Would you like to be a more effective healer? If so, get to know God as Truth.

It’s Truth that heals the errors of the human mind that lead to suffering, disease, lack and conflict.

God is the ultimate Truth, and the sooner you get to know a God of Truth the easier it is to conquer error.

I filmed this video in the Deadhorse Ranch State Park near Cottonwood, Arizona, in October of 2020.

A God of Truth

  1. This is so very fine and it is Truth of all things. These words are dependable. Proveable and every present with us NOW and always. Thank you, Evan

  2. And. Isn’t it just wonderful that the smallest grain of that Truth that we understand, accept or acknowledge can only expand to permeate our experience …Truth cannot become stagnant, cannot diminish. Thank you Evan. The absolute sincerity of the spoken word today in this vlog is truly healing❣️

  3. A dear practitioner told me something years ago that has really stuck with me. She said something like: so often we forget the first part of that very familiar verse and it’s so important and shouldn’t be left out. Jesus says “IF” you do something “THEN”…. She said, we need to remember what is required of us to be free, I looked up a few Bible translations to get a better sense of what’s required.

    KJV: “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    JB Phillips: So Jesus said to the Jews who believed in him, “If you are faithful to what I have said, you are truly my disciples. And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free!”

    The Message Bible: “Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.”

    Amplified Bible: “So Jesus was saying to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly My disciples. 32 And you will know the truth [regarding salvation], and the truth will set you free [from the penalty of sin].”

    The Voice: Jesus (to the new Jewish believers): If you hear My voice and abide in My word, you are truly My disciples; you will know the truth, and that truth will give you freedom.

    I love the part of “hearing My voice!” I need to listen more!!!

    1. Thank you Sharon, for sharing these invaluable ways to think about this familiar passage. They really open thought up and expand the ways of embracing these words.

    2. Sharon~thank you for taking the time to share with us- what your dear practitioner shared with you. That is so valuable. I may take a screen shot if your comment and study it further.

      I love to see the word salvation and translate it to solution. God is the solution to every perceived problem or lack.

      Thank you, Evan for your wonderful and clear interpretation of Truth.

      There is a human idea about honesty being our only true boundary in life. The idea that we cannot place boundaries on others-only create boundaries for ourselves. Honesty is the best boundary.

      If I implement ideas of Christian Science in this line of thinking-about honesty. God’s Truth (true honesty) is our only true source of armor, weapon against error (boundary) “thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
      This is helpful to my thought- perhaps to others.
      Thank you for this wonderful community- and church family.

      1. Sharon, now I get it. Thanks. My nephew and reverend corrected me when I said” set”, instead of make. Quoting John 8:32. It was a different interpertation from a different Bible.
        Now I know there are a few others as well.

        1. Hi David: I was a religion major at Principia (I had to make up for lost time having come from being an agnostic who never went to church to finding Christian Science and doing a 180). I love looking at other translations to expand my sense of a verse. If you Google BibleGateway.com every conceivable Bible Translation is available. Warm regards.

      2. Christi, thanks for sharing the inspiration-truth that salvation means solution, and of course, that’s a HEALING solution. Truth always supplies a healing solution to whatever seems to be the challenge of our day. I also love to think of Truth as our oneness with God, Our Maker, Perfect Majesty. What blessings we have w this blog! And thank you to Evan and Sharon! Thanks be to God for giving us the new ideas used in technology so we can instantly look up different translations on Bible Gateway, et al.

        1. Cathryn-thanks for adding the word, HEALING-before solution-so true and helpful and the Truth of our Oneness- with God~good, there is nothing better!

    3. I’ve become more aware of the conditional insistence of the first phrase, which, in turn, ENABLES us to KNOW what Truth is!
      Thank you for these various translations. In my readings, I’ve been looking up and using a whole range of Biblical translations to find the one which conveys the clearest thought.

  4. Thanks, Evan. What a beautiful, simple, yet profound healing thought. “God is the only Truth.”

    Each one of your SpiritView messages is a Christian Science treatment — and a beautiful way to begin my day.

  5. Thank you Evan for today’s blessing and healing SpiritView! It is so clear, so distinct what you are teaching us today about God as TRUTH, that I do understand it better than before!
    And how refreshing the surrounding you had your holidays! God’s nature is so lovely with ponds, the Smile of the great Spirit, as Mrs. Eddy puts it in Science and Health.
    Am truely grateful for this lively and healing blog!♡

  6. Thank you Evan.
    A beautiful picture of reflection that compliments a perfect understanding of Truth.
    Thank you for your clarity and enthusiasm. I’m filled with joy ❣️
    Happy day to all.

  7. “Truth is affirmative. Truth, being it’s own joyous selfhood, it is all there is to your selfhood. Truth
    affirms, declares its own freedom, its own harmony,
    its own limitless perfection-and this affirmation is
    man.” Henty

  8. Thank you for this vlog, Evan. Our job is to understand God as Truth, as all that is real. Also, Sharon, appreciated the reminder to look at the whole passage in John 8:32. Having this blog and all the contributions from others is such a helpful way to focus my thought for the day along with my daily study.

  9. Thank you, Evan. Wonderfully enlightening Vlog. And thank you all for you comments they add to the value of this post enlightening my day.

  10. Thank you Evan and everyone helping me to understand more fully the simplicity of John 8:32.
    Truth has been applied for me by experienced practitioners throughout this life’s experience.
    Its effectiveness has “freed” me from some awful stuff. The daily experiences here and in study is making a more harmonious experience. Once while driving a challenge exhibited itself.
    I became afraid. The unmistakeable word “TRUTH” appeared in my thought like a neon sign.
    I was freed from the event and drove safely home. “Truth”, applicable each time error sneeks in and tries to upset the natural order of harmony.

  11. I especially loved this line, “Understanding God will set you free from that which has nothing to do with God.” That speaks volumes and I’m going to enjoy working with that today. Thank you, Evan, and fellow posters!

  12. I was given a book many years ago of eight translations of the New testament. Sharon, thank you for sharing this reminder of looking up .things more often. to clarify meanings. This vlog is a lovely way to start this day in the Northern CA. mountains after waking up to almost a foot of snow. Everything is crystal white and clean. Much Love to all..

  13. The absolute perfect reflection depicted in your photography
    Emphasizes the perfection of Gods creation. Thank you all
    For clarifying the meaning of Jesus words . The “if” and “then”
    conditions to be true followers is very helpful. Always learning
    From this Spiritview from you Evan and your followers. Thanks all.

  14. Thank you Evan for your empowering message today, supporting the conviction that God is the only Truth, and that all discord is a distortion of the human mind. This understanding is vital to our endeavors to be successful healers. And David, I love your experience and your reference to Truth being “the natural order of harmony”. This is the freeing law of God that is always operating, and always provable! We are so blessed in Christian Science to know this!
