THE ELIMINATION OF FEAR

In reading the testimonies of healing published in the Sentinel and Journal, one becomes impressed with the large number of cases wherein the fears of the patient and of his friends are plainly disclosed to have been "the procuring cause and foundation" (Science and Health, p. 411) of the sickness from which the patient suffered. In such cases one is forcefully reminded of the passage of Scripture in which Job says, "For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me."

These testimonies, therefore, may be regarded as present-day proof that fear is not a condition to which one must be tamely submissive, but rather a condition against which he must strive, and from which he must seek earnestly to be emancipated. The necessity for this endeavor to overcome and cast out fear is emphasized by Mrs. Eddy on page 411 of Science and Health, where she writes, "Always begin your treatment by allaying the fear of patients. . . . If you succeed in wholly removing the fear, your patient is healed."
