From the September 1957 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The efficacy of Christian Science when applied to problems of human relationships demonstrates its divine origin. In the business world, methods of commerce and industry seem often to divide mortals into categories of capital and labor, management and union. On the other hand, Christian Science, as the law of God, compasses all differences with the revelation of the coexistence of all individualities in one infinite Mind, God.

Union in its highest meaning is the universal union of God and man, divine Principle and idea. True management, since God is infinite, must be God's absolute government of His perfect, spiritual universe, including man. Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 209), "Mind, supreme over all its formations and governing them all, is the central sun of its own systems of ideas, the life and light of all its own vast creation; and man is tributary to divine Mind."

This man who is tributary to divine Mind is the only real man, and the misconception of him as a mortal, moving in an orbit apart from the harmony of God's perfect government, is illusion. As humanity comprehends more fully the spiritual infinitude of God and the truth of man as God's idea, the illusion will dissolve, and the fictitious rivalries of material class and group will disappear.
