The prophets of old looked for something higher than
the systems of their times; hence their foresight
of the new dispensation of Truth. But
they knew not what would be the precise nature of the
teaching and demonstration of God, divine Mind, in His
more infinite meanings, - the demonstration which was
to destroy sin, sickness, and death, establish the definition
of omnipotence, and maintain the Science of Spirit.
The pride of priesthood is the prince of this world. It
has nothing in Christ. Meekness and charity have divine
authority. Mortals think wickedly; consequently they
are wicked. They think sickly thoughts, and so become
sick. If sin makes sinners, Truth and Love alone can
unmake them. If a sense of disease produces suffering
and a sense of ease antidotes suffering, disease is mental,
not material. Hence the fact that the human mind alone
suffers, is sick, and that the divine Mind alone heals.
The life of Christ Jesus was not miraculous, but it was
indigenous to his spirituality, - the good soil wherein the
seed of Truth springs up and bears much fruit. Christ's
Christianity is the chain of scientific being reappearing
in all ages, maintaining its obvious correspondence with
the Scriptures and uniting all periods in the design of
God. Neither emasculation, illusion, nor insubordination
exists in divine Science.
Jesus instructed his disciples whereby to heal the sick
through Mind instead of matter. He knew that the philosophy,
Science, and proof of Christianity were in Truth,
casting out all inharmony.
