Is the sick man sinful above all others? No! but
so far as he is discordant, he is not the image of God.
Weary of their material beliefs, from which
comes so much suffering, invalids grow more
spiritual, as the error - or belief that life is in matter -
yields to the reality of spiritual Life.
The Science of Mind denies the error of sensation in
matter, and heals with Truth. Medical science treats
disease as though disease were real, therefore right, and
attempts to heal it with matter. If disease is right it is
wrong to heal it. Material methods are temporary, and
are not adapted to elevate mankind.
The governor is not subjected to the governed. In
Science man is governed by God, divine Principle, as
numbers are controlled and proved by His laws. Intelligence
does not originate in numbers, but is manifested
through them. The body does not include soul, but manifests
mortality, a false sense of soul. The delusion that
there is life in matter has no kinship with the Life supernal.
