ESTABLISHING THE CORRECT VIEW

Christian Science teaches us to reason along the positive, affirmative line of spiritual facts. As we grow in our understanding of these facts through practice and demonstration, we find that our work of realizing the truth regarding God and man is more spontaneous and more effective when we do not unduly prolong the denial of error but hasten to affirm the eternal truths of spiritual being.

Mary Baker Eddy tells us how we may discern the spiritual fact which will heal every situation. She says in her book "Miscellaneous Writings" (pp. 60, 61), "Every material belief hints the existence of spiritual reality; and if mortals are instructed in spiritual things, it will be seen that material belief, in all its manifestations, reversed, will be found the type and representative of verities priceless, eternal, and just at hand." For best results in demonstration, then, we need to dwell not upon the manifestations of material belief, but upon the spiritual "verities priceless, eternal, and just at hand" which appear when we reverse the discordant evidence of the material senses. Further useful instruction regarding the reversal of error is given by Mrs. Eddy on pages 120 and 129 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," under the marginal headings "Reversal of testimony" and "Truth by inversion."
