27error of belief is idolatry, having "other gods before me." In John i. 3 we read, "All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. "

1The admission of the reality of evil perpetuates the belief or faith in evil. The Scriptures declare, "To whom ye

3yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are." The leading self-evident proposition of Christian Science is: good being real, evil, good's opposite, is unreal. This

6truism needs only to be tested scientifically to be found true, and adapted to destroy the appearance of evil to an extent beyond the power of any doctrine previously


Do you teach that you are equal with God?

A reader of my writings would not present this ques-

12tion. There are no such indications in the premises or conclusions of Christian Science, and such a misconcep- tion of Truth is not scientific. Man is not equal with

15his Maker; that which is formed is not cause, but effect, and has no power underived from its creator. It is pos- sible, and it is man's duty, so to throw the weight of his

18thoughts and acts on the side of Truth, that he be ever found in the scale with his creator; not weighing equally with Him, but comprehending at every point, in

21divine Science, the full significance of what the apostle meant by the declaration, "The Spirit itself beareth wit- ness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: and

24if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ." In Science, man represents his divine Prin- ciple, — the Life and Love that are God, — even as the

27idea of sound, in tones, represents harmony; but thought has not yet wholly attained unto the Science of being, wherein man is perfect even as the Father, his divine

30Principle, is perfect.

1How can I believe that there is no such thing as matter, when I weigh over two hundred pounds and carry about

3this weight daily?
