What Is the Power That Heals?

To those uninstructed in Christian Science the healing of physical disease by spiritual power may seem to be a matter of mystery and miracle, the supernatural act of an inscrutable God. But an understanding of Christian Science shows this healing to be the logical, natural, and effectual working of divine Principle, the Principle, or Spirit, which Christ Jesus recognized as God. and to which he attributed all-presence and power.

To understand spiritual healing as the natural operation of law, existence must be recognized as spiritually mental, and the struggle that seems to be going on to establish health must be seen to be in the materially mental realm of false concepts and their pseudo laws. The human mind seeks to establish and maintain these laws wholly apart from God's spiritual law of perfection. All sickness and disease, inharmony and discord, all that seems to need healing, stems from the false belief of a creation and selfhood existing as material substance apart from Spirit, God, the true source of existence. All evil is in the nature of supposition and seems to exist in the mythical realm of what is called matter, the realm of human belief.
