God will not be mocked "whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap"Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Gal 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. when I rejoiced in my last letter over one sinner that repentethLuke 15:1 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him. Luke 15:2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. Luke 15:3 ¶And he spake this parable unto them, saying, Luke 15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? Luke 15:5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. Luke 15:6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. Luke 15:8 ¶Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? Luke 15:9 And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. I had not examined the case mentally but simply took your word for what was said by you. Now I ask you do you not know "that nothing is hid that shall not be revealedMatt 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Luke 12:2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Luke 12:3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. "? that I can read the real state of your mind? and now I demand an answer from you to this question namely Do you turn the mind or try to turn it of an individual in your favor and against another person? and thus malpractice Christian Science? If your are honest in your reply I shall have hopes of your future even if you say "yes" but if you are not I know the result let it come sooner or later it will certainly come and history will place you on the side of the malpractitioner When O when will you see the work of the enemy to destroy your interest and happiness and success and stop before you step too far to stop

Another question, with your sensuality do you contemplate trying to teach for at least fifty years this holy and pure scienceEditorial Note: Christian Science that my most Christian As Written: christian and purest students would not attempt?

Answer me these two questions, and answer them honestly.

I do not find that you have dealt honestly with me even in this last assurance that you had taken back the influence you left on the minds of others that did me injustice and you know it
