Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
1 - - Prayer
Jesus uncovered and rebuked sin before he cast it
out. Of a sick woman he said that Satan had bound
her, and to Peter he said, "Thou art an offence
unto me." He came teaching and
showing men how to destroy sin, sickness, and death.
He said of the fruitless tree, "[It] is hewn down."
It is believed by many that a certain magistrate,
who lived in the time of Jesus, left this record: "His
rebuke is fearful." The strong language of our Master
confirms this description.
The only civil sentence which he had for error was,
"Get thee behind me, Satan." Still stronger evidence
that Jesus' reproof was pointed and pungent is found
in his own words, - showing the necessity for such
forcible utterance, when he cast out devils and healed
the sick and sinning. The relinquishment of error deprives
material sense of its false claims.
