How Christianity lost its element of Healing

History repeats itself, tomorrow grows out of today; But heaven's favors are formidable, they are calls to higher duties—not discharge from care; and whoso builds on less than an immortal basis, builds on sandMatt 7:24 ¶Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matt 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. Matt 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: Matt 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Luke 6:46 ¶And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Luke 6:47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: Luke 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. Luke 6:49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. . We have asked in our selfishness to wait until the age advances to a more practical and Spiritual Christianity As Written: christianity before proclaiming the modus of Christian As Written: christian Healing; but our answer is, then there were no cross to be taken upMatt 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me is not worthy of me. Matt 16:24 ¶Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Matt 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Mark 8:34 ¶And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. Luke 9:23 ¶And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. Luke 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. , and less need of publishing the good news. A classic has said at thirty man suspects himself a fool; knows it at forty, and reforms his plan; at fifty chides his infamous delay, and pushes his prudent purpose to resolve. The difference in religions is—that one religion has a more spiritual base and tendency than an other and the religion nearest right is that one. The genius of Christianity As Written: christianity is works more than words, a calm and steadfast communion with God—a tumult on earth, religious factions and prejudices arrayed against it the synagogues as of old closed upon it, while it tabernacles with the most High—reasons with the storm, hurls the thunderbolt of Truth, stills the tempest of error; scourged and condemned at every footstep it advances calm and grand, afterwords to be pardoned and adopted, but never seen amid the smoke of battle. Every Christian As Written: christian needs to be a hero; for centuries to come he will go from the world's battlefield weary of earth and ready for heaven. The Christianity As Written: christianity that shall bring back its own essential and lost element of Healing is founded on a Principle and not a person and is known by its fruitsMatt 7:15 ¶Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matt 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Matt 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Matt 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Matt 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Matt 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. . Over eighteen centuries ago the advent of a babeEditorial Note: Jesus Christ stamped a new impress on history Mother clasp thy nestling tenderly, rear thine offspring wisely, for thou knowest not when the mantle of Christ’s As Written: christs presence shall fall upon thine own dear one. When the child As Written: chid Jesus was born, all the nations of the earth known at that period, were in subjection to the government of Rome. The Atlantic Ocean As Written: ocean was an unexplored sea; The Indies had but a fabulous existence. The MediterraneanAs Written:Mediterranean sea then the largest body of water known upon the globe, was but a Roman lake. Around the Medeterranean shores were clustered the thronged provinces, As Written: prvinces, and majestic cities, that gave Rome the palm of dynasties. This Empire of the Caesars, was invested with power and fame, that no modern republic, empire, or kingdom, has ever eclipsed A few years prior to the birth of Jesus, Julius As Written: Julias Caesar perished in the senate chamber at Rome, pierced by the dagger of Brutus. At the time Jesus' history commenced, Octavius As Written: Octavus Caesar (surnamed Augustus or the august because of his humanity) was monarch of the world, Rome was then the world, and Caesar was the governor of Rome; he could do what he pleased with the property, the liberty and the lives, of more than three hundred millions of people comprising the Roman Empire. Such power no mortal ever swayed before; Such power no mortal will ever sway again. In the main, Augustus Caesar, was a good man, (if goodness may be weighed in the ballance of Paganism). Little dreamed that Emperor, enthroned in his gorgeous palace on the capitoline hill, that a babe slumbering in a manger at Bethlehem an obscure hamlet in the province of AsyriaEditorial Note: Assyria was a kingdom of Northern Mesopotamia, centered on the Tigris River, and located in what is now northern Iraq, southeastern Turkey, northeastern Syria, and some of northwestern Iran., was more than his compeer; that a babe whose infant wailings blent with the bleating of the goat and the lowing of the kine was to establish an empire, before which the power of the Caesar'sEditorial Note: Caesars must dwindle into insignificance What a contrast between the power of Truth and a ScienceEditorial Note: Christian Science, and the power of knowledge obtained from the senses, and from wealth and fame, . Jesus sought to bring to light the understanding of the kingdom of heaven the reign of harmony that exists between God and man. He knew the dominion of God had not been overthrown that there was no monarch equal to this. He also knew that the kingdom of heaven is the empire of Spirit wherein matter cannot molest or make afraid; and the spirit of the simple prayr, let thy kingdom come on earthMatt 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Luke 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. and the understanding of the supremacy of Spirit—was His basis of healing. This spiritual element that sought As Written: saught its own and healed the sick, uttered itself also in the ten commandmentsEx 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying, Ex 20:2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Ex 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Ex 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Ex 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; Ex 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Ex 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Ex 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Ex 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: Ex 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: Ex 20:11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Ex 20:12 ¶Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. Ex 20:13 Thou shalt not kill. Ex 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery. Ex 20:15 Thou shalt not steal. Ex 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Ex 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. , and the sermon on the MtMatt 5:1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: Matt 5:2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, Matt 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matt 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Matt 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matt 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Matt 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Matt 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Matt 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Matt 5:13 ¶Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Matt 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matt 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Matt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matt 5:17 ¶Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matt 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:21 ¶Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: Matt 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Matt 5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee; Matt 5:24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Matt 5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Matt 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing. Matt 5:27 ¶Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: Matt 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matt 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. Matt 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. Matt 5:31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: Matt 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Matt 5:33 ¶Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: Matt 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Matt 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Matt 5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. Matt 5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. Matt 5:38 ¶Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: Matt 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. Matt 5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. Matt 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Matt 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Matt 5:43 ¶Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. Matt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matt 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matt 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? Matt 5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Matt 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matt 6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Matt 6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matt 6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: Matt 6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. Matt 6:5 ¶And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matt 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Matt 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Matt 6:8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. Matt 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Matt 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Matt 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread. Matt 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matt 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matt 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: Matt 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt 6:16 ¶Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matt 6:17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; Matt 6:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. Matt 6:19 ¶Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: Matt 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: Matt 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matt 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matt 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Matt 6:24 ¶No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and
mammon.
Matt 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Matt 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matt 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? Matt 6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: Matt 6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Matt 6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Matt 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? Matt 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. Matt 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matt 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matt 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. Matt 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Matt 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matt 7:4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Matt 7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. Matt 7:6 ¶Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Matt 7:7 ¶Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Matt 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matt 7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Matt 7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? Matt 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Matt 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matt 7:13 ¶Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Matt 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matt 7:15 ¶Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matt 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Matt 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Matt 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Matt 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Matt 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt 7:21 ¶Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matt 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? Matt 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matt 7:24 ¶Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matt 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. Matt 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: Matt 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matt 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: Matt 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
, those beatitudes that read, "blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth,Matt 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. " blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for so persecuted they the prophetsMatt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Matt 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. . The power of Truth is seen in the power of mind over matter as when Jesus said "stretch forth thine hand and be whole" and he stretched it forth, and it became whole as the other.Matt 12:9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue: Matt 12:10 ¶And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. Matt 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? Matt 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. Matt 12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. Mark 3:1 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. Mark 3:2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. Mark 3:3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. Mark 3:4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. Mark 3:5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. Luke 6:6 And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered. Luke 6:7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. Luke 6:8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. Luke 6:9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it? Luke 6:10 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other. " Unlike the government of the Caesar's was this demonstration of Soul over sense; it annuled the law material with the higher law that is Spiritual; this government is established by immortal mind, by the unerring Intelligence, Life, Truth and Love that we name God. In the proportion that Science disappeared from christianity, did its demonstration in healing the sick disappear; and Science was lost in proportion to the disappearing of the spiritual Principle of christianity and the acceptance of a person in its stead; which person must forgive sin, whereas the Principle of Christianity As Written: christianity destroys sin and leaves nothing to forgive. The Empire Jesus strove to establish in the Christian As Written: christian era, rested on a Spiritual basis. Caesar's government had a material foundation, it was based on human laws that were oppressive and unlike the divine law that requires us to "love thy neighbor as thyself,Lev 19:18 ¶Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord. Matt 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Matt 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Matt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Matt 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. Matt 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Matt 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Mark 12:28 ¶And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Luke 10:25 ¶And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? Luke 10:26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Luke 10:28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. " hence that saying of Jesus, to "render unto Caesar As Written: Cesar the things that are Cesar'sEditorial Note: Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God'sMatt 22:15 ¶Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. Matt 22:16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. Matt 22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cæsar, or not? Matt 22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Matt 22:19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. Matt 22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? Matt 22:21 They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto C
æsar the things which are C
æsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
Matt 22:22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way. Mark 12:13 ¶And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the
Herodians, to catch him in his words.
Mark 12:14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Cæsar, or not? Mark 12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it. Mark 12:16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Cæsar’s. Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Cæsar the things that are C
æsar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
Luke 20:20 And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor. Luke 20:21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly: Luke 20:22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Cæsar, or no? Luke 20:23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me? Luke 20:24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Cæsar’s. Luke 20:25 And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which be C
æsar’s, and unto God the things which be God’s.
Luke 20:26 And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.
" In other words never to blend Spiritual law with what is termed material law. Because Caesar owned the coin that bore his inscription, Jesus said, let him have it, it belongs to him. Thus it is that God owns the man that bears His image and likeness, and let God have him, he belongs to Spirit and not to matter. But Jesus never claimed for God Anatomy, Physiology and Hygiene, those belong to Caesar, they are man-made laws that bear the stamp of mortal mind and the image of matter, and have not the inscription of Spirit; therefore they belong not to God. To blend the Spiritual law with the material, to say that God requires a large proportion of our thoughts given to what we shall eat, to what we shall drink, and to what clothes we shall wear, and that God decides we shall be clad in flannel to prevent rheumatism, or in soft raiment to imitate royalty—is a mistake. Shall we adhere to Graham's dieteticsEditorial Note: This is a reference to dietetic and health practices promoted by Sylvester Graham (1794 - 1851), who advocated frequent bathing, abstaining from meat and alcohol, and eating foods made of whole grain bread. sooner than to Paul’s As Written: Pauls ethics— Paul said "eat what is set before you" asking no questions for conscience sakeI Cor 10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. ? We shall go on to lose ScienceEditorial Note: Christian Science and the spiritual element that heals the sick so long as we admit there are two As Written: tw legitimate governments, so long as we say that God is the author of a law requiring the muscles to move by degrees and gently in case of the belief of a lame wrist, or that the the sick of fever must come up gradually from his weakness or the consumptiveEditorial Note: This refers to someone having the disease, consumption, known today as tuberculosis. must die and so on, for thise so-called As Written: socalled laws of matter are in direct opposition to Jesus example, and the law of Spirit. Caesar's government was overthrown, based as it was on physics and political econemy, whose foundations are matter, even the beliefs of mortal mind. But the government that Jesus supported cannot be overthrown based as it is on divine economy, on Metaphysics or Immortal Mind. Friends, which of these two governments do we acknowledge, and conform to? is it the power of Mind over matter? or the power of matter over mind? do we say that mind can digest a heavy meal? or that our food can master mind, can soporizeEditorial Note: This is a variant on the word, “soporific,” which means to induce drowsiness or sleep. a man and gastric As Written: gastic juice can suspend the mind's faculties and stupify a man The science of Christianity presents an infinite field of inquiry. Ancient and modern, sacred and profane history have given their theories of Life, making Life dual, having a twofold nature, a sort of composite of two opposite qualities, one of which is death; but Life contains naught that can produce death, and death never resulted in Life Let us briefly consider the two opposite statements of Life viz. That Life is Spirit, inorganic and eternal . 2nd As Written: 2ond that Life is organic and mortal .

