6had a thorn in the flesh: one writer thinks that he was troubled with rheumatism, and another that he had sore eyes; but this is certain, that he healed others who were
9sick. It is unquestionably right to do right; and heal- ing the sick is a very right thing to do. Does Christian Science set aside the law of transmission,
12prenatal desires, and good or bad influences on the unborn child? Science never averts law, but supports it. All actual
15causation must interpret omnipotence, the all-knowing Mind. Law brings out Truth, not error; unfolds divine Principle, — but neither human hypothesis nor matter.
18Errors are based on a mortal or material formation; they are suppositional modes, not the factors of divine presence and power.
21Whatever is humanly conceived is a departure from divine law; hence its mythical origin and certain end. According to the Scriptures, — St. Paul declares astutely,
24"For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things," — man is incapable of originating: nothing can be formed apart from God, good, the all-knowing Mind.
27What seems to be of human origin is the counterfeit of the divine, — even human concepts, mortal shadows flitting across the dial of time.
30Whatever is real is right and eternal; hence the im- mutable and just law of Science, that God is good only,
1and can transmit to man and the universe nothing evil, or unlike Himself. For the innocent babe to be born a
3lifelong sufferer because of his parents' mistakes or sins, were sore injustice. Science sets aside man as a creator, and unfolds the eternal harmonies of the only living and
6true origin, God.
According to the beliefs of the flesh, both good and bad traits of the parents are transmitted to their help-
9less offspring, and God is supposed to impart to man this fatal power. It is cause for rejoicing that this belief is as false as it is remorseless. The immutable Word
