"I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST"

WE sometimes hear it said by an individual who is asked to change his thought or his attitude in life, "I cannot do it." And when asked why he cannot make the change, he replies, "That is the way I am." He is convinced that because of conditions connected with his birth, environment, nationality, education, or age, he has grown into a certain mold and cannot change his mode of living.

Such an attitude is a form of mental slavery, which hinders the progress of individuals as well as of nations, and the Christian Scientist needs to be alert to this evil claim of aggressive mental suggestion. The statement, "That is the way I am," or, "I cannot change my mode of thinking and living," is often the equivalent of "I am satisfied with myself and my lot and don't want to change it."