There are certain self-evident As Written: selfevident propositions, this is one of them; that if two statements of Life are opposites and one of the m is Truth, the other one is error. We know it is true that Life is Spirit, then it is equally true that Life depends not on organization or matter. Jesus said I am the way the Truth and LifeJohn 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. ; the ‘I" refered to was Spirit and not matter, the way was science, and Truth was gained by approximat ing to Spirit, and the demonstration of the power of Spirit over sin, sickness and death was science This demonstration is is reached only through Science for Life is a Principle and not a person, and it is through science alone that we arrive at the understanding of a Principle to demonstrate it

The scriptures inform us that God is Spirit; we all can see that matter is the direct opposite of Spirit, both in substance, Life and Intelligence, therefore matter is the opposite of God. The ancient schools of philosophy admitted this, and were even nearer science than our modern schools. Again, the scripture saith, God is Truth, therefore as matter is the opposite of Spirit, God, it must As Written: mus t be error; the scripture also saith, that God is Life; then if matter is the opposite of God, and hath no part with God it cannot have Life Through the microscope of mind matter even disappears; and those opposites of Spirit that by common consent belong to matter, namely, mortality, sickness, and sin, disappear with it. Life is Spirit, and Spirit is Intelligence, and because Life is Spirit it cannot be matter; and because Spirit is Intelligence, it can not dwell in nonintelligence or matter; the one corresponds with light, the other with darkness, and Jesus said, what fellowship hath light with darkness? or God with Belial?Editorial Note: This is not a statement by Jesus, but is a reference to II Corinthians 6:14,15. Let us briefly examine history and see if the religion that has for its foundations material rites, creeds and a personal God on the one hand—and Anatomy, Materia Medica, physiology, etc. on the other, has produced the good results that Jesus and his followers demonstrated healing the sick and casting out error. A religion that insists on a law of matter, that defies the law of Spirit and that God is the author of this law. that believes in a necessity for Sin, and that God has sacrificed the innocent for the guilty to appease his own wrath; and to forgive sin that deserves to be punished, and which will never cease until self destroyed through suffering. A religion, that would have God the author of sin, sickness and death by being either the author of a man, or of a law that has produced these discords, and then concludes that God can neither destroy the law nor the discord. A religion that has waded through the blood of christians to sustain its creeds, that shut the door of the synagogues on Jesus and sought to silence his teachings by tortures and death, that supported its Pharasaism As Written: Pharaseeism by rites and ceremonies, while omitting the weightier matters of the lawMatt 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Justice and mercy. This religion of the Jewish As Written: jewish church has persecuted every advanced step of Christianity As Written: christianity that draws us nearer Christ, Truth, and farther from uncharitableness and the machinery of ecclesiastical forms and aristocracies. This religion, built on profession more than proof, quotes the words without imitating the deeds of prophet and apostle, and has shut out the spiritual element of Christian As Written: christian healing. In periods past it became a barbarism from which it began to emerge, not until the reformation when the intrepid Luther burned the papal bullEditorial Note: A papal bull is a formal proclamation issued by the pope. and the more gentle MalancthonEditorial Note: Philip Melanchthon (1497-1560) was a collaborator with Martin Luther and an intellectual leader of the Lutheran Reformation. said, old Adam is too strong for young MalancthonEditorial Note: There is likely referring to an anecdote about Melanchthon. As the story goes, he tried to branch out from academia to evangelize the people of Wittenberg with the new ideas of the Protestant Reformation. When Luther asked him how it went, Melanchthon replied, “old Adam was too strong for young Philip.”. Religion will be reformed and purified in proportion to the spirit it achieves, for "the letter killeth but the spirit maketh aliveII Cor 3:4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: II Cor 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; II Cor 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. ". I thank God for the little leaven that is left, and hope it will leaven the whole lump,I Cor 5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? I Cor 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Gal 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. for the little we have of true christianity is better than none, but I wish we had more of it. I thank the church for all the good it has done, the household hymn, and family altar, for all the tender and true motives they have inspired But more than they all, I love the gospel of Christ, and shall keep the faith committed unto me, and fight the good fight until I have finished my courseII Tim 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. II Tim 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: .

