cause her to be carried away of the flood.  And the earth
helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and
swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his
mouth.


   Millions of unprejudiced minds - simple seekers for
Truth, weary wanderers, athirst in the desert - are waiting
and watching for rest and drink.  Give them a cup of
cold water in Christ's name, and never fear the consequences.
What if the old dragon should send forth a new
flood to drown the Christ-idea?  He can neither drown
your voice with its roar, nor again sink the world into the
deep waters of chaos and old night.  In this age the earth
will help the woman; the spiritual idea will be understood.
Those ready for the blessing you impart will give thanks.
The waters will be pacified, and Christ will command the
wave.
   When God heals the sick or the sinning, they should
know the great benefit which Mind has wrought.  They
should also know the great delusion of mortal mind, when
it makes them sick or sinful.  Many are willing to open

the eyes of the people to the power of good resident in
divine Mind, but they are not so willing to point out the
evil in human thought, and expose evil's hidden mental
ways of accomplishing iniquity.
   Why this backwardness, since exposure is necessary to
ensure the avoidance of the evil?  Because people like
you better when you tell them their virtues than when you
tell them their vices.  It requires the spirit of our blessed
Master to tell a man his faults, and so risk human displeasure
for the sake of doing right and benefiting our
race.  Who is telling mankind of the foe in ambush?  Is
the informer one who sees the foe?  If so, listen and be
wise.  Escape from evil, and designate those as unfaithful
stewards who have seen the danger and yet have given
no warning.
   At all times and under all circumstances, overcome evil
with good.  Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom
and the occasion for a victory over evil.  Clad in the
panoply of Love, human hatred cannot reach you.  The
cement of a higher humanity will unite all interests in the
one divinity.
