How to Win with Basic Truth

The way to correct errors or solve problems is with truth. Regardless of what trying circumstances we may face, no matter how tangled the threads seem to be, there are basic, clarifying, spiritual truths we can begin applying at once.

And an inevitably successful way of finding them is through the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and through her other writings. These books give us essential truths which assure that we win with Truth, and overcome error. No matter what the trouble is, it's rooted in the belief that there is an opposite to the one divine Mind. "The basic error is mortal mind," Science and Health, p. 405; Science and Health tells us.

The body, business, relationships, may seem to suffer from varied errors. Some aspects of a sickness may be fever, loss of appetite, aches. In the case of business, shortage of capital and of labor, and a depressed market, perhaps. While each of these elements can be dealt with specifically through Christian Science treatment, the result will be determined by the degree to which prayer relies on the basic truth of the omnipotence and goodness of Truth and Love, and the unreality of anything else.
