From the divine Mind, God, the source of all power and all goodness, comes all real healing. The Bible says of Jesus that he "was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." His knowledge of Truth, being without sin, was so unclouded that he could demonstrate it by healing "all manner of disease." Christian Science, as taught and practised, has made its followers better men and women, better citizens, better fathers and mothers, better Christians, and this betterment has meant the overcoming of selfishness, sordidness, commonness, temper, jealousy, envy, hatred and other vices.

As Christian Scientists, we have accepted the invitation of Jesus to the heavy laden and found rest. If a change of mental environment enables one to come by one's own and brings with it the "choicest viands, softest clothing, and best living," it does not follow that the beneficiary has no feeling for others less fortunate. He knows the same honest sincere prayer will likewise bring his neighbor into the land of "milk and honey," but it is for the neighbor to decide if the overcoming is worth the reward.
