Skepticism, Doubt, and Faith


Skepticism, Doubt, and Faith: Is Science of Mind still relevant in 2020?

Amanda Pope RScP


Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.

— Paul Tillich


Ernest Holmes wrote the Science of Mind almost 100 years ago. All aspects of life have certainly changed since then. So, in this modern world and during these tumultuous times, are the teachings of Ernest Holmes still relevant?

Amanda Pope explores the foundational principles of the Science of Mind and their contemporary application.

Join us this Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 10:30am on Facebook Live.


This Week’s Point of View from the Science of Mind

There is no room for doubt in a treatment. Realize that you treat with your understanding, through the Law. Meditate upon the spiritual significance of the statements you make.

When skepticism enters our thoughts, it destroys faith. Since every thought is a prayer, we have to carefully monitor our thoughts so that our faith is not compromised. We must continually feed our faith with supporting input.

Every time you have a successful manifestation of an affirmative prayer, add it to your Success Journal. This will continually feed your faith muscles. Build your faith until it become Knowing.
