Unselfed Love Essential to Healing

Can we expect to heal diseases through the power of divine Love if we are unconcerned about the plight of others? If we are enjoying an abundance of food and profess to practice true love, consistency demands that we take cognizance of the millions of people in the world who do not have enough to eat. If we are enjoying our own freedom to speak what we think, to read on all sides of a question, to support and promote what we believe in, to look every man in the eye as his equal, a true sense of love demands that we not feel fully satisfied until every man, woman, and child on earth shares these freedoms.

Christian Science reveals God as Mind and man as Mind's idea. It explains that because Mind is infinite, man must be limitless. Whatever belongs to Mind is bestowed on its idea, and everyone is free to demonstrate the health, abundance, and freedom which belong to man. The method of demonstration is to acknowledge the truth of one's being, seeing in himself the perfect qualities of Mind. Then, because Mind actually is the only cause and man is the effect, and because disease, lack, and bondage of every nature are manifestations of belief in other minds and their material effects—false beliefs—the truths acknowledged act as law to destroy whatever is contrary to Truth.
