3It did; but this believing was more than faith in the fact that Jesus was the Messiah. Here the verb believe took its original meaning, namely, to be firm, — yea, to
6understand those great truths asserted of the Messiah: it meant to discern and consent to that infinite demand made upon the eunuch in those few words of the apostle.
9Philip's requirement was, that he should not only ac- knowledge the incarnation, — God made manifest through man, — but even the eternal unity of man and God, as

Can Christian Science Mind-healing be taught to those who are absent?
9The Science of Mind-healing can no more be taught thus, than can science in any other direction. I know not how to teach either Euclid or the Science of Mind
