“What Manner of Man Is This?”


From the Bible

“We do live in the world, but we do not fight in the same way the world fights. We fight with weapons that are different from those the world uses. Our weapons have power from God that can destroy the enemy’s strong places.” (II Corinthians 10:3, 4, New Century Version)

“Let justice flow like a river, and let goodness flow like a never-ending stream.”

(Amos 5:24 New Century Version)

From “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures”

“One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfills the Scripture, ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself;’ annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry, — whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed.”

(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 340)

From “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures”

“The Bible contains the recipe for all healing. ‘The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.’ Sin and sickness are both healed by the same Principle. The tree is typical of man’s divine Principle, which is equal to every emergency, offering full salvation from sin, sickness, and death. Sin will submit to Christian Science when, in place of modes and forms, the power of God is understood and demonstrated in the healing of mortals, both mind and body. ‘Perfect Love casteth out fear.’”

(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 406)
