LOOSENING THE BARNACLES OF MORTAL MIND

Rejoicing in the protecting care and goodness of God, the Psalmist sang (Ps. 145:18-20): "The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. ... The Lord preserveth all them that love him." Nothing unlike God, good, can stand before this mighty truth which comforted the Psalmist and is exemplified by Christian Science.

The following comparison may be helpful in showing the unreality and powerlessness of mortal mind beliefs. Those acquainted with seagoing ships know that little shellfish called barnacles attach themselves to the bottom and sides of the vessels. These unwelcome sea creatures retard the forward motion of the ships through the water and occasionally do damage to the hulls. Now it is a fact that when a ship covered with barnacles enters the fresh water areas of the globe, such as the Great Lakes on the North American continent, and remains in the fresh water for a certain time, the barnacles fall off.