Over the three years of the public ministry of our MasterEditorial Note: Jesus Christ the veil As Written: vail of centuries hath not fallen, His words, and more especially his deeds, live in our hearts and on the illumined pages of history. The ancient dynasties of Media, Assyria,As Written:Asyria, and Babylon have had their histories, but their records are lost in remoteness they are but dim spectres of the past Thebes, Palmira, and Nineveh As Written: Ninevah have perished from the pages of the present—their pride and opulence are no more, even their ruins have faded away their rocky sepulchers are swept clean by the winds of centuries. and [END ERASE] The footfall of the antiquarian is not heard in their deserted halls; their palatial mansions are desolate, and for their pristine grandeur or present decay who careth now The history of Jesus is immortal, because of its science, because of the Truth it bore to mankind, and the demonstration it left for our example. The arrest, trial, and crucifixion of the meek Nazareen are too painful, too cruel and unjust in their material history, for us to retrace, and the spiritual sense of that history is too remote from mortal thought, to be urged upon it at present. The Spirituality of Jesus' teachings and the materiality of the Rabbinical As Written: Rabonical doctrines, As Written: doctorines, harmonized not; Jesus could not if he would, and would not if he could cease to declare the whole Truth; his mission was to establish the reign of Metaphysics over physics, to spiritualize thought and thus to correct human action, yea to lift the load of materiality from the age, that was crushing out humanity and making monsters instead of men. Hence his conflict with the age and the nature of that conflict, it was the spiritual at war with the material, and the material trying to kill the spiritual, it was mortal mind trying to kill immortal mind through matter, and failing to do this. Jesus understood Metaphysics better than to suppose mind dies he knew that immortal mind is not in mortality, and that Mind produces all the phenomena of Life hence his immortal saying, "though you destroy this body yet will I build it againJohn 2:18 ¶Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. John 2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body. John 2:22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. . Jesus had students, and these students; casting out error and healing the sick emulated the example of their teacher. They also drank the cup he had presented them they partook of his cup of sorrows that won immortal triumphs and they drank this cup well knowing their reward; thus in memory of their Master, they passed on, until from the stake, the scaffold or the cross, they passed to a crown. The missionary labors of Paul, the Roman orator, his fervid addresses in which he expounded to them the great Truth that Jesus demonstrated, casting out error and healing the sick, were fraught with peril, visited with the severest persecution, and yet Paul labored on, traversing the mountainous districts of Asia Minor, As Written: Mina, or tarrying at Ephesus to destroy the trade in idols, and so demolish the temple erected at the head of the harbor for the worship of the Goddess As Written: Godess Diana. His labors were not lost; to today, As Written: day, over the track of centuries, they are yielding the proof Metaphysical that Spirit is supreme and we read today those immortal words that uttered his triumph Oh! death where is thy sting Oh! grave where is thy victoryI Cor 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? . That Roman orator and Christian As Written: christian hero passed on to glory, but he passed not cheerlessly through the dark portals and shadow of death, but joyously through the understanding of Life; thus it was that prophet and Apostle passed beyond the vision of their period and the senses lost sight of them in Soul. The Spirit of Christianity As Written: christianity that demonstrated the Science of Christianity As Written: christianity casting out error and healing the sick, was fast waning at that period 62 years after the appearing of Jesus, its spiritual element was becoming beclouded with materialism. The inventions of mortal and material mind were creating religions, almost wholly material, and Rome was ravished by bloody EmperororsEditorial Note: Emperors; Nero, Domitian, As Written: Dometian, Trajan, and Diocletian Nero refusing to eat unless the shrieks of tortured christians regaled As Written: regailed his repast; but cringing in cowardice he fled at last in the garb of a woman to thrust a dagger in his own breast. Dometian who ordered the Evangelist John to be thrown into a chaldron of boiling oil, at length fell beneath the dagger of an assassin, after a career of crime and misery Trajan who gave the pious Ignatius to beasts for the entertainment of his people, died in a state of extreme dejection, and so relieved the earth of his guilty presence. The Emperor Vespasian, As Written: Vespasion, by his humane deeds, lifted somewhat the pall from that period; one of his remarks is noteworthy; at the close of a day in which little opportunity had occur red for doing good, he exclaimed; "I have lost a day."Editorial Note: This quote is attributed to Vespasian’s son, Titus. Among Rome's last conquests was the domain of Zenobia when the captive Queen robed in the gorgeous attire of the orient followed in foot the triumphant car of Aurelius drawn by four stags. The history of pagan Rome down to the fifth century and on through the dark ages closed forever the glory of Rome. Of the different schools of Philosophy it may be said their teachings were in part based on Science, but never wholly; they blended good and evil, Spirit and matter, making God the remote cause of both good and evil. Hearing of a Pythigorian who was a professor of ethics Justin Martyr went to this man and informed him he wished to become one of his disciples, “very well" he replied," have you studied music, Astronony, and Geometry, or do you think it possible to understand aught of that which leads to bliss, without having mastered the Sciences—that disengage the Soul from sensible objects—rendering it a fit habitation for the Intelligences? What a material road to heaven, harmony of Spirit ! What a divergence from Jesus' teachings "except ye become as a little childMatt 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Matt 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, Matt 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matt 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. ie (divested of material dependence) ye shall in no wise enter into the spiritual kingdom. On Justin Martyr's confessing he had not studied those branches, he was dismissed. Alas! for such material christianity, of what avail is geometry to the poor inebriate struggling with temptation? or the martyrdom of Jesus, to heal the sick Our philosophy and religion lack Science, or they they would never support the theory that Spirit , that is Infinite, is within the finite; therefore that God, is made subject to matter, and expect from such error of premises to destroy error. The Ethics or religion that rests on aught but a demonstrable Principle that may be understood by all, and found to destroy sin and sickness, is not proved right, but only believed to be right, such theories teach Lords many, and gods manyI Cor 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) I Cor 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. ; presupposing that God is fragmentary, that there is here and there a little of the Infinite, as if the Infinite could be a finite at times; they do not teach one God, one Spirit and that one is the unerring Infinite and eternal Intelligence that cannot enter finite man, but can and does govern all things from dust to Deity What we name matter are forms of mortal thought that appear just as the thought represents them, even as in our night dreams; these forms originate in mortal mind, they are classified, individualized, and are given their names by this mind. Immortal mind or God made the tree a spiritual idea, mortal mind or material man believes the tree a product of matter. Spirit, God, creates all things Spiritually, and through Immortal mind, material man, materializes in thought Gods creation, and produces a tree through his belief that matter does it instead of Spirit governing the result; he thinks that the seed produces the tree, but God knows that mind produces all things; and whether through a belief that matter does it or the understanding that Spirit hath done it, mind is the parent of all. Let us remember that the Spiritual creation is harmonious and Immortal whereas the material is inharmonious and mortal; let us also remember that harmony is the reality of being and discord the unreal. There is an advantage in understanding this, for we get rid of the discord by so doing. This is our Scientific discovery by which we learnd that all error can be destroyed; denying it all prestige or power, reality or authority, from God, we get the better of of error and it walks off for error is a coward before Truth. The beautiful ignorance and wisdom of Jesus, his ignorance of material theorems and understanding of the Spiritual has put to shame the proudest systems of ancient and modern ethics. The arrogant Rabbi and devoted stoic, failed to demonstrate Spiritual life as taught and demonstrated by Jesus. Plato and Socrates As Written: Socratees afforded beautiful examples of Pagan Philosophy. Confucius was perhaps as near right as any one of them, but the Science of application or the Metaphysical method whereby Jesus cast out error and healed the sick, was not really understood by any one of them. Christian healing was practiced for three centuries after the crucifixion of Jesus. Does the calculation astronomical, or the infinites after the method of the calculus compare with the "peace be still to the waves?Matt 8:23 ¶And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. Matt 8:24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. Matt 8:25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. Matt 8:26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matt 8:27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him! Mark 4:35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. Mark 4:36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. Mark 4:37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. Mark 4:38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark 4:40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? Mark 4:41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? Luke 8:22 ¶Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. Luke 8:23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. Luke 8:24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. Luke 8:25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him. that spiritual power that healed the leper and opened the eyes of the blind? that saith to matter thou art nothingness, and to Spirit thou art Substance, Life and Intelligence? that saith to the discords of matter, the discords of the senses, to pain and sin, thou art not the realities of existence for thou art not the Life that is Spirit and all Life is Spirit. The infinite Principle and its infinite idea harmonize and fill imnensity leaving no space for matter

