Is there, after all, anything unreasonable in the doctrine...

Marysville (Calif.) Democrat

Is there, after all, anything unreasonable in the doctrine that disease, for example, is unreal? Every one tries to escape from or destroy it when it threatens him. If it were real, then it would be useless to try to avoid or overcome it; but every one, as a matter of fact, regards it as an outlaw and looks hopefully for the time when it will be banished.

The reason for this hope is that when we realize the creator is good we know that His creation must also be good, containing no element of evil or discord. "The only reality of sin, sickness, or death," as Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 472), "is the awful fact that unrealities seem real to human, erring belief, until God strips off their disguise."
