“A few immortal sentences, breathing the omnipotence of divine justice, have been potent to break despotic fetters and abolish the whipping-post and slave market; but oppression neither went down in blood, nor did the breath of freedom come from the cannon’s mouth. Love is the liberator.” (Science and Health, page 225)
Epic changes have been made throughout history because of a few inspired words and ideas. This quote references the emancipation that was made law, setting free the slaves in America after the Civil War. And it truly speaks to the impulse and power behind that law.
Divine justice. It is that higher and true sense of law, the Principle that has the power to undo and overturn the unjust. God’s Word is never one of punishment, fear, or evil. His supreme ideal is a power beyond measure. And it is ours to utilize.
What breaks despotism and tyranny is Truth. And that Truth isn’t anger and blame and subjugation and fear and bloodshed. It is Love. Love comes with power, because it isn’t just a nice sentiment. It is the Almighty.
Let’s recognize the great ability we have through God’s law to denounce and reject anything that enslaves us or anyone else. We can listen for those immortal sentences, the inspired words and actions that we can take, backed by God, and discover and live a life that is rightful, lawful, legitimate, impactful, and freeing!
