Gaining the Conviction That Heals

A STATEMENT of spiritual truth may in itself be helpful in overcoming difficulties, as Christian Scientists continually prove. It may assist in clearing one's own thought or that of others, and thus forward the healing of physical disease and other discordant conditions. But, as the beloved Leader of Christian Scientists, Mary Baker Eddy, clearly shows, it is not the statement of truth but acceptance of it that actually does the work. It is conviction of truth that brings healing.

Thus Mrs. Eddy writes on page 412 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "You may vary the arguments to meet the peculiar or general symptoms of the case you treat, but be thoroughly persuaded in your own mind concerning the truth which you think or speak, and you will be the victor." Again, on page 418 of the same work, she says: "Plead with an honest conviction of truth and a clear perception of the unchanging, unerring, and certain effect of divine Science. Then, if your fidelity is half equal to the truth of your plea, you will heal the sick."
