Divine Mind—the source of our sinlessness and health

God establishes in His creation an intelligent moral stability that draws us only to what is good.

As a teenager I learned an important lesson in healing physical pain, and this lesson has stayed with me and deepened over the years. Following an injury to one of my eyes, a Christian Science nurse was called upon to bandage me.

Seeing that I was suffering, she shared this passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “Banish the belief that you can possibly entertain a single intruding pain which cannot be ruled out by the might of Mind, and in this way you can prevent the development of pain in the body. No law of God hinders this result. It is error to suffer for aught but your own sins. Christ, or Truth, will destroy all other supposed suffering, and real suffering for your own sins will cease in proportion as the sin ceases” (p. 391).
