You only weaken your power to heal through Mind, 15by any compromise with matter; which is virtually ac‐knowledging that under difficulties the former is not equal to the latter.

The teachings of Jesus were simple; and yet he found 24it difficult to make the rulers understand, because of their great lack of spirituality. Christian Science is simple, and readily understood by the children; only 27the thought educated away from it finds it abstract or difficult to perceive. Its seeming abstraction is the mystery of godliness; and godliness is simple to the 30godly; but to the unspiritual, the ungodly, it is dark 54 54:1and difficult. The carnal mind cannot discern spiritual things.
Has the sun forgotten to shine, and the planets to revolve around it? Who is it that discovered, dem‐6onstrated, and teaches Christian Science? That one, whoever it be, does understand something of what can‐not be lost. Thousands in the field of metaphysical 9healing, whose lives are worthy testimonials, are her students, and they bear witness to this fact. Instead of losing her power to heal, she is demonstrating the 12power of Christian Science over all obstacles that envy and malice would fling in her path. The reading of her book, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” 15is curing hundreds at this very time; and the sick, un‐asked, are testifying thereto.
