Completing Our Demonstrations

From the October 1966 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Complete healing is the desideratum in Christian Science. We need to pray for the understanding and love that will enable us to prove the complete healing power of divine Mind. Such a thought as, "I feel better, but...," is not sufficient for the proof of Christ-healing. We need to do more. We must not be satisfied with a healing that is not complete.

In "Miscellaneous Writings," Mrs. Eddy states: "Nothing can be more conclusive than this: 'And these signs shall follow them that believe;...they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.' This declaration of our Master settles the question; else we are entertaining the startling inquiries, Are the Scriptures inspired? Are they true? Did Jesus mean what he said?"Mis., pp. 192, 193;

Everyone desires to heal or to be healed completely. How are we to equip ourselves for this great work? We need to know man's perfection as the image of God and demonstrate this fact. We need to keep in view the harmony of spiritual individuality. Then we shall be guided by Spirit, not by materiality. The Bible states, "As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."Rom. 8:14; Through our understanding of the allness of Spirit, we perceive the unreality of the negative and false beliefs which appear to masquerade as part of an individual, and we apply this understanding to prove the nothingness of error and its so-called activity.
