You don't need to suffer

"If God loves me, as you say He does, why is He making me suffer so? What have I done to make Him punish me this way?" These questions were put to a Christian Science practitioner by one who was lying on a bed of pain, seeking help for the first time through Christian Science treatment. The practitioner, with compassion, said quietly, "God is Love. He doesn't know anything about suffering. You are suffering from false belief."

To one lacking the understanding that God and His ideas alone are real, such a statement may seem ludicrous. But to someone turning to Christian Science for healing, just this glimpse of the magnitude of God's love for His idea, man, can be enough to set him free.
