Handling the "serpent"— the lie of evil

Christ Jesus gave his disciples power to heal sickness and overturn evil. The Bible records that the Apostle Paul, when shipwrecked on the island of Malta, had a viper fasten on his hand, but "he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm." Acts 28:5. In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes: "Understanding the control which Love held over all, Daniel felt safe in the lions' den, and Paul proved the viper to be harmless. All of God's creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible." Science and Health, p. 514.

Modern-day followers of the Master, Christ Jesus, have access to this same healing power. The writer was quickly freed of alarming effects from a snakebite by turning wholeheartedly to God in prayer.
