On one occasion, when I was ten years old, an earache made me delirious. At the time, I kept thinking of some of the things I'd learned in the Christian Science Sunday School. They reminded me that all is well despite appearances to the contrary and that there is no inside or outside to God's universe. Soon the delirium and earache were gone, and warts that had been on my hands for some years disappeared, too. My mother later told me that a Christian Science practitioner had been called to pray in my behalf. This was the first healing in Christian Science I can remember.

Disease is always an effect of a circumscribed knowledge of God. The action of the Christ, lifting thought to a more scientific basis, replaces these mortal misconceptions with spiritual perception. And once these false beliefs are corrected, disease is necessarily erased from the body.
