Disease unreal—preposterous?

The assurance that "disease is unreal" might seem preposterous. But to someone who has experienced physical healing by praying from the basis of the unreality of disease, this concept is comforting, healing.

It is so to me, because of the solid help I've had over the years through turning to God for health. One experience stands out clearly. For months I had been bothered with a large, painful wart on one arm. I had been praying, but the growth remained. And I wasn't the only one aware of the condition; my employer kindly asked me one day why I didn't do something about the wart. He meant, why didn't I have it surgically removed. I assured him that I was doing something about it. I was praying from the basis of the truths I was learning in Christian Science, truths that had brought me freedom many times before. Besides, I said to him, I felt a commitment to Christ Jesus' healing method, and I wanted to rely on God's power to deal with this permanently.
