"BE NOT AFRAID."

The urgent need of Christian Scientists is to make practical use of the teachings of their text-book, Science and Health, and as a first step in this direction they should turn to page 410 of this book and read and ponder Mrs. Eddy's words, "Christian scientific practice begins with Christ's key-note of harmony, 'Be not afraid!'" then to page 192, where they will find the statement, "Evil is not power." To be afraid, or to give power to evil, is to admit that there is a creator apart from God, good, an admission which in effect denies that first and fundamental plank of Christianity, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me."

Elsewhere in Science and Health Mrs. Eddy makes many statements of similar nature, notably the one on page 454, where she writes, "The understanding, even in a degree, of the divine All-power destroys fear, and plants the feet in the true path,--the path which leads to the house built without hands 'eternal in the heavens.' Human hate has no legitimate mandate and no kingdom. Love is enthroned. That evil or matter has neither intelligence nor power, is the doctrine of absolute Christian Science, and this is the great truth which strips all disguise from error." Again, on page 469, she says, "Evil can have no place, where all space is filled with God."
