A Healing Revolution

On page 101 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mrs. Eddy writes: "Christian Science and the senses are at war. It is a revolutionary struggle." The evidence of the corporeal senses is incompatible with true Christianity as demonstrated by Christ Jesus. Then shall the evidence of the physical senses be denied or shall demonstrable Christianity be denied? The denial of Christianity is materialistic and increasingly retrogressive: the denial of physical sense evidence and its replacement by spiritual sense is harmonious and progressive. All revolutions recorded in the world's history include suffering and bloodshed, and the punishment of the just for the unjust. The revolution wrought in human consciousness by Christian Science is accompanied by the healing of mind and body, by liberation from sin, sickness, and discord.

Spiritual sense ever testifies to the holy things of God and man, to joy, harmony, eternal perfection, and to nothing else. Why, then, does many a mortal wait to turn to God until driven to this course by mental anguish, failure, or the extremity of physical suffering? Because he has been educated to believe that his health, his happiness, and his success in life are gained through materiality and are subordinate to its fluctuations. The adoption of such false views often results in the temporary loss of all these spiritual gifts of God.
