- Section 4 -


John 14:6
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the
way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Revelation 12:1
1 And there appeared a great
wonder in heaven; a woman clothed
with the sun, and the moon under her
feet, and upon her head a crown of
twelve stars:

26:10 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.

(Christ's demonstration)
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


Chapter 16: Apocalypse
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

(Beyond  "The Way")

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my
works unto the end, to him will I give
power over the nations:
And I will give him the MORNING STAR. 

For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

(True estimate of God's messenger)
Heaven represents harmony, and divine Science interprets the
Principle of heavenly harmony. The great miracle, to human sense,
is divine Love, and the grand necessity of existence is to gain
the true idea of what constitutes the kingdom of heaven in man.
This goal is never reached while we hate our neighbor or entertain
a false estimate of anyone whom God has appointed to voice His
Word. Again, without a correct sense of its highest visible idea,
we can never understand the divine Principle.

126:22 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine


Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially. 

Christmas Eve (2)

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

Cardinal point 3 - Column 2 - Extended

(Biblical basis)
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

(Scientific terms)
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.
