appearing were treated in like manner and I regret to see that loyal students are not more awake to this great demand in their measures to meet the enemies tactics.” (Letter to Edward Kimball, 1893, e.a.)
     “The second appearing of Jesus is, unquestionably, the spiritual advent of the advancing idea of God, as in Christian Science.” (Ret. p.70:20, 3.a.)  “Keeping the truth of her character before the public will help the students, and do more than all else for the Cause.  Christianity in its purity was lost by defaming and killing its defenders.  Do not let this period repeat this mistake.  The truth in regard to your Leader heals the sick and saves the sinner.  The lie has just the opposite effect, and the evil one that leads all evil in this matter knows this more clearly than do the Christian Scientists in general.” (Coll. p.74, e.a.)  “When a student loses the true sense of me, and what I do, he is at the threshold of the plunge so many make into darkness, believing that darkness is a greater light.” (Coll. p.73, e.a.)

[End of excerpt.]

     Since December 3, 1910 the Boston elitists have fooled the Field into accepting the Board of Directors as being their Leader.  They falsely proclaimed that Mary Baker Eddy was dead, they buried [or they think they buried] a material body after keeping guard over it for 49 days (so that some Christian Scientist could not steal the body and proclaim that Mary Baker Eddy had resurrected – sounds familiar doesn’t it?), and they immediately sold the already printed up illegal 89th edition of the Church Manual, that had deleted Mary Baker Eddy as its Principle officer.  The elitist’s deceptions have continued for over 100 years, yet the Field allows these deceptions to go on and on and on!  WHY?
     After reading this post are you beginning to understand how socialism and communism have so easily infiltrated our Christian Churches and government offices?  Our senators and congressmen are supposed to serve THE PEOPLE not the banks or corporations?  Perhaps most Americans today want to be socialists?  It would not really surprise me any, but if we continue to go down this path of socialism (which always leads to communism) every single American will loose every freedom they have become accustomed to.  Look at how many freedoms we have already lost!  We are no longer free to fly on an airplane without being searched or questioned.  And this is done in the name of trying to protect us from evil terrorism.  However, if everyone in the world were real Christian Scientists there would be no terror to worry about.  Further more, the government could stop listening to our phone conversations and stop reading our e-mails because there would no longer be any terrorists to try and locate.
     I do not want to blame Christian Scientists for everything that seems to we wrong in our world, but who else is there to blame, when we are the ones that are suppose to be keeping crime in check?  We are supposed to be today’s representatives known as the children of Israel!  But we are laughed at by the world and called a cult.  Biblical Christians hate Christian Science and Mary Baker Eddy.  They call her a thief.  The biographies promoted by the Boston Church attack and malign Mary Baker Eddy!  No wonder the world has such a negative attitude about Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science (the Revelator and the Revelation).  Christian Scientists are thought of as being weird and stupid because they do not go to doctors or take medicine.  Why is this?  It is because Christian Scientists are supposed to stand with God.  We understand that there is no need for medicine or doctors because there is no sickness or disease or death.  But Christian Scientists must handle sin and we have not done this.  No wonder Christian Science practitioners are failing to heal the Field and the world.  No wonder that Christian Scientists are not getting their healings any more.  People have forgotten the hundreds that were healed by Mary Baker Eddy while attending her lectures.  People deny that Mary Baker Eddy even healed anyone at all!  Why?  If Jesus could do it then she could do it.  And if you deny that she ever healed anyone then you will never ever be able to heal anyone either!  Yet Gillian Gill’s book, promoted by Boston in the first decade of this century, does just that – she denies that Mary Baker Eddy ever healed anyone at all.  Robert Peel’s third biography is an outright attack on Mary Baker Eddy; but how many Christian Scientists really even understand this very fact or even see how the book has attacked not only Mary Baker Eddy but also Christian Science?
     I follow the works of  (excommunicated) John W. Doorly, Max Kappeler, W. Gordon Brown, John Morgan (etc.), yet none of these men really spoke up for Mary Baker Eddy as being the Leader of the Christian Science Cause or the Christian Science Church.  They did not admit that she is the second coming of Christ.  I love what these male Christian Scientists have done for Christian Science, however, you can practice Science all you want and study its matrix structures every day, but if you do not understand who Mary Baker Eddy is then you are lost in Science.
     It seems that Paul R. Smillie is the exception to the rule among the men who never knew Mary Baker Eddy in the physical world.  One man who did know Mary Baker Eddy in the physical world was Bliss Knapp.  Bliss Knapp’s book Destiny of The Mother Church is snubbed by Christian Scientists because he admits the Truth about Mary Baker Eddy!  It is like everyone that has dealings with the Boston Club is afraid to speak the Truth about Mary Baker Eddy for fear of being excommunicated from the material organization (Eden, the material body).  This is what Smillie means above when he writes, “Communism has its life in Christian Scientists who work to use Christian Science to build up pleasure in matter.  It is rank materialism.”
     Bliss Knapp understood all to well what was going on in Germany before World War II began.  He tried to get Boston to publish material that was most needed yet they dragged their tails (red drag-on) in getting the job done, so war broke out.  I am not saying that it was Boston that stalled in doing the work, but that error, the red dragon, was impeding the spiritual advancement of the work via animal magnetism.   Bliss Knapp’s book is ignored by the Church goers because they are afraid to read it, they are afraid it speaks lies about Christian Science and Mrs. Eddy (as they always call her), they are afraid to read God’s Truth!  Why are they afraid?  Because ecclesiastical despotism tells them if they read the book and accept what it says as being true then they will be excommunicated.  And that is what they are all really afraid of, being kicked out of a material organization.
     A practitioner literally told me, “If you join The Mother Church and become a member the healings you have will be quicker and better.”  What a line of malarkey she fed me!  Plus, that is no reason to join any church.  It is basically a bribe.  And it is sending the message that the Church is more powerful than God.  A man once told me that if I belonged to the Church that I could expect spiritual support, again, the same line of malarkey ecclesiastical despotism.  This line of thinking is Romanism – the belief that the Church is the Christ mediator, yet the Bible makes it clear that we are to have no other mediator but the Christ!  The Boston Church has fallen into line with Roman Catholicism.  Roman Catholicism has fallen into line (in many ways) with communism.  The Mother Church has also fallen into line (in many ways) with communism.  A once time editor of The Christian Science Monitor was an actual communist.  Something smells rotten in Boston and it ain’t the baked beans!
     To pretend that things are getting better in Boston is wishful thinking.  It is not getting better.  This does not mean that it cannot become or get better!  What will it take for it to get better?  Christian Scientists must begin to think for themselves via divine Mind instead of via personal sense of the Board of Directors.  Christian Scientists must begin to accept Mary Baker Eddy as their Forever Leader, as the Revered Leader, as the second coming of Christ, as the woman God-crown, as the angel with the little open book, as the feminine representative of God’s witness (Jesus is the masculine representative of God’s witness).  And then Christian Scientists can begin to think about the Board of Directors in the same way that the father thought about the murderers in the above testimony.

