"Truth is error's antidote"

"He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler," wrote the Psalmist; and Christ Jesus said, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." So the Hebrew seer and the Nazarene Prophet were agreed that if one should put his trust in Truth it would be his protection; yea, it would free him from whatever evil—error —might be binding him. Both were deeply conscious of the love of God and firmly assured of His immanence, and willingness and power to succor and to save.

Christian Science is bringing to men a wonderful sence of the presence of God and of His power to save and heal.

This is due to the fact that it is teaching them how rightly to regard Deity; for Christian Science shows God to be, not a finite though greatly magnified person, but the Being who is infinite Mind, infinite Truth—thus acknowledging that there is no truth outside of God, infinite Truth; that indeed naught but Truth and the ideas of Truth really exist. The unenlightened human mind believes otherwise, deeming evil or error to be real; but therein this so-called mind errs. This being so, the rule in the practice of Christian Science for the destruction of error is that which is set forth by Mrs. Eddy on page 346 "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." "We treat error," she writes, "through the understanding of Truth. because Truth is error's antidote."