The Scriptures declare God is all and in all, then if God is all and God is Spirit, there is no matter. When refering to Metaphysics ByronEditorial Note: George Gordon Byron (1788-1824), more commonly known by his title, “Lord Byron,” was one of the most flamboyant of the Romantic poets. in a fit of humor wrote— Bishop BurkleyEditorial Note: Bishop Berkeley, George Berkeley (1685-1753), was an Irish philosopher who was best known for his idealist philosophy, which holds that reality exists only in the minds of those perceiving it. says what is mind? no matter, and what is matter? never mindEditorial Note: This is likely a reference to a verse from Byron’s satirical epic poem Don Juan. It reads: “When Bishop Berkeley said ‘there was no matter,’ And proved it– ’twas no matter what he said:”.. Metaphysics are proved after the rule of mathematics, in that the reversed statement of the rule proves the rule, for example, if four times five are twenty, five times four are twenty thus by the reversed rule of Metaphysics we learn that if matter is not in Spirit, Spirit is not in matter, The learned Dr. Young of EdingburgEditorial Note: Edinburgh, Scotland says God is the author of mind and of nothing else. In our researches into Metaphysics we have found neither evidence nor proof that Spirit creates matter, that good produces evil, that Immortality produces mortality, yea, that God, Spirit, produces matter any more than that God, , produces sin. Mind is the generic term for all things. We classify Mind as the Immortal Mind, or Understanding and mortal mind or belief. The Immortal mind gives identity, outline, form and coloring to all that is real The three kingdoms, mineral, vegetable and animal comprise the different identities in Mind; that which Spirit evolves. What is termed mortal mind or belief hath its suppositional three kingdoms of error, and they are sin, sickness and death. each of which is a kingdom divided against itself that cannot standMatt 12:22 ¶Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. Matt 12:23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? Matt 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. Matt 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: Matt 12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? Matt 12:27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. Matt 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Mark 3:22 ¶And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath
Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
Mark 3:23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. Luke 11:14 ¶And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered. Luke 11:15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. Luke 11:16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. Luke 11:18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. Luke 11:19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. Luke 11:20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: Luke 11:22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. Luke 11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. Luke 11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Luke 11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Luke 11:27 ¶And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. Luke 11:29 ¶And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. Luke 11:30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. Luke 11:31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. Luke 11:32 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. Luke 11:33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. Luke 11:34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Luke 11:35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. Luke 11:36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. Luke 11:37 ¶And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat. Luke 11:38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. Luke 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. Luke 11:40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also? Luke 11:41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you. Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Luke 11:43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. Luke 11:44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. Luke 11:45 ¶Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also. Luke 11:46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. Luke 11:47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. Luke 11:48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. Luke 11:53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: Luke 11:54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

Mark 6:32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. Mark 6:33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.

Mark 6:35 And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed: Mark 6:36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat. Mark 6:37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?

John 6:7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. John 6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him, John 6:9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

John 6:11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. John 6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. John 6:13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. John 6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

without meal or monad; and he was not a mesmerist, the mesmerist works from the basis of mortal mind or error, Jesus worked from the basis of Metaphysics of Immortal mind and Truth. That mind is structural, or that it enters the objects it produces is but a dream of mortal mind from which dream it is awakening hour by hour, day by day, and year by year; This dream is troubled it being governed by mortal mind and is the same in the waking as in the sleeping hours; the only difference in our dreams is, that the dream with unclosed eyes is more universal and lasts longer, than the dream with closed eyes. We learn from metaphysics that mortal or material life is a dream that goes on with both open and closed eyes; the dream with closed lids but illustrates the waking hours; both dreams are the history of thoughts and beliefs whose joys and sorrows are not the realities of existence. We no more see, hear, or feel, through the agency of matter in our waking hours, than in the dreams of sleep. In the morning it is familiar in memory that we shook the hand of a friend in our dream, or perhaps was sick and helpless, or perchance explored some far off country, traveled wearily and sighed for home; or by another freak of belief, basked in the beauties of the tropics. Now had we not wakened from this dream it would have remained to us the reality of existence instead of a dream. Two dreams constitute what is termed material existence or life and intelligence in matter; the longer dream we call the real existence—the shorter one—the unreal or dream; but one state is not more real than the other. The pain we feel in our night dream we say is in the body, and yet that body rests unconscious upon the bed and we are far away from it perhaps in our dream and have our body with us and are saying my body suffers. Now do you not perceive that the body material is but an embod iment of mortal belief; Friends, have any of you a dream that you are sick? then let the dream pass waken, and you will find your body not affected by it; even as the sleeper wakens to find his body on the bed unconscious of all he suffered.

She would later identify this experience as the point of her “discovery” of Christian Science.. This great truth of Metaphysics has for many years been my pillar of fireEx 13:21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: Ex 13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people. , lighting the gloom it hath made the yoke easy, As Written: easey, and the burden lightMatt 11:28 ¶Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

He made important contributions to the field of natural science particularly through his work on glaciers as well as living and fossil fishes.

