The right standpoint supports radical reliance

From the October 1984 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What are we looking for in healing— simply the physical restoration of matter so that we can get on with our lives? Or do we recognize the fact that every malady—physical or otherwise—is really an alarm, signaling us to get out of the dream of life in matter? Radical reliance upon God, Spirit, for healing requires the right standpoint. Actually, our intent of healing in Christian Science is not to change matter (in fact, Christian Science refutes matter), but rather to verify the allness of Spirit, God.
