Truth Practiced

We read in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 174): "The thunder of Sinai and the Sermon on the Mount are pursuing and will overtake the ages, rebuking in their course all error and proclaiming the kingdom of heaven on earth. Truth is revealed. It needs only to be practised." In the hours when error, God's suppositional opposite, the great lie of evil, is striving for mastery over us, we should be awake to the stupendous fact that the kingdom of all harmony immorality,—of all good, is right here within us. Mrs. Eddy says in "Unity of Good," page 62: "This is the mystery of godliness—that God, good, is never absent, and there is none beside good. Mortals can understand this only as they reach the Life of good, and learn that there is no Life in evil."

The great spiritual fact remains that only the good is worth while and it alone is permanent and true. We can and must expect all good and we can and must prove all good. In Science and Health, page 330, Mrs. Eddy writes, "Evil is nothing, no thing, mind, nor power." It is absolutely impossible to know error, for error is without Principle to govern it, and the only name it can have is what mortal mind's own mesmeric thought bestows upon it.
