The solution to every problem begins with the recognition of the spiritual facts of being. In the light of these facts the negation of evil beliefs becomes a relatively simple action. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy says (p. 418): "Truth is affirmative, and confers harmony. All metaphysical logic is inspired by this simple rule of Truth, which governs all reality. By the truthful arguments you employ, and especially by the spirit of Truth and Love which you entertain, you will heal the sick."

For us to be successful, every effort in Science needs to be based on the truth governing the case. The truth in every situation is that there is one perfect God, Spirit, governing man in perfect harmony. Truth wipes out the lie that matter is real and that it has power to control man or to determine his length of days. Moses said of God (Deut. 32:4), "He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." Surely there are no mistakes in our great God, Truth! The purpose of all treatment should be to demonstrate Truth's integrity.
