METAPHYSICAL SCIENCE, August,1876 -1

            God is Principle, Soul, Spirit, Life, intelligence, harmony. There is no other life or intelligence, and no harmony from any other source. No discord or harmony emanates therefrom, or exists therein, or thereby. Immortal man is of God, Soul, of immortality, and not of mortality, nor of mortal man. He is spiritual and in the likeness of God, yea, Godlike, and — embracing the eternal existence, or spirituality of all existence, of all God’s crea­tion — is the idea of God, the shadow, the image, the reflection, the sign that points to God.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.75)

One of the students whom I knew well, and with whom I often spoke was Judge Hanna. His devotion to our Leader was very real and deep. I knew him best during the years when he was editing the Christian Science Journal. We often spoke about his editorial work, and he told me that it was a far greater task than he had ever had in his law practice. Once Mrs. Eddy spoke to me about him when his name came up in a conversation we had. She said, “In the law everything is fixed and settled, but in Science the Truth is always fixed and it is animal magnetism that tries many avenues of approach. This gives the Judge so much to meet because he is so settled in his ways.”   (Chanfrau, Henrietta, Reminiscences of Mary Baker Eddy)

Jesus robbed error of its personality, which caused it to be self-destroyed.  The devil came out of the belief of personality and entered into the swine, the belief of animality causing self-destruction.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Carpenter, Gilbert, Fragments Gathered From Unpublished Items Ascribed to Mary Baker Eddy, p.75)

     To be Christ-like is to triumph over Sickness, sin and death, to open the prison doors to the captive; that is, to break the fetters of personal sense, and give to being full scope and recompense. This is the ultimate of the command to love our neighbor as ourself, and an idea from Soul, yea, from Wisdom, Love and Truth; but this idea personal sense cannot see, feel, or understand, whereas spiritual sense can; “the carnal mind cannot discern spiritual things.”  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st Ed., p.121)

On this Principle and with this Truth he wrought all his so-called miracles. It was not man, or medicine that healed the sick, but God; not matter that controlled man, but Spirit that controlled matter. This, his interpretation of God and man was the rock or foundation on which Jesus built his church, that is, established his demonstration of Truth, God, against which the gates of error could not prevail, but there was neither a creed nor rite named in it, and mediumship plainly denied.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st Ed., p.121)

     In secret yearnings to be better understood, the Master turned in confidence to Peter, saying, “But whom say ye that I am?” This inquiry meant simply, who or what is it that casts out error and heals the sick? And because he turned from the other disciples’ answer and put anew the question to Peter, it plainly indicated he disapproved the belief he was a medium as he bad before signified, saying, “I and the Father are one.” Peter’s reply so unlike the others admitting He was “Christ,” Truth, that healed the sick and cast out error, called forth the answer, “Our Father in heaven,” that is, the Principle of man “hath shown thee this,” in the science of being, and also that Jesus is the “Son of God,” the offspring of Soul and not sense.   (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st Ed., p.120-121)
