One makes the healed know God; the other simply heals the physical. Faith healing is not really healing, or else the patient would be one with God. So do not think because you heal, you are a Christian Scientist; as medicine heals as regards the senses, and so does error. A Christian Scientist heals the moral as well as the physical.” Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Jr., GIlbert, 500 Watching Points, #323)
Oh! may you feel the touch of mother’s hand, of the spiritual idea, that is the light in your path. God gives you daily supplies, never ask for tomorrow. It is enough that love is ever-present help, and if you trust, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.51)
Do you find any difficulty in healing? If so, strive for the higher sense of the nothingness of matter, namely, the allness of God. Do not care to search into causation, for there is no cause or effect in matter. All is Mind, perfect and eternal. Whenever you treat a patient, include in your understanding of the case, that no ignorant or malicious mind can affect the case, then there is no relapse. Science tells us this in all it manifests.
Progress is the law of the infinite, and finite views are but the suppositions and beliefs. Now, realize this and be a law to every case. When you commence treating, know there is but one Mind, and this one governs your patient. There are no minds to interfere; error is not mind and has no power over you or your patient.
These are the rules for you to work out every hour of your life. Realize constantly that no malicious mind can affect you, or make you believe you cannot cure your patient. Begin this way. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.51)
A student went to Mrs. Eddy after having worked on a problem and asked her why she did not receive her results, why she had not had her work rewarded by demonstration. Mrs. Eddy replied, ‘You have done everything rightly, but you have failed to do one thing and that is to stick to it. Error has an end. Truth is eternal.’ Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.261)
Whosoever justifies an evil-doer, and does not expose his iniquity, is a partaker of his sin, and will have his reward. Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p,429)
The student is not yet where he can heal without the argument, or hold himself right. Malicious animal magnetism is at work to deprive loyal ones of this power, and mentally persuade them not to argue. Why? Because this truth-telling is a great neutralizer of its lies. Keep up your mental argument on the side of Truth more than ever before, and tell others to do this. Be watchful and every day ask Love to keep you from temptation and give you daily bread, grace to know and to do God’s work. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.50)
Do I approve to treating personally for malicious mesmerism the offending malpractitioner, even when the malpractitioner is attempting to kill some one, and Scientists know it? Shall they treat the offender personally? I answer, if they do treat thus, they prolong their own undertaking. The attitude of Christian Science is Omnipotence. Truth is given us for this purpose – to destroy error and make man free in the impersonal Christ. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Jr., Gilbert, 500 Watching Points, #325)
Fear must be eradicated. Use conviction, say 15 minutes three times a day. “I can never fear lack or poverty again because I know there is no such thing.” Mary Baker Eddy
