Immunity to the coronavirus

March 31, 2020 | 40 comments

The medical community believes that a vaccine is necessary for protection from the coronavirus. There is an effective remedy already at hand that protects one from exposure to the virus. Spiritual consciousness. A consciousness of the omnipotence of God creates immunity to viruses and protects one from catching a disease.

Mary Baker Eddy explains how to create this immunity in these words:

“Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them. It is plain that nothing can be added to the mind already full. There is no door through which evil can enter, and no space for evil to fill in a mind filled with goodness. Good thoughts are an impervious armor; clad therewith you are completely shielded from the attacks of error of every sort. And not only yourselves are safe, but all whom your thoughts rest upon are thereby benefited” (Miscellany, p. 210).

Spiritual consciousness keeps disease out of thought and out of experience. It’s your ultimate immunity to the coronavirus.

  1. Thank you so much Evan, after being at work all day and having so many people so scared it was so good to find this. I needed to read in strong language the beliefs I have been trying to hold on to. As I share them with non Christian Scientists they seemed watered down and weak. Your statement is bold and strong and I appreciate it.

  2. Hymn p.154

    “In Thee I have no pain or sorrow,
    No anxious thought, no load of care,
    Thou art the same today, tomorrow;
    Thy love and truth are everywhere. “

  3. I love that whole hymn154 and. have used different verses at different times. Within thy love is safe abiding from every thought that giveth fear, within thy truth a perfect chiding should I forget that thou art near.Gives me a sense of being safe where ever I am.

    Thank you.

  4. Mrs. Eddy advises us in Science & health to “realize the presence of health, and the fact of harmonious being”………

    I looked up the word “realize” and it says: -‘ to become fully aware of something as a fact.’
    – and I also looked up ‘fact’ and this says; ‘ the truth about events as opposed to interpretation.’

    So if we accept and become fully aware of the spiritual facts or interpretation of the Scriptures, the material interpretation of the Scriptures that accepts and sees this virus as a reality, maybe as sent by God for some reason, must shrivel away. It will destroy itself as long as we keep our minds absolutely filled with Truth and Love, because this virus is not what God is causing, and therefore it is not a cause or an effect, and has no power over us. So we will be safe, and every one on whom our thoughts rest will also be benefited.

  5. Someone lifted from Joshua 1:9 a concept of COVID-19 an acronym:
    Christ Over Viruses and Infectous Diseases
    See if you agree!

    1. Yes I like putting Christ over these claims and it is the Principle function of the Law of Christ casting out sin, disease and death that is acting now to protect our being that we reflect health, Truth, Life and Love as we are manifested for.

  6. “In atmosphere of Love divine, we live and move and breathe.”
    Hymn 144, Christian Science Hymnal

    No face mask needed.

    1. I exchange the word Love for Life, Truth, Principle, Mind , Soul or Spirit. Today, I am praying
      “In atmosphere of TRUTH divine, we live and move and breathe.”

  7. The CS Bible Lesson this week has tools that blasts this lie of evil right out of the water. In that beautiful statement you share, Evan, and in all the statements about evil in the Lesson, we can insert this specific name of the disease for the word evil, and really aim true. I read once, when a sufferer was tempted to get a diagnosis of her condition, find its name, she realized she already had the name, “Nothingness.” The name of any disease, whatever its alias, is always Nothingness. Here’s and example from the second section:

    “[Nothingness, alias CV,] is a negation, because it is the absence of truth. [CV] is nothing, because it is the absence of something [divine Love permeating every square atom of space, Spirit constituting all substance]. [CV] is unreal, because it presupposes the absence of God [Mind], the omnipotent and omnipresent.
    “Every mortal must learn that there is neither power nor reality in [CV, in any belief in the contagion of Nothingness]. The only power of [CV] is to destroy itself. It can never destroy one iota of good.”

    And THEN, like Jehoshaphat, we celebrate the joyous allness of what IS, forever has been and will be here: GOOD! –The Truth and Love of health, harmony, God’s tender care.

    1. Diane, Great idea, substituting the supposed disease in place of evil. Really zoom in and wipe it out! Take the rug out from under it, or as you put it “blast it right out of the water”, and so be seen as nothingness in the face of the omnipotence of God’s Allness. Thanks and thank you to Evan. The quote you shared from Miscellany p. 210 is invaluable for our defense and the defense of “all whom (our)thoughts rest upon…” <3

    1. Evan your quote from MBE’s prose work is the answer I can use. An “impervious armor” says it all. God is All-in-all That is enough! Thank you & fellow readers.

  8. Applying the very same Truth’s from this weeks lesson on Unreality.
    194:8 “When one’s false belief is corrected, Truth sends a report of health over the body”

    Hymn 264, St. Gertrude, “Onward Christian Soldiers”
    Sabine Baring Gould. (1834 – 1924) Published the words in The Church Times, London 1865.
    He was an English clergyman and writer, whose Lives of Saints fill fifteen volumes.

    According to this weeks lesson King Jehoshaphat designated singers, while God fought his battle against the Ammonites. And his reign was quiet.

    “Onward Christian Soldiers” “All one body we” fits this weeks lesson. We shall sing out hymns of gratitude while watching God win this battle.

    Thank you for your precious forwarding of healing understanding in SpiritView.

    1. That is beautiful! Thank you, Evan, and all these replies. This week’s Bible Lesson is on target! We can sing: “Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever.”

