Dominion over Blood Conditions

To some people blood is an awesome sight. Believing it to be a vital fluid essential to life, they associate the loss of blood with the loss of life. But Mrs. Eddy writes, "The pallid invalid, whom you declare to be wasting away with consumption of the blood, should be told that blood never gave life and can never take it away,—that Life is Spirit, and that there is more life and immortality in one good motive and act, than in all the blood which ever flowed through mortal veins and simulated a corporeal sense of life." Science and Health, p. 376;

Christian Science maintains that man is not a material being but is wholly spiritual. It denies that man in his real being is dependent for health on the circulation of blood. It teaches that every individual is the expression of God, divine Spirit—a whole and healthy spiritual being who is created and sustained by the universal creator, immortal Principle. In reality, the substance of every man, woman, and child is the reflection of the qualities of God, and this reflection is his eternal identity. His individuality and vitality are invariably intact and pure, composed of the ideas of Soul irrevocably compounded in the image of incorporeal Love.

Experience shows that in proportion as we intelligently grasp this scientific explanation of man's substance and being as wholly spiritual and perfect, we gain dominion over the fear of blood—and not only over the fear of it but over its conditions as well. The understanding of the spiritual truth of Life enables us to be healed of diseases connected with the blood and to heal others as Christ Jesus did. He revealed the spiritual truth that man is the son of God and that he is dependent on God alone for life and health, and he proved it.
