I Corinthians 15:48,50
48 As is the earthy, such are they
also that are earthy: and as is the
heavenly, such are they also that are
50 Now this I say, brethren, that
flesh and blood cannot inherit the
kingdom of God; neither doth
corruption inherit incorruption.

I John 2:15-17
15 Love not the world, neither the
things that are in the world. If any
man love the world, the love of the
Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh, and the lust
of the eyes, and the pride of life,
is not of the Father, but is of the
17 And the world passeth away, and
the lust thereof: but he that doeth
the will of God abideth for ever.

Treating the sick 

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

And forgive us our debts,

(Spirit the tangible)
Our Master declared that his material body was not spirit,
evidently considering it a mortal and material belief of flesh and
bones, whereas the Jews took a diametrically opposite view. To
Jesus, not materiality, but spirituality, was the reality of man's
existence, while to the rabbis the spiritual was the intangible and
uncertain, if not the unreal.

353:13-18 Chapter 11: Some Objections Answered

(Superstition obsolete)
The age has not wholly outlived the sense of ghostly beliefs.
It still holds them more or less. Time has not yet reached
eternity, immortality, complete reality. All the real is eternal.
Perfection underlies reality. Without perfection, nothing is
wholly real.

Christian Science Healing (2)

Forever present, bounteous, free, 
Christ comes in gloom; 
And aye, with grace towards you and me, 
For health makes room. 

Give us this day our daily bread.

(The infinitude of God)

spiritual idea, whose substance is in Mind, is eternal. The
offspring of God start not from matter or ephemeral dust.
