Christian Science Bible Lessons
- Section 4 -
The Christ was the Spirit which Jesus implied in his own
statements: "I am the way, the truth, and the life;" I and my
Father are one." This Christ, or divinity of the man Jesus, was
his divine nature, the godliness which animated him. Divine
Truth, Life, and Love gave Jesus authority over sin, sickness, and
death. His mission was to reveal the Science of celestial being,
to prove what God is and what He does for man.
560:10-19 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse
I have set forth Christian Science and its application to the
treatment of disease just as I have discovered them. I have
demonstrated through Mind the effects of Truth on the health,
longevity, and morals of men; and I have found nothing in ancient
or in modern systems on which to found my own, except the
teachings and demonstrations of our great Master and the lives of
prophets and apostles. The Bible has been my only authority. I
have had no other guide in "the straight and narrow way" of Truth.
127:9 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine
The terms Divine Science, Spiritual Science, Christ Science or
Christian Science, or Science alone, she employs interchangeably,
according to the requirements of the context. These synonymous
terms stand for everything relating to God, the infinite, supreme,
eternal Mind. It may be said, however, that the term Christian
Science relates especially to Science as applied to humanity.
Christian Science reveals God, not as the author of sin, sickness,
and death, but as divine Principle, Supreme Being, Mind, exempt
from all evil. It teaches that matter is the falsity, not the
fact, of existence; that nerves, brain, stomach, lungs, and so
forth, have - as matter - no intelligence, life, nor sensation.