How Christianity lost its element of Healing

History repeats itself, tomorrow grows out of today; But heaven's favors are formidable, they are calls to higher duties—not discharge from care; and whoso builds on less than an immortal basis, builds on sandMatt 7:24 ¶Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matt 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. Matt 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: Matt 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Luke 6:46 ¶And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Luke 6:47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: Luke 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. Luke 6:49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. . We have asked in our selfishness to wait until the age advances to a more practical and Spiritual christianity Corrected: Christianity before proclaiming the modus of christian Corrected: Christian Healing; but our answer is, then there were no cross to be taken upMatt 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me is not worthy of me. Matt 16:24 ¶Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Matt 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Mark 8:34 ¶And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. Luke 9:23 ¶And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. Luke 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. , and less need of publishing the good news. A classic has said at thirty man suspects himself a fool; knows it at forty, and reforms his plan; at fifty chides his infamous delay, and pushes his prudent purpose to resolve. The difference in religions is—that one religion has a more spiritual base and tendency than an other and the religion nearest right is that one. The genius of christianity Corrected: Christianity is works more than words, a calm and steadfast communion with God—a tumult on earth, religious factions and prejudices arrayed against it the synagogues as of old closed upon it, while it tabernacles with the most High—reasons with the storm, hurls the thunderbolt of Truth, stills the tempest of error; scourged and condemned at every footstep it advances calm and grand, afterwords to be pardoned and adopted, but never seen amid the smoke of battle. Every christian Corrected: Christian needs to be a hero; for centuries to come he will go from the world's battlefield weary of earth and ready for heaven. Such is The christianity Corrected: Christianity that shall bring back its own essential and lost element of Healing is founded on a Principle and not a person and is known by its fruitsMatt 7:15 ¶Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matt 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Matt 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Matt 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Matt 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Matt 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. To day as over eighteen centuries ago Science and Truth conquers matter heals the sick and will finally destroy all sin and death.

At the time Jesus' history commenced, Octavus Corrected: Octavius Caesar (surnamed Augustus or the august because of his humanity) was monarch of the world, Rome was then the world, and Caesar was the governor of Rome; he could do what he pleased with the property, the liberty and the lives, of more than three hundred millions of people comprising the Roman Empire. Such power no mortal ever swayed before; Such power no mortal will ever sway again. In the main, Augustus Caesar, was a good man, (if goodness may be weighed in the ballance of Paganism). Little dreamed that Emperor, enthroned in his gorgeous palace on the capitoline hill, that a babe slumbering in a manger at Bethlehem an obscure hamlet in the province of AsyriaEditorial Note: Assyria was a kingdom of Northern Mesopotamia, centered on the Tigris River, and located in what is now northern Iraq, southeastern Turkey, northeastern Syria, and some of northwestern Iran., was more than his compeer; that a babe whose infant wailings blent with the bleating of the goat and the lowing of the kine was to establish an empire, before which the power of the Caesar'sEditorial Note: Caesars must dwindle into insignificance What a contrast between the power of Truth and and ScienceEditorial Note: Christian Science, and the power of knowledge obtained from the senses, and from wealth and fame, to establish dominion. Jesus sought to bring to light the understanding of the kingdom of heaven the reign of harmony that exists between God and man. He knew the dominion of God had not been overthrown that there was no monarch equal to this. He also knew that that the kingdom of heaven is the empire of Spirit wherein matter cannot molest or make afraid; and the spirit of the simple prayr, let thy kingdom come on earthMatt 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Luke 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. and the understanding of the supremacy of Spirit—was His basis of healing. This spiritual element of Spirit, that saught Corrected: sought its own and that healed the sick, uttered itself also in the ten commandmentsEx 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying, Ex 20:2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Ex 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Ex 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Ex 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; Ex 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Ex 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Ex 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Ex 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: Ex 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: Ex 20:11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Ex 20:12 ¶Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. Ex 20:13 Thou shalt not kill. Ex 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery. Ex 20:15 Thou shalt not steal. Ex 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Ex 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. , and in the sermon on the MtMatt 5:1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: Matt 5:2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, Matt 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matt 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Matt 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matt 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Matt 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Matt 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Matt 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Matt 5:13 ¶Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Matt 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matt 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Matt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matt 5:17 ¶Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matt 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:21 ¶Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: Matt 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Matt 5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee; Matt 5:24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Matt 5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Matt 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing. Matt 5:27 ¶Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: Matt 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matt 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. Matt 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. Matt 5:31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: Matt 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Matt 5:33 ¶Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: Matt 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Matt 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Matt 5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. Matt 5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. Matt 5:38 ¶Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: Matt 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. Matt 5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. Matt 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Matt 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Matt 5:43 ¶Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. Matt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matt 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matt 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? Matt 5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Matt 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matt 6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Matt 6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matt 6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: Matt 6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. Matt 6:5 ¶And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matt 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Matt 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Matt 6:8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. Matt 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Matt 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Matt 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread. Matt 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matt 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matt 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: Matt 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt 6:16 ¶Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matt 6:17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; Matt 6:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. Matt 6:19 ¶Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: Matt 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: Matt 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matt 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matt 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Matt 6:24 ¶No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and
mammon.
Matt 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Matt 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matt 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? Matt 6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: Matt 6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Matt 6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Matt 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? Matt 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. Matt 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matt 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matt 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. Matt 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Matt 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matt 7:4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Matt 7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. Matt 7:6 ¶Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Matt 7:7 ¶Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Matt 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matt 7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Matt 7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? Matt 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Matt 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matt 7:13 ¶Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Matt 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matt 7:15 ¶Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matt 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Matt 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Matt 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Matt 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Matt 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt 7:21 ¶Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matt 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? Matt 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matt 7:24 ¶Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matt 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. Matt 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: Matt 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matt 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: Matt 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
, those beatitudes that read, "blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth,Matt 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. " blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for so persecuted they the prophetsMatt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Matt 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. . It was also demonstrated by The power of Truth is seen in the power of mind over matter as when Jesus said "stretch forth thine hand and be whole" and he stretched it forth, and it became whole as the other.Matt 12:9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue: Matt 12:10 ¶And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. Matt 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? Matt 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. Matt 12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. Mark 3:1 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. Mark 3:2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. Mark 3:3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. Mark 3:4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. Mark 3:5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. Luke 6:6 And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered. Luke 6:7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. Luke 6:8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. Luke 6:9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it? Luke 6:10 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other. " Unlike the government of the Caesar's was this demonstration of Soul over sense; it annulled the law material with the higher law that is Spiritual; this was the government is established by immortal mind, by the unerring Intelligence, or Life, Truth and Love that we name God. In the proportion that Science was lost disappeared from christianity, did its demonstration in healing the sick disappear; and Science was lost in proportion to the disappearing of the spiritual Principle of christianity and the acceptance of a person in its stead; which person must forgive sin, whereas the Principle of christianity Corrected: Christianity destroys sin and leaves nothing to forgive. The Empire Jesus strove to establish in the christian Corrected: Christian era, rested on a Spiritual basis. Caesar's government had a material foundation, it was based on human laws that were oppressive and unlike the divine law that requires us to "love thy neighbor as thyself,Lev 19:18 ¶Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord. Matt 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Matt 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Matt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Matt 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. Matt 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Matt 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Mark 12:28 ¶And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Luke 10:25 ¶And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? Luke 10:26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Luke 10:28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. " hence that saying of Jesus, to "render unto Cesar Corrected: Caesar the things that are Cesar'sEditorial Note: Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God'sMatt 22:15 ¶Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. Matt 22:16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. Matt 22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cæsar, or not? Matt 22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Matt 22:19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. Matt 22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? Matt 22:21 They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto C
æsar the things which are C
æsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
Matt 22:22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way. Mark 12:13 ¶And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the
Herodians, to catch him in his words.
Mark 12:14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Cæsar, or not? Mark 12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it. Mark 12:16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Cæsar’s. Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Cæsar the things that are C
æsar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
Luke 20:20 And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor. Luke 20:21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly: Luke 20:22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Cæsar, or no? Luke 20:23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me? Luke 20:24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Cæsar’s. Luke 20:25 And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which be C
æsar’s, and unto God the things which be God’s.
Luke 20:26 And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.
" In other words never to blend Spiritual law with what is termed material law. Because Caesar owned the coin that bore his inscription, Jesus said, let him have it, it belongs to him. Thus it is that God owns the man that bears His inscription image and likeness, and let God have him, he belongs to Spirit and not to matter. But Jesus never claimed for God Anatomy, Physiology and Hygiene, those belong to Caesar, they are man-made laws they that bear the stamp of mortal mind and the image of matter, they and have not the inscription of Spirit; therefore they belong not to God. To blend the Spiritual law with the material, to say that God requires a large proportion of our thoughts given to what we shall eat, to what we shall drink, and to what clothes we shall wear, and that God decides we shall be clad in flannel to prevent rheumatism, or in soft raiment to imitate royalty—is a mistake.

