Right Thinking

Our Leader says, "Keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 210). It is evident that this advice, the very essence of practical Christianity, is given to those who are awakening to the demands of Truth, for through Christian Science we have come to know that man in God's image needs no such advice. Mrs. Eddy knew, and those who are trying to put her teachings into practice know, that in proportion as we keep our minds "filled with Truth and Love," in that proportion will sinful and inharmonious conditions be banished; and this improving thought-process is the only way of attaining unto the "perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ."

Jesus said to the disciples whom he sent out to establish the kingdom of God in human consciousness, "Behold, I give unto you power . . . over all the power of the enemy." This power is inseparable from right thinking, which is the Christian Scientist's ammunition of Truth and Love, and with it he holds his position against all the onslaughts of the enemy, no matter what the odds; for when thinking right he is with God, and "one on God's side is a majority."
