Immortal Sense: Key to Healing

Disease is healed in Christian Science through prayer. This prayer affirms the facts and denies the lies concerning the individual who seems to be ill, as well as the circumstances of the illness. The facts are entirely spiritual and immortal, for the Life, the Soul, the Principle, of man's being is God, immortal Spirit. Material conditions are lies about anyone.

One of the primary conditions of material life, so called, is mortality. Everything that appears to live in matter appears also to die. We heal by denying effectively the material sense testimony which depicts a patient as a sick mortal and beholding instead Mind's spiritual idea. To do this it is essential to see the nothingness of the mortal sense of existence. The real man is immortal. Christ Jesus illustrated this man. And he declared, "Before Abraham was, I am." John 8:58;

The real man was never born and never dies. To say this glibly, when we do not actually behold the immortal idea of Life, is to mock immortal Truth. But to recognize our own seeming inability to behold the immortal idea and to take steps to overcome this seeming inability is to show our trust in Truth and to demonstrate it by degrees.
