5/2/99 How To Reject a Lie-Take a Stand

How to reject a lie

We must take a stand for Truth. "We sustain Truth, not by accepting, but by rejecting a lie." S&H 357:5 This quote, which I misquoted in our notes last week is instructional in how we view the headlines...and not just the headlines from Kosovo or Littleton but the headlines that our bodies put before us.

We must be aggressive in our arguments; our denials of error. "Step on it's head" as the practitioner once told me. Cut it off!

I Sam 17:50,51

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

S&H 234:25-27

Sin and disease must be thought before they can be manifested. You must control evil thoughts in the first instance, or they will control you in the second.

It is okay to identify the problem you are dealing with, just don't make a reality out of it. it has no power to harm you. Love comes to the rescue of the human condition every time. Turn to the arms of Love. Talk the problem up to talk it down.

S&H 412:18

To heal by argument, find the type of the ailment, get its name, and array your mental plea against the physical. Argue at first mentally, not audibly, that the patient has no disease, and conform the argument so as to destroy the evidence of disease. Mentally insist that harmony is the fact, and that sickness is a temporal dream. Realize the presence of health and the fact of harmonious being, until the body corresponds with the normal conditions of health and harmony.

Do we believe that man is saved?

S&H 497:13

4. We acknowledge Jesus' atonement as the evidence of divine, efficacious Love, unfolding man's unity with God through Christ Jesus the Way-shower; and we acknowledge that man is saved through Christ, through Truth, Life, and Love as demonstrated by the Galilean Prophet in healing the sick and overcoming sin and death.

Remember to memorize these two quotes from Science and Health. Make them your friends:

S&H 495:14-20

When the illusion of sickness or sin tempts you, cling steadfastly to God and His idea. Allow nothing but His likeness to abide in your thought. Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your clear sense and calm trust, that the recognition of life harmonious--as Life eternally is--can destroy any painful sense of, or belief in, that which Life is not.

S&H 393:10 Take

Take possession of your body, and govern its feeling and action. Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good. God has made man capable of this, and nothing can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on man.
