Sickness is part of the error which Truth casts out.
Error will not expel error. Christian Science is the law
of Truth, which heals the sick on the basis
of the one Mind or God. It can heal in no
other way, since the human, mortal mind so-called is not
a healer, but causes the belief in disease.
Then comes the question, how do drugs, hygiene, and
animal magnetism heal? It may be affirmed that they
do not heal, but only relieve suffering temporarily,
exchanging one disease for another.
We classify disease as error, which nothing but Truth or
Mind can heal, and this Mind must be divine, not human.
Mind transcends all other power, and will ultimately supersede
all other means in healing. In order to heal by
Science, you must not be ignorant of the moral and spiritual
demands of Science nor disobey them. Moral ignorance
or sin affects your demonstration, and hinders its
approach to the standard in Christian Science.
