9When patients are under material medical treatment, it is advisable in most cases that Scientists do not treat them, or interfere with materia medica. If the patient
12is in peril, and you save him or alleviate his sufferings, although the medical attendant and friends have no faith in your method, it is humane, and not unchristian,
15to do him all the good you can; but your good will gen- erally "be evil spoken of." The hazard of casting "pearls before swine" caused our Master to refuse help to some

30only avail himself of the efficacy of Truth, and recog-
1nize his Saviour. He must know that God is omnipo- tent; hence, that sin is impotent. He must know that
3the power of sin is the pleasure in sin. Take away this pleasure, and you remove all reality from its power. Jesus demonstrated sin and death to be powerless. This
6practical Truth saves from sin, and will save all who understand it.
Is it wrong for a wife to have a husband treated for

It is always right to act rightly; but sometimes, under
12circumstances exceptional, it is inexpedient to attack evil. This rule is forever golden: "As ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." Do you
15desire to be freed from sin? Then help others to be free; but in your measures, obey the Scriptures, "Be ye wise as serpents." Break the yoke of bondage in every wise
