Error is a term used in Christian Science to define anything and everything that would deny the omnipresence of God’s infinite good.
Disease is error. Sin is error. Suffering is error. Death is error. In the Big Picture of Life eternal with Spirit, disease, sin, and suffering do not exist. They are temporal beliefs of the human mind that inevitably dissolve and disappear in an understanding of spiritual life.
The quicker we make nothing of error the better! The faster healing happens.
So, I had an aha moment a while back when I heard another person tell me in detail how they were trying to locate a disease in their body. They weren’t quite sure which organ was causing the pain or what part of the body to expect the suffering to show up in next, which was very frustrating for them. As I listened to their efforts to locate a disease in their body, I thought about God’s allness and how there is no location for disease—anywhere! The effort to locate a disease can only reinforce the belief that disease is real and thus increase suffering, which does not contribute to healing.
They were familiar with the teachings of Christian Science, so I reminded them that the sensation of disease was an error of mortal mind, and the quickest way to heal it is to make nothing of it. I pointed out how they were building a case for disease by looking for it in the body and designating a location for it. To help I said, “Error doesn’t have a location! So, let’s not give it one in you.”
They stopped talking. After a second or two of thought, they saw what I saw. They laughed with delight at their unscientific approach and decided that it was time to quit locating disease in their body, and instead, see its nothingness and be healed of it. We were on the road of progress now, and with good results to follow.
Error does not have a location. Don’t give it one in you.
Live in God’s allness and stay healthy and free.
