Beyond positive thinking

If you’ve read this issue of the Sentinel straight through, then you’ve just now read several verified accounts of Christian Science healing. Every week this magazine publishes compelling testimonies of the power of God to heal, written by regular everyday people from around the world. This shows that Christian Science healing is just as relevant, useful, and effective today as it was when Mary Baker Eddy discovered it well over 100 years ago and when Jesus practiced it in his healing ministry. 

This scientific method of healing is based on divine laws—laws of God that are always in operation. These laws include the law of divine Love, because God, Love, is always loving His entire universe. And the law of divine Life, because God, Life, gives eternal life to every one of us—every idea in creation. And the law of Truth, because God, Truth, reveals our true spiritual nature, which is always free, upright, and whole. 

When we understand these laws of God, we can apply them to our lives, and this application naturally results in healing. It’s important to understand that this method of healing is based on law because this healing can sometimes be misunderstood as mere positive thinking. This misinterpretation goes something like this: “Christian Science has some nice thoughts about God and each of us, but that’s all it is—just nice thoughts.”
