Triumph over Error

THE whole world is seeking knowledge that will enable it to triumph over sin, sickness, and death. In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 307), this knowledge stands revealed, for all who will stop, heed, understand, and practice. There Mrs. Eddy tells us that "the divine Mind is the Soul of man, and gives man dominion over all things." Thus it is plainly stated that the divine Mind heals, and that it heals "all things." Lest there be doubt as to the procedure, our Leader also tells us, on pages 231 and 232, exactly what it is. She writes, "Man, governed by his Maker, having no other Mind,—planted on the Evangelist's statement that 'all things were made by Him [the Word of God]; and without Him was not anything made that was made,'—can triumph over sin, sickness, and death." The secret, then, is in "having no other Mind." It is divine Mind, the Mind of Christ, that heals; it is the Mind of Christ that wins the battle.

Now God is the only Mind, the only real Being, since He is Life, Truth, Love—the All-in-all. Being Life, God must be all the Life there is. There can, therefore, in reality be no imperfect life, no diseased life. Only God, good, really exists. Nothing is sustained except as God sustains it; and God sustains nothing but the perfect. The more we study Christian Science, the more we understand the great "scientific statement of being," which our Leader has given us on page 468 of Science and Health, a part of which reads: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." No truer statement has been made than that since Jesus spoke to men on earth.
