A number of years ago my husband and I had the privilege of class instruction in Christian Science. Our teacher taught us to be persistent in adhering, to divine Truth—to stay with God and not with the problem. We were also taught that there is no incurable disease, because disease is mental in nature and there is no incurable thought.

I wear glasses. About three years ago an optometrist told me that the cornea of one of my eyes had a film on the front and a cataract forming. He said the film could probably be controlled by medication (no mention of a cure), but that surgery would be necessary for the cataract. While this diagnosis was being voiced, I silently denied the existence of a condition that could negate the spiritual fact of my coexistence with God, good. I had no desire to go the medical route; I knew that Christian Science heals completely and permanently.
