3understand nor demonstrate its Science, and will prac- tise your belief of it in the name of Truth. This is the mortal "mind-cure" that produces the effect of mes-
6merism. It is using the power of human will, instead of the divine power understood, as in Christian Science; and without this Science there had better be no "mind-
9cure," — in which the last state of patients is worse than the first.
Is it wrong to pray for the recovery of the sick?
12Not if we pray Scripturally, with the understanding that God has given all things to those who love Him; but pleading with infinite Love to love us, or to restore
15health and harmony, and then to admit that it has been lost under His government, is the prayer of doubt and mortal belief that is unavailing in divine Science.
18Is not all argument mind over mind?
The Scriptures refer to God as saying, "Come now, and let us reason together." There is but one right Mind, and
21that one should and does govern man. Any copartnership with that Mind is impossible; and the only benefit in speaking often one to another, arises from the success that
24one individual has with another in leading his thoughts away from the human mind or body, and guiding them with Truth. That individual is the best healer who as-
27serts himself the least, and thus becomes a transparency for the divine Mind, who is the only physician; the divine Mind is the scientific healer.
1How can you believe there is no sin, and that God does not recognize any, when He sent His Son to save from
3sin, and the Bible is addressed to sinners? How can you believe there is no sickness, when Jesus came healing the sick?
6To regard sin, disease, and death with less deference, and only as the woeful unrealities of being, is the only way to destroy them; Christian Science is proving this by
9healing cases of disease and sin after all other means have failed. The Nazarene Prophet could make the unreality of both apparent in a moment.