Caesar's government was overthrown, based as it was on physics and political econemy, whose foundations are matter, even the beliefs of mortal mind. But the government that Jesus supported cannot be overthrown based as it is on divine economy, on Metaphysics or Immortal Mind. Friends, which of these two governments do we acknowledge, and conform to? is it the power of Mind over matter? or the power of matter over mind? do we say that mind can digest a heavy meal? or that our food can master mind, that it can soporizeEditorial Note: This is a variant on the word, “soporific,” which means to induce drowsiness or sleep. a man and gastic Corrected: gastric juice can suspend the mind's faculties and stupify a man The science of Christianity presents an infinite field of inquiry. Ancient and modern, sacred and profane history have given their theories of Life, making Life dual, having a twofold nature, a sort of composite of two opposite qualities, one of which is death; but Life contains naught that can never produced death, and death never resulted in Life Let us briefly consider the two opposite statements of Life viz. namely [?]  Unclear or illegible  That Life is Spirit, inorganic and and eternal infinite, and again. 2ond Corrected: 2nd that Life is organic and mortal finite.

There are certain selfevident Corrected: self-evident propositions, this is one of them; that if there are two opposite statements of Life are opposites and one of these m statements is Truth, the other one is error. We know it is true that Life is Spirit, then it is equally true that Life depends not on organization or matter. Jesus said I am the way the Truth and LifeJohn 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. ; the ‘I" refered to was Spirit and not matter, the way [?]  Unclear or illegible  was science, and gained this Truth was gained by approximate ing to Spirit, and the demonstration of the power of Spirit over what is termed matter sin, sickness and death was science This demonstration could be is is reached only through Science for Life is a Principle and not a person, and it is through [?]  Unclear or illegible  science alone that we arrive at the understanding of a Principle so as to demonstrate it

The scriptures inform us that God is Spirit; now we all can see that matter is the direct opposite of Spirit, both in substance, Life and Intelligence, therefore matter is the opposite of God. The ancient schools of philosophy admitted this, and were even nearer science than our modern schools. Again, the scripture saith, God is Truth, therefore as matter is the opposite of Spirit, God, it mus Corrected: must [?]  Unclear or illegible  t be error; the scripture also saith, that God is Life; then if matter is the opposite of God, it and hath no part of with God it and cannot have Life Seen Through the microscope of mind matter even disappears; and those opposites of Spirit that by common consent belong to matter, namely, mortality, sickness, and sin, disappear with it. Life is Spirit, and Spirit is Intelligence, and because Life is Spirit it cannot be matter; and because Spirit is Intelligence, it can not dwell in nonintelligence or matter; the one corresponds with is compared to light, the other with to darkness, and Jesus said, what fellowship hath light with darkness? or God with Belial?Editorial Note: This is not a statement by Jesus, but is a reference to II Corinthians 6:14,15. Let us briefly examine the history of the past and present and see if the religion that has for its foundations material rites, creeds and a personal God on the one hand—and Anatomy, Materia Medica, physiology, etc. on the other, has produced the good results results of the christianity Corrected: Christianity that Jesus and his followers demonstrated healing the sick and casting out devils, error. A religion that insists on a law of matter, that defies the power law of Spirit and that God is the author of this law. that believes in the a necessity for Sin, and that God has sacrificed the innocent for the guilty to appease his own wrath; and to forgive sin that deserves to be punished, and which will never cease until self destroyed through suffering. A religion, that would have God the author of sin, sickness and death by being either the author of a man, or of a law that has produced these discords, and then concludes that God can neither destroy the law nor the discord. A religion that has waded through the blood of christians to sustain its creeds, that shut the door of the [?]  Unclear or illegible  synagogues on Jesus and sought to silence his teachings by tortures and death, that supported its Pharaseeism Corrected: Pharasaism by rites and ceremonies, while omitting the weightier matters of the lawMatt 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Justice and mercy. This religion of the jewish Corrected: Jewish church has persecuted every advanced step of christianity Corrected: Christianity that draws us nearer to Christ, Truth, and farther from uncharitableness and the machinery of ecclesiastical forms and aristocracies. This religion, built on profession more than proof, quotes the words without imitating the deeds of prophet and apostle, and has shut out the spiritual element of christian Corrected: Christian healing. In periods past it became a barbarism from which it began to emerge, not until the reformation when the intrepid Luther burned the papal bullEditorial Note: A papal bull is a formal proclamation issued by the pope. and the more gentle MalancthonEditorial Note: Philip Melanchthon (1497-1560) was a collaborator with Martin Luther and an intellectual leader of the Lutheran Reformation. said, old Adam is too strong for young MalancthonEditorial Note: There is likely referring to an anecdote about Melanchthon. As the story goes, he tried to branch out from academia to evangelize the people of Wittenberg with the new ideas of the Protestant Reformation. When Luther asked him how it went, Melanchthon replied, “old Adam was too strong for young Philip.”. Religion will be reformed and purified in proportion to the spirit it achieves, for "the letter killeth but the spirit maketh aliveII Cor 3:4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: II Cor 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; II Cor 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

I Cor 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Gal 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. for the little we have of true christianity is better than none, but I wish we had more of it. I thank the church for all the good it has done, the household hymn, and family altar, for all the tender and true motives they have inspired But more than they all, I love the gospel of Christ, and shall keep the faith committed unto me, and fight the good fight until I have finished my courseII Tim 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

