Metaphysics, as taught by me at the Massachusetts Metaphysical College, is far from dry and abstract. It
18is a Science that has the animus of Truth. Its practical application to benefit the race, heal the sick, enlighten and reform the sinner, makes divine metaphysics need-
21ful, indispensable. Teaching metaphysics at other col- leges means, mainly, elaborating a man-made theory, or some speculative view too vapory and hypothetical
24for questions of practical import.
Is it necessary to study your Science in order to be healed by it and keep well?
27It is not necessary to make each patient a student in order to cure his present disease, if this is what you mean. Were it so, the Science would be of less
1practical value. Many who apply for help are not prepared to take a course of instruction in Christian
To avoid being subject to disease, would require the understanding of how you are healed. In 1885, this
6knowledge can be obtained in its genuineness at the Massachusetts Metaphysical College. There are abroad at this early date some grossly incorrect and false
9teachers of what they term Christian Science; of such beware. They have risen up in a day to make this claim; whereas the Founder of genuine Christian Science has
12been all her years in giving it birth. .
Can you take care of yourself ?
God giveth to every one this puissance; and I have
15faith in His promise, "Lo, I am with you alway" — all the way. Unlike the M. D.'s, Christian Scientists are not afraid to take their own medicine, for this
18medicine is divine Mind; and from this saving, ex- haustless source they intend to fill the human mind with enough of the leaven of Truth to leaven the whole lump.
21There may be exceptional cases, where one Christian Scientist who has more to meet than others needs support at times; then, it is right to bear "one another's burdens,
24and so fulfil the law of Christ."
