Deuteronomy 18:9-12
9 #When thou art come into the land
which the Lord thy God giveth thee,
thou shalt not learn to do after the
abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among
you any one that maketh his son or
his daughter to pass through the
fire, or that useth divination, or an
observer of times, or an enchanter,
or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter
with familiar spirits, or a wizard,
or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are
an abomination unto the Lord: and
because of these abominations the
Lord thy God doth drive them out from
before thee.

Acts 8:5-11
5 Then Philip went down to the city
of Samaria, and preached Christ unto
6 And the people with one accord
gave heed unto those things which
Philip spake, hearing and seeing the
miracles which he did.
7 For unclean spirits, crying with
loud voice, came out of many that were
possessed with them: and many taken
with palsies, and that were lame,
were healed.
8 And there was great joy in that
9 But there was a certain man,
called Simon, which beforetime in the
same city used sorcery, and bewitched
the people of Samaria, giving out
that himself was some great one:
10 To whom they all gave heed, from
the least to the greatest, saying,
This man is the great power of God.
11 And to him they had regard,
because that of long time he had
bewitched them with sorceries.

105:16-29 Chapter 5: Animal Magnetism Unmasked


Chapter 5: Animal Magnetism Unmasked
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.

Christmas Eve (1)

Thus Christ, eternal and divine, 
To celebrate 
As Truth demands, - this living Vine 
Ye demonstrate.

Thy kingdom come.

(Important decision)
When our laws eventually take cognizance of mental crime and no
longer apply legal rulings wholly to physical offences, these
words of Judge Parmenter of Boston will become historic: "I see no
reason why metaphysics is not as important to medicine as to
mechanics or mathematics."
(Evil let loose)
Whoever uses his developed mental powers like an escaped felon
to commit fresh atrocities as opportunity occurs is never safe.
God will arrest him. Divine justice will manacle him. His sins
will be millstones about his neck, weighing him down to the depths
of ignominy and death. The aggravation of error foretells its
doom, and confirms the ancient axiom: "Whom the gods would
destroy, they first make mad."

484:21 Chapter 14: Recapitulation


Chapter 14: Recapitulation
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

Truth versus error

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

Cardinal point 3 - Column 4 - Extended

Question 18. - Does Christian Science, or metaphysical healing, 
include medication, material hygiene, mesmerism,
hypnotism, theosophy, or spiritualism?
ADAM = A so-called man, whose origin, substance, and mind
are found to be the antipode of God, or Spirit.

(Animal magnetism error)
Mesmerism is mortal, material illusion. Animal magnetism is the
voluntary or involuntary action of error in all its forms; it is
the human antipode of divine Science. Science must triumph over
material sense, and Truth over error, thus putting an end to the
hypotheses involved in all false theories and practices.
