How shall we treat a negation, or error — by means of matter, or Mind? Is matter Truth? No! Then it
24cannot antidote error.
Can belief destroy belief? No: understanding is re- quired to do this. By the substitution of Truth demon-
27strated, Science remedies the ills of material beliefs.
Because I have uncovered evil, and dis-covered for you divine Science, which saith, "Be not overcome of
30evil, but overcome evil with good," and you have not loved sufficiently to understand this Golden Rule and demonstrate the might of perfect Love that casteth out
1all fear, shall you turn away from this divine Principle to graven images? Remember the Scripture: —
3"But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
"And shall begin to smite his fellow-servants, and to
6eat and drink with the drunken;
"The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not
"And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his por- tion with the hypocrites."
12One mercilessly assails me for opposing the subtle lie, others charge upon me with full-fledged invective for, as they say, having too much charity; but neither moves
15me from the path made luminous by divine Love.
In my public works I lay bare the ability, in belief, of evil to break the Decalogue, — to murder, steal, commit
18adultery, and so on. Those who deny my wisdom or right to expose error, are either willing participants in wrong, afraid of its supposed power, or ignorant of it.
21The notion that one is covering iniquity by asserting its nothingness, is a fault of zealots, who, like Peter, sleep when the Watcher bids them watch, and when the
24hour of trial comes would cut off somebody's ears. Such people say, "Would you have me get out of a burning house, or stay in it?"
