Adapting to New Thoughts of Healing

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Don’t get trapped

Trapped by their own inertia, healers fail to give serious attention to that which allows the thought to adapt to the challenges of world development.

From the book, 21st Century Science and Health, “You command the situation if you understand that temporal existence is a state of self-deception and not the truth of being. Fleshly mind is constantly producing on temporal body the results of false opinions; and it will continue to do so, until human error is deprived of its imaginary powers by Truth. Christ, Truth, sweeps away the gossamer web of temporal illusion. The most Christian state is one of integrity and spiritual understanding, and this is best adapted for healing the sick.

“Always begin your spiritual treatment by quieting the fear of patients. Silently reassure them as to their exemption from disease and danger. Watch the result of this simple rule of Mind-healing and you will find that it alleviates the symptoms of every disease. If you succeed in wholly removing the fear, your patient is healed. The great fact that God lovingly controls all, which naturally causes the self-punishment of anything that works against Life, Truth, and Love, is your standpoint from which to advance and destroy the human fear of sickness. Mentally and silently plead the case scientifically for Truth. You may adapt the reasoning to meet the peculiar or general symptoms of the case you treat, but be thoroughly persuaded in your own mind concerning the truth which you think or speak, and you will be the winner.”

The questionable big bang
Bible scholars recognize two distinct accounts of creation in Genesis. In the first chapter of Genesis through chapter 2:3, God renders the common noun, Elohim. As for the second account, the beginning of human history, God renders Yahweh in the Hebrew. For right reasoning, the two accounts ca

Investigating positive thinking
Positive thinking has its benefits, but it also holds a strong suggestion that people can be responsible for their fortunes, or misfortunes. If the status-quo of positive thinking people isn’t challenged, broader social problems can be marginalized and blaming fingers can point where they shouldn
