Material phenomena and sense testimony seem to be stubborn realities, even to a Christian Scientist, until he has proven them otherwise. In the same way a mathematical error is a stubborn reality to the one demonstrating a rule in arithmetic, until his study of the basic law enables him to see that error in its true light of nothingness. Christian Science does not teach that man has no body, or that there are no such things as bones to be broken and set, but it does prove, by healing them through mental means and without material application or appliances, that these mortal, material bodies and these bones have only the substantiality which mortal belief gives them. In the same way Christian Scientists have substantiated the teaching of their Science, that poisons have only the power delegated to them by human belief by mentally counteracting their effects in hundreds of cases.
