John 7:14-17
14 #Now about the midst of the
feast Jesus went up into the temple,
and taught.
15 And the Jews marvelled, saying,
How knoweth this man letters, having
never learned?
16 Jesus answered them, and said,
My doctrine is not mine, but his that
sent me.
17 If any man will do his will, he
shall know of the doctrine, whether it
be of God, or whether I speak of
John 8:31,32
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him, If ye continue
in my word, then are ye my disciples
32 And ye shall know the truth, and
the truth shall make you free.
John 12:46
46 I am come a light into the
world, that whosoever believeth on me
should not abide in darkness.
John 13:17
17 If ye know these things, happy
are ye if ye do them.

25:13-19 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist


Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist
The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality. 

Christ Healing (1)

In tender mercy, Spirit sped 
A loyal ray 
To rouse the living, wake the dead, 
And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious.

(Effective triumph)
Jesus taught the way of Life by demonstration, that we may
understand how this divine Principle heals the sick, casts out
error, and triumphs over death. Jesus presented the ideal of God
better than could any man whose origin was less spiritual. By his
obedience to God, he demonstrated more spiritually than all others
the Principle of being.

26:28-32 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

(Proof in practice)
Our Master taught no mere theory, doctrine, or belief. It was
the divine Principle of all real being which he taught and
practised. His proof of Christianity was no form or system of
religion and worship, but Christian Science, working out the
harmony of Life and Love.

28:9 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

(Help and hindrance)
While respecting all that is good in the Church or out of it,
one's consecration to Christ is more on the ground of
demonstration than of profession. In conscience, we cannot hold
to beliefs outgrown; and by understanding more of the divine
Principle of the deathless Christ, we are enabled to heal the sick
and to triumph over sin.

40:25 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

(Service and worship)
Our heavenly Father, divine Love, demands that all men should
follow the example of our Master and his apostles and not merely
worship his personality. It is sad that the phrase divine
service has come so generally to mean public worship instead of
daily deeds.
