Christian Science seems to make its strongest appeal to those seeking help for physical difficulties, and yet Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, makes this definite statement in "Rudimental Divine Science" (pp. 2,3): "Healing physical sickness is the smallest part of Christian Science. It is only the bugle-call to thought and action, in the higher range of infinite goodness. The emphatic purpose of Christian Science is the healing of sin; and this task, sometimes, may be harder than the cure of disease; because, while mortals love to sin, they do not love to be sick."

My first healing in Christian Science was that of the liquor habit. I have also been healed of the cigarette habit of years' standing. Many wrong traits of character and disposition have been overcome, and others recognized as undesirable. Many phases of sin also have been overcome in my experience. These healings were not accomplished easily, for it took a number of years of study and struggle before I gained sufficient understanding to bring about the demonstration. Often the suggestion that it was useless to try any longer presented itself. Through the understanding that evil is not an entity, but merely a negation, having no basis, intelligence, or power through which to manifest its claims, I was finally freed.