  9. “all whom your thoughts rest upon are thereby benefited” (Miscellany, p. 210) is what I hold onto knowing my prayers are effective whether or not I see the evidence.

  10. If all of us said the quote you shared each day, Evan, we would be able to share the peace we are all looking for on a daily basis, too.
    C – CHRIST
    O – OVER
    V- VIRUSES and

  11. Thank you Evan for healing truth quoted by Mary Baker Eddy and all the Truth declared by all who wtote

  12. “Amen” to you, Evan, and to all of you who have shared wonderful healing inspiration!
    With love and gratitude,

  13. Thank you Evan for this perfect reminder!
    We must not only understand…we must demonstrate these truths daily. A thought came to me today. I wanted to share a simple truth people could understand..All people,.all religions, all seekers of truth.
    “Do not stand in fear.. God is here! ”

    I love all our healing Hymns.
    Today I worked with Hymn 148 verse 1.
    In heavenly Love abiding,
    No change my heart shall fear;
    And safe is such confiding,
    For nothing changes here.
    The storm( virus) may roar without me,
    My heart may low be laid;
    But God is round about me,
    And can I be dismayed?..

  14. Continuing the quotation from this week’s lesson that Maggie started: “Realize the presence of health and the fact of harmonious being until the body corresponds with the normal conditions of health and harmony.” ( S & H , p. 412) We can expand the idea of body to mean a collective group, like the church body, or the body politic. I used that idea in praying for the body meaning all mankind.
    Just keep coming back to the fundamental truth in “What Our Leader Says” quoted by Evan, and its coordination with what Mrs. Eddy writes elsewhere that realizing the omnipotence of Truth will stop a contagion. (not an exact quote).

  15. In many places it has been mandated that citizens wear masks and gloves if they must go out in public.
    Is it not the loving thing to do in the midst of all the fear so many people have, to wear personal protective gear?
    Also, the story of Jesus being tempted by Satan: “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” Matt 4:5

    I wonder if it is not “tempting the Lord thy God” by going out into the world without the recommended/required protective gear. We, of course, know our true protection is our spiritual consciousness. I, for one, rely on CS as much as my consciousness allows, and yet have had a serious health issue arise, seemingly out of the blue. I was the healthiest person I knew among my friends and family, so it was a shock. I had thought my spiritual consciousness was an impervious armor. I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Thank you.

    1. Your spiritual consciousness is always blessing you and bringing you protection. The world often throws new challenges at us as we move down the path of progress, but as you stay with your understanding of the omnipotence of God, you will meet each of those challenges as they pop up! Have no fear of them. Truth is up to the demand!

      1. Thank you very much, Evan for your so clear reply.
        I do not think it is trying God, when we are not wearng masks and gloves, if we are going out into public shopping etc. with much love and companion in our heart and good thoughts towards our neigbor attained from our study of the lesson sermon in connection with our prayer each day. That means going out with God and then we and all with whom we come in contact are totally blessed ans protected.

  16. I have been working with. Mrs eddy BELOVED C.S. statement. Because we are working for our loveds ones and the world. Very timely all the time. CDC. is God.

  17. Thank you very much, Evan to remind us what Mrs. Eddy says. Good thoughts and spiritual conciousnes is attained through praying and studying daily, for Instance to study the weekly lesson sermon. That is utmost neccessary and very helpful for good thoughts and to cultivaze spiritual conciousnes.
    That help a lot to pray for the World specially in these times. Thank God for Christian Science and Christ Jesus!

  18. Mrs Eddy experienced many symptoms at various times even after her great revelation.
    She would go into her study and return fit and happy as ever. And in short order. In as many books as tell of her life. Peel, Beasley, Wilbur and others.
    If she overcame these challenges in her spiritual state we might have similar experiences.
    But they are really nothing, no-thing .
    If there were no challenges to heath then there would never be a testimony of their healing.
    It’s only in thought, once recognized it is self seen and is destroyed by Truth.
    Many experiences I’ve had during the time of learning how to fight back against error.
    Sometimes calling upon a skilled and experienced practitioner, but now venturing out with the Christ. Feeling better with holding on to the Truth instead of dwelling on what seems to be a symptom. Fever is fear, dismiss it and the temperature is normal.

  19. I have been working with this article from the Mary Baker Eddy library it’s not by Mary BakerEddy was never published in the Journal, but it’s so powerful. The part 3 Starts out This is God’s spiritual household.
    Nothing can enter to annoy or destroy. Nothing can enter to manifest sin, sickness: nor death, nor discouragement, for God, good, fills this household with perfect love and peace and governs every member of it…it goes on I have been changing up the word household with ( universe, community, ect.) what ever your need is. I found this month’s ago and have been working with it since.
    The Authorship of ‘A Treatment for Every Day ‘
    Thank you Evan and thank you all for these wonderful posts.

  20. There has never been Truth AND error. Only Truth IS.

    “It is Truth’s knowledge of Its own infinitude which forbids the genuine existence of even a claim to error. This knowledge is light wherein there is no darkness — not light holding darkness within itself. The consciousness of light is like the eternal law of God, revealing Him and nothing else.”
    (No and Yes 30:18)

  21. I also like the idea of unclasping the hold of COVID-19, as stated in SH
    “The power of Christian Science and divine Love is omnipotent. It is indeed adequate to unclasp the hold and to destroy disease, sin, and death.”
