Spiritual Overcoming

"THE Christian Scientist has enlisted to lessen evil, disease, and death; and he will overcome them by understanding their nothingness and the allness of God, or good," Mrs. Eddy states in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 450). Spiritual understanding is, then, the basis of Christian Science treatment, whereby the claims of mortal mind are destroyed. The uplifting of thought to a clear understanding of God's allness is what is needed to destroy error of every sort; for in proportion as one realizes the omnipotence and omnipresence of God, no room is left in consciousness for anything but good. Since God is infinite divine Mind, or Spirit, His universe is altogether spiritual. And Mind must have countless ideas, good thoughts; for while God is Mind, He is also good. All good thoughts are healing thoughts, admitting of no evil; and they bless all mankind.

Good thoughts should be held unceasingly by those who understand God's omnipotence. Error could not be real unless God made it; but since God, good, could not create anything unlike Himself, He did not create evil. Evil cannot possibly have any part in infinite good; hence evil is unreal. Thus error vanishes under the dissolving influence of right thinking.
