Text John 7.16

My doctrine is not mine but his that sent meJohn 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

1st What is the Theology of Christian Science?

Divine Natural philosophy and revelation & practice

What the philosophyAs Written:phil.? What the revelationAs Written:rev.

Its philosophy is natural in that Revealed in that it Systematizes the doctrineAs Written:doc of Bible reveals more of God than other religions have done because it has the science of Him, etc.

Honesty, meekness, mercy, purity, Truth, Love.

Is it infidelity, pantheism, Gnosticism, spiritualism

Text. My doctrine etcJohn 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. What mean? So much the world could contain the books that should give his meaningAs Written:mean.John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. Jesus a material man not from sense came his science

Scriptures We know this man we know who he is but when Christ cometh no man knoweth whence he is

Some said he is a good man others, Nay, he deceiveth the people

Jesus said the world hateth me because I testify of it that the works thereof are evil

The absence of right and the substitution of wrong in a single instance is a broken link in the chain of science
