is Truth and Love; that God is to be understood, adored,
and demonstrated; that divine Truth casts out suppositional
error and heals the sick.
(God's law destroys evil)
The way which leads to Christian Science is straight
and narrow. God has set His signet upon Science, making

If error were true, its truth would be error, and we should
have a self-evident absurdity-namely, erroneous truth.
Thus we should continue to lose the standard of Truth.

belief, until God strips off their disguise. They are not
true, because they are not of God. We learn in Christian
