action? Jesus said: "Destroy this temple [body], and
in three days I [Mind] will raise it up;" and he did this
for tired humanity's reassurance.
(Inexhaustible divine Love)
Is it not a species of infidelity to believe that so great
a work as the Messiah's was done for himself or for God,
who needed no help from Jesus' example to
preserve the eternal harmony? But mortals
did need this help, and Jesus pointed the way for them.
Divine Love always has met and always will meet every
human need. It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated
the divine power to heal only for a select number
or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and
in every hour, divine Love supplies all good.
(Reason and Science)
The miracle of grace is no miracle to Love. Jesus
demonstrated the inability of corporeality, as well as the
infinite ability of Spirit, thus helping erring
human sense to flee from its own convictions
and seek safety in divine Science. Reason, rightly directed,
serves to correct the errors of corporeal sense; but
sin, sickness, and death will seem real (even as the experiences
of the sleeping dream seem real) until the Science
of man's eternal harmony breaks their illusion with
the unbroken reality of scientific being.
Which of these two theories concerning man are you
ready to accept? One is the mortal testimony, changing,
dying, unreal. The other is the eternal and real evidence,
bearing Truth's signet, its lap piled high with immortal
Our Master cast out devils (evils) and healed the sick.
It should be said of his followers also, that they cast fear
and all evil out of themselves and others and heal the sick.
