Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
4 - - Christian Science versus Spiritualism
Our Master easily read the thoughts of mankind, and
this insight better enabled him to direct those thoughts
aright; but what would be said at this period of an infidel
blasphemer who should hint that Jesus used his incisive
power injuriously? Our Master read mortal mind
on a scientific basis, that of the omnipresence of Mind.
An approximation of this discernment indicates spiritual
growth and union with the infinite capacities of the one
Mind. Jesus could injure no one by his Mind-reading.
The effect of his Mind was always to heal and to save,
and this is the only genuine Science of reading mortal
mind. His holy motives and aims were traduced
by the sinners of that period, as they
would be to-day if Jesus were personally present. Paul
said, "To be spiritually minded is life." We approach
God, or Life, in proportion to our spirituality, our fidelity
to Truth and Love; and in that ratio we know all
human need and are able to discern the thought of the
sick and the sinning for the purpose of healing them.
Error of any kind cannot hide from the law of God.
Whoever reaches this point of moral culture and goodness
cannot injure others, and must do them good. The
greater or lesser ability of a Christian Scientist to discern
thought scientifically, depends upon his genuine
spirituality. This kind of mind-reading is not clairvoyance,
but it is important to success in healing, and is one of the
special characteristics thereof.
