Christian Science treatment is safe and powerful because it is based on the Science of being—the truth that God, Love, is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient and that God and His creation are all that exist. There is no other creator or creation. This knowledge, utilized, heals mankind.
In establishing the difference between Christian Science and other mental methods of healing, one must first make clear the distinction between the human mind and the divine Mind. The human mind often includes many false beliefs—beliefs in materialism and mortal thought processes which include aggressive will power. Many people believe that the human mind is the only mind. One's defense against evil lies in his understanding that the only real Mind is God.
Mind unfolds restful, harmonious, effortless activity without strain, without willfulness, human suggestion, or any influence apart from Love. Mind, God, is Spirit. Mind includes all the infinite qualities of Spirit, such as peace, joy, intelligence, love, harmony, and so forth. These qualities are active forces, and man's reflection or expression of them reveals the nature of his individuality.
