notes Christian Healing and Mesmerism Contrasted

Two methods of healing disease

These methods are Materia Medica

the two systems of medicine laws of health etc are not harmless to out spiritual growth

Then is it too much to urge your earnest consideration

Christian Science is proof not profession

When we achieve full confidence in Spirit we must measurably understand Spirit

We cannot fill a vessel already full

This emptyingAs Written:emtying of material things means much

Thanks be to God who giveth us the victory then the delays of justice or human law to vindicate us and show where the guilt lies cannot prevent divine law from upholding us and lifting us above temptation and the fear to Yea to fight the good fightI Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Truth crushed to earth etc

Whosoever understands Christian Science sufficiently to heal the sick thereby blesses whomsoever that mind reaches

O the purifying and exalting power of Truth to purge of all error and lift O the beauty of holiness O the meekness as well as might that God hath given it Christian science masters all error and sits down meekly the right hand of God

No sooner would a scientist abandon his basis of Truth and go work in error than he would leap

The scientist blesses his enemies The smoker

How little the action of one mind on another mind to do good or evil is understood Hair oil
