I would like to share the following testimony as proof that the truths taught in Christian Science, as to the spiritual nature of God and man, bring wonderful healing results.

For many years I attempted unsuccessfully to correct an overeating and overweight problem through diet and exercise. Upon realizing that diet and exercise programs were not solving the problem, I decided that only through radical reliance on God would I find permanent healing. I called a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful help, and healing results were quick to follow.

We talked of a statement about humility in Miscellaneous Writings by Mrs. Eddy that reads (p. 1), "The mounting sense gathers fresh forms and strange fire from the ashes of dissolving self, and drops the world." A fresh form is what I had been desiring, but I had to learn that this fresh form could not be found in a more perfect physique, but rather in a more spiritually fit understanding of myself. I had been concentrating my efforts on my outward appearance rather than on my thinking, which is what really needed the attention.

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