Over the three years of the public ministry of our MasterEditorial Note: Jesus Christ the vail Corrected: veil of centuries hath not fallen, His words, and more especially his deeds, live in our hearts and on the in the illumined pages of history. The ancient dynasties of Media, Asyria,Corrected:Assyria, and Babylon have had their histories, but their records are lost in remoteness they are but dim spectres of the past what hath been Thebes, Palmira, and Ninevah Corrected: Nineveh have perished from the pages of the present—their pride and opulence are no more, even their ruins have faded away away their rocky sepulchers are are swept clean by the winds of centuries. and [END ERASE] The footfall of the antiquarian is not heard in their deserted halls; their palatial mansions are desolate, and for their present pristine grandeur or present decay who careth now The history of Jesus is immortal, because of its science, because of the Truth it bore to mankind, and the demonstration it left for our example. The arrest, trial, and crucifixion of the meek Nazareen Jesus are too painful, too cruel and unjust in their material history, for us to retrace, and the spiritual sense of that history is too remote from mortal thought, to be urged upon it at present. The Spirituality of Jesus' teachings and the materiality of the Rabonical Corrected: Rabbinical doctorines, Corrected: doctrines, harmonized not; Jesus could not if he would, and would not if he could cease to declare the whole Truth; his mission was to establish the reign of Metaphysics over physics, to spiritualize thought and thus and to correct human action, yea to lift the load of materiality from the age, that was crushing out humanity and making monsters instead of men. Hence his conflict with the age and the nature of that conflict, it was the spiritual at war with the material, and the material trying to kill the spiritual, it was mortal mind trying to kill immortal mind through matter, and failing to do this. Jesus understood Metaphysics [?]  Unclear or illegible  better than to suppose mind dies [?]  Unclear or illegible  he knew that immortal mind is not in [?]  Unclear or illegible  mortality, and that Mind Spirit produces all the phenomena of Life hence that his immortal saying, "though you destroy this body yet will I build it againJohn 2:18 ¶Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. John 2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body. John 2:22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. . Jesus had students, and these students; casting out error and healing the sick emulated the example of their teacher. They also drank the cup he had presented them they partook of his cup of sorrows that won immortal triumphs and they drank this cup well knowing [?]  Unclear or illegible  their reward; thus in memory of their Master, they passed on, until from the stake, the scaffold or the cross, they passed to a crown. The missionary labors of Paul, the Roman orator, his fervid addresses in which he expounded to them the great Truth that Jesus demonstrated, casting out error and healing the sick, were fraught with peril, visited attended with the severest persecution, and yet Paul he labored on, traversing the mountainous districts of Asia Mina, Corrected: Minor, or tarrying at Ephesus to destroy the trade in idols, and and so demolish to demolish the temple erected at the head of the harbor for the worship of the Godess Corrected: Goddess Diana. His labors were not lost; to day, Corrected: today, over the track of centuries, they are yielding the proof Metaphysical that Spirit is supreme of the supremacy of Spirit over ages as he knew when uttering those [?]  Unclear or illegible  and we read today those immortal words that uttered his triumph Oh! death where is thy sting Oh! grave where is thy victoryI Cor 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? . That Roman orator and christian Corrected: Christian hero passed on to glory, but he passed not cheerlessly not through the dark portals and shadow of death, but joyously on through the understanding of Life; thus it was that prophet and Apostle he passed beyond their vision of their period and the senses lost sight of them in Soul. The Spirit of christianity Corrected: Christianity that demonstrated the Science of christianity Corrected: Christianity by casting out error and healing the sick, was fast waning at that period 62 years after the [?]  Unclear or illegible  appearing of Jesus, its the spiritual element was becoming beclouded with materialism. The inventions of mortal or and material mind were creating religions, almost wholly material, and Rome was ravished by the bloody EmperororsEditorial Note: Emperors; Nero, Dometian, Corrected: Domitian, Trajan, and Diocletian Nero refusing to eat unless the shrieks of the tortured christians regailed Corrected: regaled his repast; but cringing [?]  Unclear or illegible  in cowardice he fled at last in the garb of a woman and to thrust a dagger in his own breast. Dometian who ordered the loving Evangelist John to be thrown into a chaldron of boiling oil, at length fell beneath the dagger of an assassin, after a career of crime and misery Trajan who gave the pious Ignatius to beasts for the entertainment of his people, died in a state of extreme dejection, and so relieved the earth of his guilty presence. The Emperor Vespasion, Corrected: Vespasian, by his humane deeds, lifted somewhat the pall from that period; one of his remarks is noteworthy; at the close of a day in which little opportunity had occur ed red for doing good, he exclaimed; "I have lost a day."Editorial Note: This quote is attributed to Vespasian’s son, Titus. Among Rome's last conquests was the domain of Zenobia in which that when the captive Queen robed in the gorgeous attire of the orient followed in foot the triumphant car of Aurelius drawn by four stags. The history of pagan Rome down to the fifth century and on through the dark ages closed forever the glory of Rome. Of the different schools of pagan Philosophy it may be said their teachings were in part based on Science, but never wholly; they blended good and evil, Spirit and matter, [?]  Unclear or illegible  making and made God the remote cause author of of both good and evil. Hearing of a Pythigorian who was a professor of ethics Justin Martyr went to this man and informed him he wished to become one of his disciples, “very well" he replied," have you studied music, Astronony, and Geometry, or do you think it possible to understand aught of that which leads to bliss, without having mastered the Sciences—that disengage the Soul from sensible objects—rendering it a fit habitation for the Intelligences? What a material road to heaven, harmony of Spirit Spirit! What a divergence from Jesus' teachings "except ye become as a little childMatt 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Matt 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, Matt 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matt 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. ie (divested of material dependence) ye shall in no wise enter into the spiritual kingdom. On Justin Martyr's confessing he had not studied those branches, he was dismissed. Alas! for such material christianity, of what avail is geometry to the poor inebriate struggling with temptation? or the martyrdom of Jesus, to heal the sick Our philosophy and religion lack Science, or they they would never support the theory that Spirit God, that is Infinite, is within the finite; therefore that God, is that Spirit, is made subject to matter, and expect from such error of premises to destroy error. The Ethics or religion that rests on aught but a demonstrable Principle that may be understood by all, and found to destroy sin and sickness, is not proved right, but only believed to be right, such theories they teach Lords many, and gods manyI Cor 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) I Cor 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. ; presupposing that God is fragmentary, that there is here and there a little of the Infinite, as if the Infinite could be a finite at times; they do not teach one God, one Spirit and that one is the unerring Infinite and eternal Intelligence that cannot enter finite man, but can and does govern all things from dust to Deity What is we name d matter are the forms of mortal thought that appear just as the thought represents them, even as in our night dreams; these forms originate in mortal mind, they are classified, individualized, and are given their names by this mind. Immortal mind or God made the tree a spiritual idea, mortal mind or material man believes the tree a product of matter. Spirit, God, creates all things Spiritually, and through Immortal mind, material man, materializes in thought Gods creation, and produces a tree through his belief that of matter as a seed does it instead of Spirit as Mind governing the result; he thinks that the seed produces the tree, but God knows that mind produces all things; and whether it be through a belief that matter does it or the understanding that Spirit hath done it, mind is the parent of all. Let us remember that the Spiritual creation is harmonious and Immortal whereas and the material is inharmonious and mortal; and let us also remember that harmony is the reality of being and discord is the unreal. There is an advantage in understanding this, for we get rid of the discord by so doing. This is our Scientific discovery by which we learnd that all error can be destroyed; denying it all prestige or power, reality or authority, from God, we get the better of it of error and it walks off for error is a coward before Truth. The beautiful ignorance and wisdom of Jesus, his ignorance of material theorems and understanding of the Spiritual has put to shame the proudest systems of ancient and modern ethics. The arrogant Rabbi and devoted stoic, failed to demonstrate Spiritual life as taught and demonstrated by Jesus. Plato and Socratees Corrected: Socrates afforded were beautiful examples of Pagan Philosophy. Confucius was perhaps as near right as any one of them, but the Science of application or the Metaphysical simple method whereby Jesus cast out error and healed the sick, was not really understood by any one of them. Christian healing was practiced for three centuries after the crucifixion of Jesus. Does the calculation astronomical, or the infinites after the method s of the calculus compare with the "peace be still to the waves?Matt 8:23 ¶And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. Matt 8:24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. Matt 8:25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. Matt 8:26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matt 8:27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him! Mark 4:35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. Mark 4:36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. Mark 4:37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. Mark 4:38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark 4:40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? Mark 4:41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? Luke 8:22 ¶Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. Luke 8:23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. Luke 8:24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. Luke 8:25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him. and that spiritual power that healed the leper and opened the eyes of the blind? that saith to matter thou art nothingness, and to Spirit thou art Substance, Life and Intelligence? that saith to the discords of matter, the discords of the senses, to pain and sin, thou art not the realities of existence for thou art not the Life that is Spirit and all Life is Spirit. The infinite Principle and its infinite idea harmonize and fill imnensity leaving no space for matter

The Scriptures declare that God is all and in all, then if God is all and God is Spirit, there is no matter. God is not transcendentalism!

