27God's interpretation of Himself furnishes man with the only suitable or true idea of Him; and the divine definition of Deity differs essentially from the human.

30It interprets the law of Spirit, not of matter. It explains the eternal dynamics of being, and shows that nature and man are as harmonious to-day as in the beginning,

3Whatever appears to be law, but partakes not of the nature of God, is not law, but is what Jesus declared it, "a liar, and the father of it." God is the law of Life,

6not of death; of health, not of sickness; of good, not of evil. It is this infinitude and oneness of good that silences the supposition that evil is a claimant or a claim.

9The consciousness of good has no consciousness or knowl- edge of evil; and evil is not a quality to be known or eliminated by good: while iniquity, too evil to conceive

12of good as being unlike itself, declares that God knows iniquity!

When the Lawgiver was the only law of creation, free-

15dom reigned, and was the heritage of man; but this freedom was the moral power of good, not of evil: it was divine Science, in which God is supreme, and the

18only law of being. In this eternal harmony of Science, man is not fallen: he is governed in the same rhythm that the Scripture describes, when "the morning stars

21sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy."


The spiritual elevator of the human race, physically,

24morally, and Christianly, is the truism that Truth dem- onstrates good, and is natural; while error, or evil, is really non-existent, and must have produced its own

27illusion, — for it belongs not to nature nor to God. Truth is the power of God which heals the sick and the sinner, and is applicable to all the needs of man. It is the uni-

3flicts, defeats, and triumphs, Christian Science has been reduced to the understanding of mortals, and found able to heal them.
