John 3:34,36
34 For he whom God hath sent
speaketh the words of God: for God
giveth not the Spirit by measure unto
him.
36 He that believeth on the Son
hath everlasting life: and he that
believeth not the Son shall not see
life; but the wrath of God abideth on
him.

In tender mercy, Spirit sped 
A loyal ray 
To rouse the living, wake the dead, 
And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious.

(Rebukes helpful)
As the individual ideal of Truth, Christ Jesus came to rebuke
rabbinical error and all sin, sickness, and death, - to point out
the way of Truth and Life. This ideal was demonstrated throughout
the whole earthly career of Jesus, showing the difference between
the offspring of Soul and of material sense, of Truth and of
error.

The Way, the Truth, the Life - His word - 
Are here, and now 
Christ's silent healing, heaven heard, 
Crowns the pale brow. 

And forgive us our debts, 
as we forgive our debtors.

(Fatal premises)
We cannot bring out the practical proof of Christianity, which
Jesus required, while error seems as potent and real to us as
Truth, and while we make a personal devil and an anthropomorphic
God our starting-points, - especially if we consider Satan as a
being coequal in power with Deity, if not superior to Him. Because
such starting-points are neither spiritual nor scientific, they
cannot work out the Spirit-rule of Christian healing, which proves
the nothingness of error, discord, by demonstrating the
all-inclusiveness of harmonious Truth.

350:24 Chapter 11: Some Objections Answered

(The divine life-link)
"The Word was made flesh." Divine Truth must be known by its
effects on the body as well as on the mind, before the Science of
being can be demonstrated. Hence its embodiment in the incarnate
Jesus, - that life-link forming the connection through which the
real reaches the unreal, Soul rebukes sense, and Truth destroys
error.
