The law of good that overcomes violence

A Christian Science perspective.

As the demand for illegal drugs continues to provide a profitable market in the United States, drug-related violence jars both sides of the border. In Reynosa, Mexico, a gun battle swept through a day-care center. Fortunately, brave women slipped the children out of the building before bullets riddled the walls. No child was hurt. In Tucson, Ariz., home invasions are beginning to affect every neighborhood and economic level.

But there is a law of good that overcomes violence and the fear of violence. Christian Science explains this law of good as a divine law of safety that is available to everyone. The law of safety is the law of God, of good, which is supreme on earth. God protects each individual through the operation of divine law. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sent by God to demonstrate the power of divine law to protect human lives. When a mob threatened to stone Jesus, he was shielded by this law. He walked "though the midst of them and so passed by safely" (John 8:59, The Living Bible).

The same law that Jesus taught and demonstrated saves and protects people today. The Christ, or divine idea of God, is always present to help and heal. Christ communicates the law of good through intuition and inspiration, which some call God's angel messages.
