Zero can't be multiplied

As Roger was getting ready for bed one evening, he told his mother, "My throat hurts. What if this becomes a cold, and I have to miss the parade tomorrow? I can't play my trombone with a cold, and the director is expecting me to be there."

Roger had attended a Christian Science Sunday School since the time he could walk and had learned there many wonderful truths from the Bible. One of the most important was about his relationship to God as God's son, as Christ Jesus taught. He had learned that this is a relationship of spiritual oneness with perfection that can be proved anytime, anywhere, through healing. Many times he himself had already proved this. He remembered severe cuts that had been quickly healed, a bad fall on his bike, an injured toe.
