TRUTH.

- Section 3 -

 

I John 1:5,6
5 This then is the message which we
have heard of him, and declare unto
you, that God is light, and in him is
no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship
with him, and walk in darkness, we
lie, and do not the truth:
I John 4:4-6
4 Ye are of God, little children,
and have overcome them: because
greater is he that is in you, than he
that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore
speak they of the world, and the world
heareth them.
6 We are of God: he that knoweth
God heareth us; he that is not of God
heareth not us. Hereby know we the
spirit of truth, and the spirit of
error.

***
John 1:17
17 For the law was given by Moses,
but grace and truth came by Jesus
Christ.
John 14:6,15-17,26
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the
way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.
15 If ye love me, keep my
commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and
he shall give you another Comforter,
that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom
the world cannot receive, because it
seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for he dwelleth with
you, and shall be in you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the
Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send
in my name, he shall teach you all
things, and bring all things to your
remembrance, whatsoever I have said
unto you.

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(Materialistic challenge)
Materialistic hypotheses challenge metaphysics to meet in final
combat.

287:10-11,32 Chapter 10: Science of Being

(Divine allness)
In Science, Truth is divine, and the infinite God can have no
unlikeness.
(Error unveiled)
Truth cannot be contaminated by error. The statement that
Truth is real necessarily includes the correlated statement,
that error, Truth's unlikeness, is unreal.

288:29-1 Chapter 10: Science of Being

(The Christ-element)
The Christ-element in the Messiah made him the Way-shower, Truth
and Life.
The eternal Truth destroys what mortals seem to have learned
from error, and man's real existence as a child of God comes to
light.

For Christian Science brings to view
The great I Am,-
Omniscient power,- gleaming through
Mind, mother, man. 

And Love is reflected in love.

(Life eternal and present)
The Scriptures say, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God," showing that
Truth is the actual life of man; but mankind objects to making
this teaching practical.

(New Testament basis)
Our Master said, "But the Comforter . . . shall teach you all
things." When the Science of Christianity appears, it will lead
you into all truth. The Sermon on the Mount is the essence of
this Science, and the eternal life, not the death of Jesus, is its
outcome.
(Modern evangel)
Those, who are willing to leave their nets or to cast them on
the right side for Truth, have the opportunity now, as aforetime,
to learn and to practise Christian healing. The Scriptures
contain it. The spiritual import of the Word imparts this power.
But, as Paul says, "How shall they hear without a preacher? and
how shall they preach, except they be sent?" If sent, how shall
they preach, convert, and heal multitudes, except the people hear?

(Spirituality of Scripture)
The spiritual sense of truth must be gained before Truth can be
understood. This sense is assimilated only as we are honest,
unselfish, loving, and meek.
