Mrs. Eddy once wrote, “The Christ is the manifestation of Truth and this Truth came not to destroy but to fulfill the law of Life and to perfectly realize all of its manifestations.  It is reported that Jesus said on one occasion. ‘These things ought ye to have done and not to leave the others undone.’ The healer in Christian Science carries two lines of thought: first the approximation to the truth, and second, the final truth.  He argues for all the manifestations of health of body.  At the same time he argues that man is God’s own image and likeness. In the words of St. John, ‘Now are we the sons of God’.  The healer does not discourage the thought by trying to make that appear first, which is not the beginning but the end of the desired result. The full consummation of Life, Truth and Love is not reached at once, but through the footsteps as did the apostle.  When we have reached divine understanding, through these footsteps, we shall then know ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life.’  Then we shall find ourselves the image and likeness of divine Love – the child of God, the offspring of Spirit – never born of the flesh nor of the will of man, but co-existent with the eternal and infinite God.”   Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, 500 Watching Points, #55)
