Ernest Holmes - Science of Mind

A Primer for Living a Life

Conviction

Mental Science does not deny the divinity of Jesus; but it does affirm the divinity of all people. It does not deny that Jesus was the son of God; but it affirms that all men are the sons of God. It does not deny that the kingdom of God was revealed through Jesus; but it says that the kingdom of God is also revealed through you and me.

Jesus said: “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Faith is centered in, and co-operates with, Divine Mind.

Because we fail to realize that Principle is not bound by precedent, we limit our faith to that which has already been accomplished, Because we fail to realize that Principle is not bound by precedent, we limit our faith to that which has already been accomplished, and few “miracles” result. When, through intuition, faith finds its proper place under Divine Law, there are no limitations, and what are called miraculous results follow.

While Jesus remained with the disciples, their faith for the most part was of the same essence as his, but as the years passed and his followers became more and more immersed in objective organization, they ceased to preach the necessity of a living faith. In fact, a few hundred years later, the Christians were teaching that the early “miracles” merely proved the divinity of Jesus!

If we are to have an active faith—the faith of God instead of merely a faith in God—our thought must be centered in Universal Mind. We are convinced that under Divine Law all things are possible, if we only believe, and work in conformity with the principles of that Law. Such a faith does not spring full-orbed into being, but grows by knowledge and experience. No matter what the outside appearance, we must cling steadfastly to the knowledge that God is good, and God is all, underneath, above and round about. Thus we shall be able to say, with conviction: “I know in whom I have believed....”
