In an admirable article redolent with common sense in a recent issue with the heading, "Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise," a kindly reference is made to Christian Science in the following words: "There is a psychological fact at the bottom of it—the fact that the mind has a powerful influence on the body."

This I heartily endorse; but to leave the matter there would give the impression that Christianity relied for its healing, and for the prevention of disease, on the human mind, or "carnal mind," as St. Paul called it. Now, this mind is "enmity against God." The human, or carnal, mind is not a healer, but the procurer of every discordant condition,—sin, sickness, poverty, and worry. On the other hand the divine Mind, or universal intelligence governing all harmoniously, heals these conditions, lifts men above them, and must at some time infallibly destroy them. To acknowledge no other mind or intelligence, is to have that Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus."

Christendom will return to its "first love" and again acknowledge no other power, presence, or intelligence than divine Mind; that is, God Himself. This is the true millennium; there can be no other. With the destruction of the belief in "minds many" and the acknowledgment of the one Mind governing the universe, including man, sin will cease to claim to be a power or a presence, and with the destruction of sin as the cause, disease, the effect, ceases to be. Evil is not power; God, good, is the infinite power.
