    Let error rage and imagine a vain thing. Mary Baker 15Eddy is not dead, and the words of those who say that she is are the father of their wish. Her life is proven under trial, and evidences “as thy days, so shall thy strength be.”

18    Those words of our dear, departing Saviour, breathing love for his enemies, fill my heart: “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” My writings heal the 21sick, and I thank God that for the past forty years I have returned good for evil, and that I can appeal to Him as my witness to the truth of this statement.

24    What we love determines what we are. I love the prosperity of Zion, be it promoted by Catholic, by Protestant, or by Christian Science, which anoints with 27Truth, opening the eyes of the blind and healing the sick. I would no more quarrel with a man because of his religion than I would because of his art. The divine Principle of 30Christian Science will ultimately be seen to control both religion and art in unity and harmony. God is Spirit, and “they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit 271 271:1and in truth.” If, as the Scriptures declare, God, Spirit, is infinite, matter and material sense are null, and there 3are no vertebrata, mollusca, or radiata.

    When I wrote “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” I little understood all that I indited; but 6when I practised its precepts, healing the sick and reforming the sinner, then I learned the truth of what I had written. It is of comparatively little importance what a 9man thinks or believes he knows; the good that a man does is the one thing needful and the sole proof of rightness.

[The Evening Press, Grand Rapids, Mich., August, 1907]
