From the July 1960 issue of The Christian Science Journal

To understand the power of spiritual thought, and to apply that understanding to the mental constraints of daily living, is a controlling force in the freedom and destiny of men and nations.

The knowledge of true mental power and its operations must become an open book to us, in the home and community, in the fields of commerce, law, research, agriculture, and the professions. Only as we understand this power of right thought are our mental and spiritual freedoms safe from the inroads of false mental power, and our progress and the advances of the age secure from tyranny.

Christian Science has come to reveal the freedom and spiritual power inherent in God, divine Mind. It exposes, and thus enables mankind to banish, the lawlessness, the mental trickeries, manipulations, and devices of every form of materialism that claims to be able to wield power over the individual and the mass through mental control. Scientific understanding of Mind-power is fundamental to a living freedom. In this branch of enlightenment, Christian Science is as liberating as in the branch of physical healing.
