347 — WATCH that you realize that all effects which seem to come from evil, merely come from those who believe evil to be real, when it is not. It is said that Augusta Stetson threatened her students with malpractice, if they turned away from her as their teacher. She might have felt that this was legitimate because she actually never fulfilled this threat. Yet the threat made her a malpractitioner, since malpractice is mortal man’s belief in and fear of malpractice, and the effects follow this belief.
In Job we read that the thing we have greatly feared has come upon us. To induce fear either audibly or mentally is to bring forth the fruits of fear in disease. To do this makes the one responsible for the fear a malpractitioner.
