The improved knowledge of God, whom Jesus declared...

Flint (Mich.) News

The improved knowledge of God, whom Jesus declared to be Spirit, is clearly the manifestation of divine Mind or infinite intelligence. This knowing includes the better understanding of the nature and qualities of the creations of this infinite Spirit or Mind, and of man as primarily and eternally a spiritual being in the image and likeness of Spirit, not matter. Christian Scientists plant themselves unreservedly on the teachings and practice of Jesus and Paul, which teachings and practice they are striving day by day to better comprehend and express.

"It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh [matter or non-intelligence] profiteth nothing." "The flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other." Again, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." Is it not now as then? Are not spiritual laws and means to-day regarded as foolishness, and is not the natural man to-day claiming to know the laws and ways of the one infinite Spirit, and to know and discern them materially and as wholly material? Is not this claim an emphatic contradiction of Paul's statement, that spiritual laws and means must be spiritually (mentally) not materially discerned? Is it not a fair deduction that if the spiritual law of life must be spiritually discerned, it must be spiritually, not materially, utilized and applied?
