Genesis 2:16,17
16 And the Lord God commanded the
man, saying, Of every tree of the
garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil, thou shalt not eat
of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


***
Psalm 78:9,19,42
9 The children of Ephraim, being
armed, and carrying bows, turned back
in the day of battle.
19 Yea, they spake against God;
they said, Can God furnish a table in
the wilderness?
42 They remembered not his hand,
nor the day when he delivered them
from the enemy.

Make merriment on Christmas eves,

Thy kingdom is come,

(Fear and sickness identical)
There is to-day danger of repeating the offence of the Jews by
limiting the Holy One of Israel and asking: "Can God furnish a
table in the wilderness?" What cannot God do?

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee!

(The fruit forbidden)
The forbidden fruit of knowledge, against which wisdom warns
man, is the testimony of error, declaring existence to be at the
mercy of death, and good and evil to be capable of commingling.

(The lungs reformed)
If the body is diseased, this is but one of the beliefs of
mortal mind. Mortal man will be less mortal, when he learns that
matter never sustained existence and can never destroy God, who is
man's Life.
Correct material belief by spiritual understanding, and Spirit
will form you anew. You will never fear again except to offend
God, and you will never believe that heart or any portion of the
body can destroy you.

388:12-16,22-24 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice

(Sustenance spiritual)
Admit the common hypothesis that food is the nutriment of life,
and there follows the necessity for another admission in the
opposite direction, - that food has power to destroy Life, God,
through a deficiency or an excess, a quality or a quantity.
(God sustains man)
The fact is, food does not affect the absolute Life of man, and
this becomes self-evident, when we learn that God is our Life.

376:10 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice

(Insidious concepts)
The pallid invalid, whom you declare to be wasting away with
consumption of the blood, should be told that blood never gave
life and can never take it away, - that Life is Spirit, and that
there is more life and immortality in one good motive and act,
than in all the blood which ever flowed through mortal veins and
simulated a corporeal sense of life.

390:7 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice

(Ultimate harmony)
It is our ignorance of God, the divine Principle, which produces
apparent discord, and the right understanding of Him restores
harmony. Truth will at length compel us all to exchange the
pleasures and pains of sense for the joys of Soul.
