In an article headed, "Says Lying Is Best Asset of Doctor," a physician is credited with premising that disease is something real and formidable, and that a denial of this reality constitutes a lie. His readers are then instructed how to lie so persistently that one human mind thoroughly believing in the reality of disease will be able to force another human mind, also thoroughly believing in the reality of disease, to admit that it is not sick. By this process this doctor would endeavor to bring health out of the impossible situation illustrated by Jesus when he said, "If Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?" In brief, he would have the human mind cure that of which the human mind is already the cause. The physician admits that the suggestive, hypnotic method which he espouses is capable of both good and evil; that the same mental method which is employed to cure one person may be employed to kill another person, but St. James has said, "Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?"

The Scriptures tell us that God made all that was made, and that it was "very good." In other words, God's work was done; nothing could be added to or taken from His creation, which was spiritual, perfect, complete. Sin, disease, and death certainly are not good; therefore they were not made by God; and if God did not make them, they do not really exist, since He made all that was made. It was to the operation of divine law underlying this metaphysical process of reducing sin, disease, and death to their native nothingness, and substituting in consciousness the idea of God's allness, that Jesus referred when he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." It is the identical method of healing which Mrs. Eddy has taught the world for over forty years in the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