It reads: “When Bishop Berkeley said ‘there was no matter,’ And proved it– ’twas no matter what he said:”.. Metaphysics are proved after the rule of mathematics, in that the reversed statement of the rule proves the rule, for example, if four times five are twenty, five times four are twenty thus by the reversed rule of Metaphysics we learn that thus if matter is not in Spirit, then Spirit is not in matter, I say because God is Spirit, and there is nothing in Spirit out of which to make matter that there is no matter. The learned Dr. Young of EdingburgEditorial Note: Edinburgh, Scotland says God is the author of mind and of nothing else. In our researches into Metaphysics we have found no neither evidence and nor no proof that Spirit creates matter, that good produces evil, that Immortality produces mortality, yea, that God, Spirit, produces matter any more than that God, Spirit, produces sin. Mind is the generic term for all things. We classify Mind as the The classification of mind Immortal Mind, or Understanding and the mortal mind or belief. The Immortal mind gives identity, outline, form and coloring to all that is real The three kingdoms, namely mineral, vegetable and animal comprise the different identities of in Mind; that which Spirit evolves. What [?]  Unclear or illegible  is termed mortal mind or belief hath its suppositional three kingdoms of error, and they are sin, sickness and death. and each one of which is a kingdom divided against itself that cannot standMatt 12:22 ¶Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. Matt 12:23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? Matt 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. Matt 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: Matt 12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? Matt 12:27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. Matt 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Mark 3:22 ¶And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath
Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
Mark 3:23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. Luke 11:14 ¶And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered. Luke 11:15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. Luke 11:16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. Luke 11:18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. Luke 11:19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. Luke 11:20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: Luke 11:22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. Luke 11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. Luke 11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Luke 11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Luke 11:27 ¶And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. Luke 11:29 ¶And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. Luke 11:30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. Luke 11:31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. Luke 11:32 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. Luke 11:33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. Luke 11:34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Luke 11:35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. Luke 11:36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. Luke 11:37 ¶And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat. Luke 11:38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. Luke 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. Luke 11:40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also? Luke 11:41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you. Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Luke 11:43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. Luke 11:44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. Luke 11:45 ¶Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also. Luke 11:46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. Luke 11:47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. Luke 11:48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. Luke 11:53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: Luke 11:54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

without meal or monad; and he Jesus was not a mesmerist, the mesmerist works from the basis of mortal mind or error, Jesus worked from the basis of Metaphysics of Immortal mind and Truth. That mind is structural, or that it enters the objects it produces is but a dream of mortal mind from which dream it is awakening hour by hour, day by day, and year by year; His This dream is troubled for it it being a troubled dream and is governed by mortal mind and is the same in the waking as in the sleeping hours; the only difference in our dreams is, that the dream with unclosed eyes is more universal and lasts longer, than the dream with closed eyes. We learn from metaphysics that mortal or material life is a myth an illusion yea a dream that goes on with both open and closed eyes; the dream with closed lids but illustrates the waking hours; both dreams are the history of those thoughts and beliefs whose joys and sorrows are not the realities of existence. We no more see, hear, or feel, through the agency of matter in our waking hours, than in the dreams of sleep. In the morning it is familiar in memory that we shook the hand of a friend in our dream, or perhaps or was sick and helpless, or perchance explored some far off country, traveled wearily and sighed for home; or by another freak of belief, basked in the beauties of the tropics. Now had we not wakened from this dream of sleep it would have remained to us the reality of existence instead of a dream. Two dreams constitute what is termed material existence or life and intelligence in matter; the longer dream we call the real existence—the shorter one—the unreal or dream; but one state is not more real than the other. The pain we feel in or pleasure we feel of our night dream we say is in the body, and yet that body rests unconscious upon the bed as matter sees it and has no pain; but you and we are far away from it perhaps in y our dream and have y our body with you us and are saying my body suffers. Now do you not perceive that the body material is but an embod y iment of mortal belief; whereas the spiritual body is an embodiment Friends, have any of you a dream that you are sick? then let the dream pass waken, and you will find your body was not affected by it; even as the sleeper wakens to find his body on the bed unconscious of all he suffered. This divine ray from ScienceEditorial Note: Christian Science fell as a sunbeam athwart my path in a dispairing Corrected: despairing moment, its light broke in upon my dream, and it awakened me and I found to find my body unharmedEditorial Note: This is probably a reference to Mary Baker Eddy’s experience of sudden abatement of symptoms of a fall on the ice in Lynn, Massachusetts in February 1866, while reading the Bible. She would later identify this experience as the point of her “discovery” of Christian Science.. This great truth of Metaphysics has for many years been the my pillar of fireEx 13:21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: Ex 13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people. , lighting the gloom it hath made the yoke easey, Corrected: easy, and the burden lightMatt 11:28 ¶Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

To this great question, what is mind,—and where is it?—Professors TindalEditorial Note: John Tyndall (1820-1893) was a prominent Irish physicist. He made discoveries related to magnetism, infrared radiation and the physical properties of air. He also wrote a number of books and gave lectures to make science more accessible to the general public. He supported Darwin’s theory of evolution and a separation between science and religion, along with friend and contemporary Thomas Henry Huxley., DarwinEditorial Note: Charles Darwin (1809-1882) was an English biologist, naturalist and geologist. He is most well known for his theory of evolution, published in his 1859 work, On the Origin of Species. and HuxlyEditorial Note: Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895) was an English biologist. Although he was initially slow to accept some of Darwin’s ideas, he became one of the staunchest advocates for Darwin’s theory of evolution, even calling himself “Darwin’s bulldog.” Huxley also made contributions to the field of comparative anatomy and was instrumental in developing scientific education in Britain. have taken the extreme material view the opposite view While they are arguing with all the eloquence of erudition and the support of the schollarly Corrected: scholarly attainments, that all is matter, we as a child at the feet of Truth have gained the opposite evidence in Metaphysics that all is mind. Mr. Darwin supports the theory that matter is self created, that is evolves itself therefore it follows, if God Spirit is a creator that there are two Gods. Professor AgassizEditorial Note: Louis Agassiz (1807-1873) was a Swiss–American biologist and geologist. He made important contributions to the field of natural science particularly through his work on glaciers as well as living and fossil fishes. Agassiz believed in a Divine Plan of God in nature and so rejected Darwin’s theory of evolution. brings forward the fact in natural history that one species cannot produce its opposite species and any partial apparent deviation from this rule is followed by a return to its the original species; therefore if man was once a monkey according to Mr. Darwin, he will again be a monkey according to Professor Agasiz Corrected: Agassiz The theory of transmigrationEditorial Note: Transmigration refers to the concept of the soul passing into another body after death, now more commonly called reincarnation. comforts the chinese Corrected: Chinese mother who gives her child the pleasant hope, that if he is a good boy he shall may in due time become a nice little bullock.

Matt 13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. Matt 13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? Matt 13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? Matt 13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
