    The power of the human will should be exercised only in subordination to Truth; else it will misguide the judg6Will-power unrighteousment and free the lower propensities. It is the province of spiritual sense to govern man. Material, erring, human thought acts injuriously both 9upon the body and through it.

    Will-power is capable of all evil. It can never heal the sick, for it is the prayer of the unrighteous; while 12the exercise of the sentiments — hope, faith, love — is the prayer of the righteous. This prayer, governed by Science instead of the senses, heals the sick.

15    In the scientific relation of God to man, we find that whatever blesses one blesses all, as Jesus showed with the loaves and the fishes, — Spirit, not matter, being the 18source of supply.

    Does God send sickness, giving the mother her child for the brief space of a few years and then taking it away 21Birth and death unrealby death? Is God creating anew what He has already created? The Scriptures are definite on this point, declaring that His work was finished, 24 nothing is new to God, and that it was good.

    Can there be any birth or death for man, the spiritual image and likeness of God? Instead of God sending 27sickness and death, He destroys them, and brings to light immortality. Omnipotent and infinite Mind made all and includes all. This Mind does not make mistakes 30and subsequently correct them. God does not cause man to sin, to be sick, or to die.
