CHAPTER 6 - Science, Theology, Medicine
But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of
me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither
was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. - Paul.
The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and
hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. - Jesus.
(Christian Science discovered)
In the year 1866, I discovered the Christ Science or
divine laws of Life, Truth, and Love, and
named my discovery Christian Science. God
had been graciously preparing me during many
years for the reception of this final revelation of the absolute
divine Principle of scientific mental healing.
(Mission of Christian Science)
This apodictical Principle points to the revelation of
Immanuel, "God with us," - the sovereign ever-presence,
delivering the children of men from
every ill "that flesh is heir to." Through
Christian Science, religion and medicine are
inspired with a diviner nature and essence; fresh pinions
are given to faith and understanding, and thoughts acquaint
themselves intelligently with God.
(Discontent with life)
Feeling so perpetually the false consciousness that life
inheres in the body, yet remembering that in
reality God is our Life, we may well tremble
in the prospect of those days in which we must say, "I
have no pleasure in them."
