Many times in my life I have gratefully borne witness to the truth of this statement in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. xi): "The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation."

Two years ago a small growth appeared on my left earlobe. There was no particular pain or distress, but fear of disfigurement crept in. I remembered Job, who expressed the fact that the thing he greatly feared had come upon him (see Job 3:25). I knew I must rid myself of any fear and turn wholeheartedly to God, who knows no fear and is the sole creator of all that is good. I realized the importance of healing my own thought, because, as Science and Health says (p. 411), "Disease is an image of thought externalized."

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
