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.
There are evil beliefs, often called evil spirits; but 207 207:1these evils are not Spirit, for there is no evil in Spirit. Because God is Spirit, evil becomes more apparent and 3No evil in Spiritobnoxious proportionately as we advance spir‐itually, until it disappears from our lives. This fact proves our position, for every scientific state‐6ment in Christianity has its proof. Error of statement leads to error in action.
God is not the creator of an evil mind. Indeed, evil 9is not Mind. We must learn that evil is the awful decep‐Subordination of eviltion and unreality of existence. Evil is not supreme; good is not helpless; nor are the 12so-called laws of matter primary, and the law of Spirit secondary. Without this lesson, we lose sight of the per‐fect Father, or the divine Principle of man.
15 Body is not first and Soul last, nor is evil mightier than Evident impossibilitiesgood. The Science of being repudiates self-evident impossibilities, such as the amalgama‐18tion of Truth and error in cause or effect. Science sepa‐rates the tares and wheat in time of harvest.
There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can 21be no effect from any other cause, and there can be no One primal causereality in aught which does not proceed from this great and only cause. Sin, sickness, dis‐24ease, and death belong not to the Science of being. They are the errors, which presuppose the absence of Truth, Life, or Love.
