John 5:1-3,5,8,9
1 After this there was a feast of
the Jews; and Jesus went up to
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the
sheep market a pool, which is called
in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having
five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of
impotent folk, of blind, halt,
withered, waiting for the moving of
the water.
5 And a certain man was there,
which had an infirmity thirty and
eight years.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take
up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made
whole, and took up his bed, and
walked: and on the same day was the

As in blest Palestina's hour, 
So in our age, 
'T is the same hand unfolds His power, 
And writes the page.

And lead us not into temptation,

(Mischievous imagination)
Sickness is neither imaginary nor unreal, - that is, to the
frightened, false sense of the patient. Sickness is more than
fancy; it is solid conviction. It is therefore to be dealt with
through right apprehension of the truth of being.

Truth versus error

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

Question 21. - Do the five corporeal senses constitute man?
ADAM = Life's counterfeit, which ultimates in death.


(Mind destroys all ills)
Disease is an experience of so-called mortal mind. It is fear
made manifest on the body. Christian Science takes away this
physical sense of discord, just as it removes any other sense of
moral or mental inharmony. That man is material, and that matter
suffers, - these propositions can only seem real and natural in
illusion. Any sense of soul in matter is not the reality of

400:20-28 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice


Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice
Divine Science understood and acknowledged. 

Christian Unity (1) 

For Christian Science brings to view
The great I Am,-
Omniscient power,- gleaming through
Mind, mother, man. 

And Love is reflected in love. 

Cardinal point 1 - Column 3 - Extended

(Mortal mind controlled)
When we remove disease by addressing the disturbed mind, giving
no heed to the body, we prove that thought alone creates the
suffering. Mortal mind rules all that is mortal. We see in the
body the images of this mind, even as in optics we see painted on
the retina the image which becomes visible to the senses. The
action of so-called mortal mind must be destroyed by the divine
Mind to bring out the harmony of being.
