21guided senses, and curing alike the sin and the mortal sinner. God's preparations for the sick are potions of His own qualities. His therapeutics are antidotes for
24the ailments of mortal mind and body. Then let us not adulterate His preparations for the sick with material means.
27From lack of moral strength empires fall. Right alone is irresistible, permanent, eternal. Remember that hu- man pride forfeits spiritual power, and either vacillating
30good or self-assertive error dies of its own elements. Through patience we must possess the sense of Truth; and Truth is used to waiting. "Commit thy way unto
1the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass."
3By using falsehood to regain his liberty, Galileo vir- tually lost it. He cannot escape from barriers who com- mits his moral sense to a dungeon. Hear the Master
6on this subject: "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot
9serve God and mammon."
Lives there a man who can better define ethics, better elucidate the Principle of being, than he who "spake as
12never man spake," and whose precepts and example have a perpetual freshness in relation to human events?
Who is it that understands, unmistakably, a fraction
15of the actual Science of Mind-healing?
It is he who has fairly proven his knowledge on a Chris- tian, mental, scientific basis; who has made his choice
18between matter and Mind, and proven the divine Mind to be the only physician. These are self-evident proposi- tions: That man can only be Christianized through Mind;
21that without Mind the body is without action; that Science is a law of divine Mind. The conclusion follows that the correct Mind-healing is the proper means of Christianity,
24and is Science.
Christian Science may be sold in the shambles. Many are bidding for it, — but are not willing to pay the price.
27Error is vending itself on trust, well knowing the will- ingness of mortals to buy error at par value. The Reve- lator beheld the opening of this silent mental seal, and
30heard the great Red Dragon whispering that "no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."