     So, to repeat what is also of importance in this article:

War     God never made an ecclesiastical Board of Directors, God knows it not, Christian Scientists therefore need not fear this Board of Directors in Boston which seems to govern via personal sense.  God never made personal sense, God knows it not, Christian Scientists therefore need not fear personal sense.

      After writing the above I saw an interview on FOX News Network.  The two Americans were interviewing the president of Syria.  They brought up the fact that before becoming president that he had been a medical doctor.  What about his doctor’s oath to do no harm?
     Well, the president said that sometimes, as a doctor, you had to do harm in order to save the patient.  What I expect he meant is something like if someone has a cancer lump you would harm the body with surgery in order to cut out that lump.  As president he sort of feels that he is cutting out the bad men (terrorists) in order to save his country.
     I understand this line of thinking; however, with Christian Science we do not need surgery or any type of cutting.  John Morgan tells of a woman who came to him with the physical claim of a tumor.  With Christian Science treatment the tumor slowly dissolved into nothing.  The tumor was not real, and these evil men, or cancerous beings, are not real either because God did not make them to be evil men, so we cannot fear these terrorists.
     As United States citizens we do have a choice.  We can decide to be “one nation under God” and actually turn to God for all our needs, for everything we need help with, or we can decide we want to delete the idea that we are “one nation under God” and experience inharmony for the rest of our lives.  Personally, I choose harmony with God, Principle, as our government.  Does America need big government?   Only if that big omnipotent, omniscience, omnipresent, omni-action government is Principle.
     So, should we go to war?  Only if that war is the spiritual war against the material flesh!
