Anger overcome

This was adapted from a testimony originally written in Spanish and published in the March 2013 editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

I was really trying to know the Christ. I had been reading in the Christian Science Bible Lessons, The Herald of Christian Science, and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy quite a lot about the perfect man, created in the image and likeness of God, though I was having a hard time understanding this concept. I felt closer to the Christ when I read the Bible or Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, but whenever I would face my own mental entanglements, I could not grasp the healing presence of the Christ.

One Sunday after a church service at a Christian Science branch church, a good friend suggested that I look even further into the meaning of the Christ, which I did. And I was surprised by all the things I discovered. One of the instances I read in the Bible was Jesus asking his disciples who he (Jesus) was. Peter replied, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16). Mrs. Eddy explains: “That is: The Messiah is what thou hast declared,—Christ, the spirit of God, of Truth, Life, and Love, which heals mentally” (Science and Health, p. 137).
