Mental Surgery

In "Rudimental Divine Science" (p. 9 ) our Leader says, "The spiritual power of a scientific, right thought, without a direct effort, an audible or even a mental argument, has oftentimes healed inveterate diseases." I am very happy to be able to testify to the truth of that remarkable statement, having been healed of cancer through Christian Science.

Some years ago I called on an eminent specialist to have a medical diagnosis. The examination showed that there was a very large growth, which had caused the affected organ to become almost twice its normal size. The physician did not express an opinion as to whether it was a malignant growth, but advised me to return to him in six weeks and go to a nursing home to be operated on. When I left his consulting room that afternoon, it was clear to me and had been before then, that humanly speaking the condition was a matter of life and death; but I had no fear, that having been overcome before I called for the diagnosis. What I had to decide there and then was whether I should undergo the operation for the sake of my family or trust to Christian Science treatment.
