"The plea of Christian Science"

The plea of Christian Science cannot truthfully be denied, for the Science which interprets Truth has no intelligent opponent. On page 430 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy tells us that she presents to her readers "an allegory in which the plea of Christian Science heals the sick." Regardless of any opposing evidence put forward through the physical senses, and cognizable only by these false witnesses against Truth, the Christian Scientist unflinchingly upholds the plea of Christian Science when he is faced with some mental, moral, or physical discord. Even though it prove to be a long siege, he unwaveringly upholds the plea of Christian Science versus error, the invisible harmony in place of the seemingly visible discord; and the truth which he upholds in consciousness in turn upholds him in his righteous purpose.

A judge in court sets himself to sift false evidence from correct evidence in each case presented to him for adjudication. He exercises constant discrimination and is on guard against deception and self-deception. When fictitious evidence is presented against the defendant, this evidence, being proved false, has no further weight with judge and jury, and the defendant ceases to fear it.

Turning to a higher aspect of the subject, the Christian must acknowledge to himself that the evidence of sickness, sin, and death, being foreign to God and man, is false evidence and he must discredit it.
