May divine Love so permeate the affections of all those who have named the name of Christ in its fullest sense, that no counteracting influence can hinder their growth or taint their examples.

460 — WATCH that you accentuate and amplify your scientific declarations, by knowing that the infinite power of God is back of them. Once Mrs. Eddy brought forth this point by saying, “Every true and noble thought helps to raise humanity and lets the light in.”
What we speak humanly instantly vanishes. Radio broadcasts appear to do likewise. On the contrary whatever comes from God continually amplifies, remains to grow louder and louder, and becomes more imperative until eventually it will fill the world. If we regard our scientific arguments as supported by omnipotence, they will let in the light that will increase and spread without limit.

Golden Text — “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” — III John : 4
Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts.
— from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, page 260
1. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Forum post — Confidence in the Power and Supremacy of Truth by Florence Roberts
What we are seemingly lacking in is intelligence, faith, and confidence. Error will come up and declare that you do not realize the Truth. What are you going to do about it? Are you going to say, “I don’t realize it”? It is easy to wind Christian Scientists up, unless they wake up. What is your Saviour? Is it, “I am discouraged; I cannot realize the Truth”? Is it, “I haven’t enough confidence in my treatment”? What is the one who is being saved going to do? He will declare, “I do realize the Truth. It shall not return void. It is the Word of God, and I cannot be mesmerized to believe I have not confidence in it.” That is what one who is being saved will know.

Trust in Truth, and have no other trusts.
— from Miscellaneous Writings by Mary Baker Eddy, page 171
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
— John 8 : 32 from citation 1 in the Bible portion of this week’s Lesson
The eternal Truth destroys what mortals seem to have learned from error, and man’s real existence as a child of God comes to light.
— from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, page 288
Which of these two theories concerning man are you ready to accept? One is the mortal testimony, changing, dying, unreal. The other is the eternal and real evidence, bearing Truth’s signet, its lap piled high with immortal fruits.

The confidence inspired by Science lies in the fact that Truth is real and error is unreal. Error is a coward before Truth.
