     “And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod, and Cain knew his wife,” etc. This second fabulous creation originated man first in dust, woman in a rib, and the rest of humanity in an egg. Up to that no mention was made of another woman save Eve, the mother of Cain. Eve, in the Hebrew, signifies beginning, and the question is naturally suggested, whence came the wife of Cain? This, however, is unimportant in the evolution of matter whereby Intelligence and man are supposed to be developed, subject to propagation, growth, and depth.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st, ed., p.259)

Adam, made of dust, was not the image or likeness of God, Spirit; therefore partaking of “knowledge” never lost his first estate, but was the result of it. Man, originating in God, never fell into sin or death; he is forever happy, harmonious, and immortal, inheriting this birthright alone from Spirit. The so-called man that is sinning, sick, and dying, is not man, but a dream of Life, and Intelligence in matter; “dust to dust,” nothingness.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st, ed., p.259)

     What would we say of the musician whose harmony produced discord? Science gets right these knotty points, and renders to God the things that are His. We learn error by its results. Sickness, sin and death are the fruits of error; Truth gives harmony and immortality; thus Wisdom adjusted it, and “Thou shalt die” was not spoken in vain of what purports to be Life, Substance and Intelligence in matter, God in man, and Soul in body.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st, ed., p.258-259)

The Prophet Isaiah is recorded to have said, “God creates peace and he makes evil”; but turn to Jeremiah, and you find this contradicted. Jesus, also, takes the opposite grounds for the basis of his demonstration, showing that God casts out sin, sickness, and death, instead of creating them.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st, ed., p.258)

“I have gotten a man from the Lord,” was a falsehood, from the beginning; for this man was a foul murderer, and Truth and Love never created hatred and sin; supreme harmony never produced the Adam and his progeny; that which is not God, or His idea, is not only evil and mortal, but unreal, yea illusion. A wrong version of the scriptures, has hidden their Truth.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p.258)

Realize for yourself that there is nothing but God and harmony. We must go to the “patient” strong in that under- standing and if they do not respond, we must seek for the error that holds, find where the lie is, and expose and destroy it. Since rebuke and compassion are one, know that com- passion antidotes.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Oakes, Richard, Lessons of the Seventh Day, p.165)
