    Who wants to be mortal, or would not gain the true ideal of Life and recover his own individuality? I will 30love, if another hates. I will gain a balance on the side of good, my true being. This alone gives me the forces of God wherewith to overcome all error. On this rests the 105 105:1implicit faith engendered by Christian Science, which appeals intelligently to the facts of man’s spirituality, in3dividuality, to disdain the fears and destroy the discords of this material personality.

    On our Master’s individual demonstrations over sin, 6sickness, and death, rested the anathema of priesthood and the senses; yet this demonstration is the foundation of Christian Science. His physical sufferings, which 9came from the testimony of the senses, were over when he resumed his individual spiritual being, after showing us the way to escape from the material body.

12    Science would have no conflict with Life or common sense, if this sense were consistently sensible. Man’s real life or existence is in harmony with Life and its glorious 15phenomena. It upholds being, and destroys the too common sense of its opposites — death, disease, and sin. Christian Science is an everlasting victor, and vanquish18ment is unknown to the omnipresent Truth. I must ever follow this line of light and battle.

    Christian Science is my only ideal; and the individual 21and his ideal can never be severed. If either is misunderstood or maligned, it eclipses the other with the shadow cast by this error.

24    Truth destroys error. Nothing appears to the physical senses but their own subjective state of thought. The senses join issue with error, and pity what has no right 27either to be pitied or to exist, and what does not exist in Science. Destroy the thought of sin, sickness, death, and you destroy their existence. “Whatsoever a man soweth, 30that shall he also reap.”
