It is he who has fairly proven his knowledge on a Chris‐tian, mental, scientific basis; who has made his choice 18between matter and Mind, and proven the divine Mind to be the only physician. These are self-evident proposi‐tions: That man can only be Christianized through Mind; 21that without Mind the body is without action; that Science is a law of divine Mind. The conclusion follows that the correct Mind-healing is the proper means of Christianity, 24and is Science.
Christian Science may be sold in the shambles. Many are bidding for it, — but are not willing to pay the price. 27Error is vending itself on trust, well knowing the will‐ingness of mortals to buy error at par value. The Reve‐lator beheld the opening of this silent mental seal, and 30heard the great Red Dragon whispering that “no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
270:1 We are in the Valley of Decision.

What artist would question the skill of the masters in 6sculpture, music, or painting? Shall we depart from the example of the Master in Christian Science, Jesus of Nazareth, — than whom mankind hath no higher ideal? 9He who demonstrated his power over sin, disease, and death, is the master Metaphysician.
To seek or employ other means than those the Master 12used in demonstrating Life scientifically, is to lose the priceless knowledge of his Principle and practice. He said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His right‐15eousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Gain a pure Christianity; for that is requisite for heal‐ing the sick. Then you will need no other aid, and will 18have full faith in his prophecy, “And there shall be one fold, and one shepherd;” but, the Word must abide in us, if we would obtain that promise. We cannot depart 21from his holy example, — we cannot leave Christ for the schools which crucify him, and yet follow him in heal‐ing. Fidelity to his precepts and practice is the only pass‐24port to his power; and the pathway of goodness and greatness runs through the modes and methods of God.
