It is quite obvious that a man who knows the truth about a mistake is in a position to correct that mistake, and it is equally clear that a man who does not understand the method whereby the mistake is corrected, is not in a position to criticize the method. An error is equally an error, whether manifested in a man or a horse, and Christian Scientists have proved that, to the extent that they adhere to the teachings of the Bible and their text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, they are able to heal the sick—whether man or animal.

Thousands of grateful men and women have learned through the teachings of Christian Science that the beliefs in sin, sickness, fear, and discord are no more real, no more powerful or part of the creation of God today, than they were when the Master cast them out through his knowledge of the immutable law of God. In this connection it is helpful to remember the young man who was born blind. Jesus the Christ knew that there was no law by which he was condemned to be blind, and with this knowledge he healed him. What was the result? They said to Jesus, "This man is a sinner," and they cast out the man who had been healed. The same law which Jesus and his disciples taught and applied nineteen hundred years ago has again been revealed to this age by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and it is through a knowledge of this law alone that sin is destroyed and sickness healed. If materia medica never failed, there might be some excuse for criticizing the efforts of others engaged in the work of helping humanity; again, because the methods of Christian Science are not the same as the methods of materia medica, it is essential that the physician should first carefully study and apply the teachings of Christian Science before attempting to pass judgment on them.
