    Your testimony assures us of God’s love for his children. How simple but efficient! My friend that listened to your message said she was up lifted. Thank you for sharing

    Thank you for this, it’s very helpful. I shared it with several friends who are not Christian Scientists and they were pleased, felt quite inspired.

    “What The World Needs Now!”

    Wow. Great Work, Brian!
    (Thank you, too, David. Fine videography)

    Now to SEE, Really See, (Sue!) that there are “no struggling, vulnerable-to-disease-mortals on a troubled earth.” God is ALL-in-all!

    Let’s get to the bottom of the animal magnetism that would try to assert (hypnotize) us (me!) into believing otherwise!!


    Much love,

    Sue Krevitt

    Such a powerful message of healing, with instruction on how you pray, Brian, and how we can all pray, for ourselves and the world. With much gratitude for recording and posting it.

    What a trully inspiring testimony to encourage us all to stick to the Truth of Being, no matter what our outward senses are trying to tell us. Is this hard, difficult ? Mrs. Eddy tells us never to look back to the footsteps already completed, rather let us look forward to the joyous work ahead of us.
    Thank you so much for this warm encouragement to keep up the good work and not to give in to erring mortal sense.

    Thank you So much for the inspiration and wonderful healing Brian! Can you send this to the Lompoc, CA prison where I read that many are infected with CD19? Or to a chaplain there….

      Thank you for the note Sasha. Why don’t you contact the Head Chaplain at Lompoc and see if he would be willing to post this video for inmates to see. And if so, send him a link from the site.

      Hope this helps,

    Thank you, Brian, for sharing this Beautiful Healing of a Virus Infection. This is so Important and Needs to be heard Now….. with all the talk of Death from the Coronavirus. Spiritual Healing is still available today, as it was in Jesus’ time, and we can All access the Power of Prayer to Heal! God Bless!

    Thank you for the blessing you’ve given all of us, Brian and David. What an example of Infinite, all-embracing Love’s ability to triumph over unjust beliefs! May all the dear sons and daughters of a loving Father and Mother God, feel that loving embrace in their cells. May they use this time to listen to their inner selves and develop their natural God-given abilities and spiritual talents. Our awesome God is blessing and loving us all right now and forevermore.

    Thank you, Brian, for sharing your thoughts and this wonderful healing story. I know that not everyone viewing the video and reading this is a student of Christian Science, but I’m grateful that we can share this, knowing that God can still heal all diseases today. (See Psalm 103:1-3)

    Great to hear from Bryan Talcot. He addressed a state committee meeting back in the day and I still recall his comments about “many are called but few are chosen”. He said we are all called but we choose ourselves to be the chosen. Great comment for those who choose not to chaplain CS, etc..
    My input would be to counter every ungodlike comment in the media, etc.. with what God says AND THEN REASON from what God says as follows: I had a 14 year old girl in Juvenile Hall here who was in a straight jacket and suicidal. I asked her what her problem was and she said she gets angry and doesn’t want to live. I asked her to read the “you say, God says” exercise every morning and live her life as if what she was hearing God say. I came back the next week and found her without the jacket and with the other girls. She told me she had a great week. She said God isn’t angry and I don’t have to be either and God loves me and I have a lot to live for. Anger and suicide healed by a child.
    So that’s what we can do as CSers. I’ve included the “you say, God says” exercise and feel free to use it. To me it is CS practice 101 for anyone but as CSers who know God as Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principal, Life, Truth, Love. So what does Mind say (Mind is all, therefore there is no mortal mind), Spirit says I am reality therefore (matter is unreal), Soul says I am spiritual sense therefor there is no material sense, etc.. .

    Genesis 1:31 tells us God saw everything He made as “very good”, therefore evil can only exist as a lie about God like 2+2=10 is a lie about 2+2=4; Jesus said “he (the devil) is a liar and the father of it John 8:44 and we can correct the evil in our experience like we correct mathematical errors by knowing the truth as Jesus tells in John 8:32, ‘Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free”. But first we have to listen to the truth as follows:

    You say: “It’s impossible” God says: All things are possible (Luke 18:27)

    You say: “I’m too tired” God says: I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28-30)

    You say: “Nobody loves me” God says: I love you (John 3:16 )

    You say: “I can’t go on” God says: My grace is sufficient (II Cor 12:9)

    You say: “I can’t figure things out” God says: I will direct your steps (Prov 3:5-6)

    You say: “I can’t do it” God says: You can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13)

    You say: “I’m not able” God says: I am able (II Corinthians 9:8)

    You say: “Nothing is working” God says: All things work together for good to them that love God
    (Rom 8;28)
    You say: “I can’t forgive myself” God says: I Forgive you (Ps 86:5, Luke 23:34

    You say: “I can’t manage God says: I will supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19)

    You say: “I’m afraid” God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear (II Tim 1:7)

    You say: “I’m always worried” God says: Cast all your cares on Him (I Peter 5:7)

    You say: “I’m not smart enough” God says: I give you wisdom (James 1:5)

    You say: “I’m all alone” God says: I will never leave or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5)
    Read the above every morning for a week and replace all un-Godlike thoughts with God’s thoughts on the basis of Jesus’ command Matt 5:48 “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” and you are God’s image and likeness (Gen 1:26-27 and then act as if what God tells you is the truth as Jesus tells us “What things so ever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24
    Scientific Prayer
    1. Have faith God can answer your prayers. Faith is believing what you can’t see.
    2. Be grateful for everything you can see…gratitude prepares you to hear God, You cannot hear God if you are upset, discouraged, angry, etc. and you can’t be both upset, etc. and grateful at the same time..a fountain cannot send for both bitter and sweet water James 3:11 …so choose to be grateful and hear God
    3. Challenge thoughts. Did God tell me that? Then listen to what God is telling you based on the principle that you are God’s “image and likeness” Gen 1:26; and replace what you say with what God says as shown above and then act as if what God tells you is true.
    4. Start BEING the spiritual qualities of gratitude, joy, and love you would be as God’s image and likeness right here, right now wherever and FOREVER!


    James 1:22 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”

    Matthew 7: 24-26  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

    Before going to bed each night, write at least one ungodlike thought that you’ve had that day and replace it with what a good and perfect God says and then act like what you’ve heard is the Truth. Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free John 8: 32
