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."
