TRUE SYMPTOMS

In a well-known and well-loved passage Mary Baker Eddy gives valuable admonition and counsel to her followers. She says (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 210), "Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them." And she assures us, "Good thoughts are an impervious armor; clad therewith you are completely shielded from the attacks of error of every sort."

As Christian Scientists we do not ignore error, but by following our Leader's advice and filling our minds with the truth concerning God, who is Life, Truth, and Love, and man in God's likeness, we destroy any belief in or fear of sin, disease, discord, or danger. If these have no place in our thinking they can have no part in our experience. Thus we learn in Christian Science the importance of watching our thoughts. Health, happiness, and security are the heritage of man; but it is essential to entertain only pure and holy thoughts if we would make this heritage evident in our experience.
