6mind. But Mind is immortal; and the fact of there being no mortal mind, exposes the lie of suppositional evil, showing that error is not Mind, substance, or

9Life. Thus, whatever is wrongfully-minded will dis- appear in the proportion that Science is understood, and the reality of being — goodness and harmony — is

12demonstrated.

Error says that knowing all things implies the neces- sity of knowing evil, that it dishonors God to claim that

15He is ignorant of anything; but God says of this fruit of the tree of knowledge of both good and evil, "In the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die." If

12We regret to be obliged to say that all are not meta- physicians, or Christian Scientists, who call themselves so. Charlatanism, fraud, and malice are getting into

15the ranks of the good and pure, sending forth a poison more deadly than the upas-tree in the eastern archi- pelago. This evil obtains in the present false teaching
