"To divest thought of false trusts"

Present-day conditions offer great opportunities for proving practical the teachings of Christian Science. Economic instability, sin, sickness, and decrepitude are crying for recognition at the door of human thinking. In an effort to thwart these untoward conditions noteworthy institutions have been founded. Many individuals with a love of humanity in their hearts have given unstintingly of their time, energy, and finances that a better order of living might be attained by those in want. Granting that such charitable motives are commendable, and that suffering has been alleviated to some extent through these benevolences, the problems have continued to exist.

The woes of humanity began with the eating of "the tree of knowledge of good and evil," as recorded in the third chapter of Genesis. This false knowledge, which is opposed to God, good, has continued to hold men in bondage down through the ages, and until the discovery of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy mortals were unable to free themselves from its baneful effects.
