FALSE LAWS – Break the so-called laws which say you cannot heal, you cannot help the patient; the patient will relapse, etc.; work at it every day until they are destroyed; [do] not wait until you have it to meet with the patient, but work every day just as hard as though the patient were dying, until you have the mastery; then they will never have dominion over your work.  Look to God, whose only law is harmony.    Mary Baker Eddy

RULES FOR SEVERE ATTACKS

     Begin your argument with, “You are not frightened; there is nothing to fear; God is Love, and Love is all; there is nothing else.”  If this does not carry every point, it is because you are not in the Spirit sufficiently.

     Then cover strongly by denial any would-be law that your patient is not healed by Christian Science, and by arguing the allness of Love.

     If the belief continues, take up the special symptom present with stern denial, declaring against it.

     If this seems to aggravate the symptoms, take it up that the truth told of a lie cannot make one suffer and there is no law that can make it appear to, and your patient can neither be discouraged by absolute truth, nor frightened by the truth spoken relative to error.

     Also that we can help one another, for that is the law of God, and there is no hate or contrary law; no such law can be made, and your patient is not suffering from the truth you are declaring.  The law of good is supreme, it governs this case, and nothing else can.  Love reigns, and rules over all.

     Do not be afraid to rebuke the symptom that is present, if the general truth has not taken it away, and turn your thought entirely to breaking the claim that your argument can increase the suffering, or produce an aggravation of symptoms, or chemicalization.

     Always use this argument strongly, and every day, that she controls with Truth her own body and nobody can control it one particle with error.   Mary Baker Eddy    (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.43)
