ARGUMENT – Study the Bible constantly, daily, and, dear one, pray.  Ask the divine Love every day to give you all that the Lord’s Prayer inculcates.  Go alone by yourself one half hour every morning and ask God, good, “Thy kingdom come,” ask to establish the reign of honesty, peace, and purity in your consciousness and to overthrow and cast out all that is unlike the Christ, Love.  Ask to forgive those that wrong you even as God forgives you, and see how this must be for you to reflect God.  Ask for deliverance from temptation, ask for patience, meekness, peace, and so may the grace of God be with you.   Mary Baker Eddy
(Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.76)

My work is in Mind – it comes from God – it cannot be intercepted nor diverted into other paths, being governed by divine Principle.  It is progressive, prosperous, satisfactory, joyous, continuous.  It reaches from pole to pole, from ocean to ocean, perfect, infinite, going on all the time, for the glory of God.  Perfect idea is already located, with absolute satisfaction in Mind.  In this perfect place in Mind, I am able to support myself, have all the recreation and companionship needed.  In the perfect place of Mind is complete satisfaction.  I live in the affluence of Spirit and am one with the inexhaustible, unobstructed, omnipresent source of income, and infinite as is the source, so infinite is the supply.  It is the Spirit that profiteth.  I am the ceaseless intake of God’s eternal giving. 

     You, false claim of malicious mind, whatever or wherever you are, you cannot mesmerize me, or hypnotize me to think I haven’t understanding to meet any claim that comes to me.   Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.80-81)

ARGUMENT – Sensuality has no power over you, for you are not conscious of the lusts of the flesh, but you are the pure conception of divine Truth and Love and co-eternal with your Father-Mother God.  Your every thought and action are love, goodness, tenderness, gentleness, beauty, holiness, joy and peace; that peace which passeth all human understanding.  In God we live, move, and have being; therefore we are in Life, health, strength, and forever.  To be conscious of this is to be in the presence of God – with the Father who is Life, Truth,  and Love.  Amen.  We are the children of the King; why should we mourn?   Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.80)

ARGUMENT – Belief is not reflection.  You are not weak or easily led astray.  You cannot desire to rule or lead others.  You are not rebellious or obstinate.  You have no human will.  God’s will is all and you are its reflection.  Therefore you will only do right, for you reflect and inherit divine wisdom and understanding.  You are spiritual and Spirit knows all things.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.80)

ARGUMENT – Children, you are a perfect thought of God, made in His image and likeness, surrounded by His love as by a strong fortress through which no evil can reach you.  God is your Mind, your Life, your strength, and you are governed by Truth and Love.  You have no material conception or birth, no father and mother in the flesh.  You were not born of the flesh (mortal mind) and you are not the reflection of beliefs.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.80)
