perplexed, our devious career resembles the groping of
Homer's Cyclops around his cave."
Sir John Forbes, M.D., F.R.S., Fellow of the Royal
College of Physicians, London, said:
"No systematic or theoretical classification of diseases
or of therapeutic agents, ever yet promulgated, is true, or
anything like the truth, and none can be adopted as a safe
guidance in practice."
It is just to say that generally the cultured class of medical
practitioners are grand men and women, therefore
they are more scientific than are false claimants to Christian
Science. But all human systems based on material
premises are minus the unction of divine Science. Much
yet remains to be said and done before all mankind is
saved and all the mental microbes of sin and all diseased
thought - germs are exterminated.
If you or I should appear to die, we should not be
dead. The seeming decease, caused by a majority of
human beliefs that man must die, or produced by mental
assassins, does not in the least disprove Christian Science;
rather does it evidence the truth of its basic proposition
that mortal thoughts in belief rule the materiality miscalled
life in the body or in matter. But the forever fact
remains paramount that Life, Truth, and Love save from
sin, disease, and death. "When this corruptible shall have
put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on
immortality [divine Science], then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in
victory" (St. Paul).
