Activities for the Armed Services
"In spite of my actions, I do not consider myself thoroughly bad." This observation was made by a serviceman who had been leading an immoral life for a long time. Having reached a point where the sordidness of his ways disturbed him, he turned for help to a Christian Science Minister for the Armed Services. Although he had known of Christian Science for several years, he had not practiced it.
The Minister explained to the serviceman that his humble desire to break with former associates and to free himself from the old ways was prayer and that God answers such prayers. Then he referred to the serviceman's statement that he was not thoroughly bad and pointed out that his true selfhood, the spiritual man of God's creating, was wholly good, had no material history, and was not shackled to the past.
As the Minister continued to pour these and similar truths into the serviceman's hungry consciousness, he helped him gain a better understanding of his true self as made by God. In proportion as his thinking improved, the serviceman surrendered more and more of the false, material sense of himself. Step by step he found his freedom.
