of the word sense for soul gives the exact meaning in
a majority of cases.
Human thought has adulterated the meaning of the
word soul through the hypothesis that soul is both an evil
and a good intelligence, resident in matter.
The proper use of the word soul can always
be gained by substituting the word God, where the deific
meaning is required. In other cases, use the word sense,
and you will have the scientific signification. As used
in Christian Science, Soul is properly the synonym of
Spirit, or God; but out of Science, soul is identical with
sense, with material sensation.

Question 17. - Is it important to understand these explanations
in order to heal the sick?
( - Adam: An unreality as opposed to the great reality of
spiritual existence and creation - )
Answer. - It is, since Christ is "the way" and the
truth casting out all error. Jesus called himself "the
Son of man," but not the son of Joseph. As
woman is but a species of the genera, he was
literally the Son of Man. Jesus was the highest human
concept of the perfect man. He was inseparable from
Christ, the Messiah, - the divine idea of God outside
the flesh. This enabled Jesus to demonstrate his control
over matter. Angels announced to the Wisemen of
old this dual appearing, and angels whisper it, through
faith, to the hungering heart in every age.
Sickness is part of the error which Truth casts out.
Error will not expel error. Christian Science is the law
of Truth, which heals the sick on the basis
of the one Mind or God. It can heal in no
other way, since the human, mortal mind so-called is not
a healer, but causes the belief in disease.
