Overcoming Fear

Fear originates in the contention that evil, matter, and its so-called laws are real, powerful, and irresistible; that they are self-acting, self-existent, and entirely independent of God, good—out of His jurisdiction.

Christian Science bases its reasoning on the foundation on which Christ Jesus built, the all-power and all-presence of God, good. If God, good, is the only power, evil has no power, no ability to resist His divine will or set it aside.

The manifestation of fear has been analyzed by many clear-thinking persons in all walks of life. Recently, some advanced and well-known medical doctors have proved by research and observation that certain diseases of the body have resulted from fear and other human emotions. Of course, these doctors have advised against fear; but such advice is of little use unless the method which Christ Jesus employed in warring against this enemy is understood.
