THE RIGHT CONCEPT

How often we hear a criticism of some so-called "doctrine" of Christian Science, and how often is the explanation given that Christian Scientists base their religion on the sayings and works of Jesus; that there is nothing in his whole life, throughout the years of his ministry, including his teaching and healing, which they do not accept. Christian Scientists know that the nearer they can come to the Christ-mind, in that degree is Truth manifested in their lives in the overcoming of error.

This plainly illustrates the fact that it is the spiritual concept of being which enables a student to demonstrate the Principle of Christian Science, and that there is a wide difference between this concept and mere belief. The lives of Jesus' disciples plainly show that under the same teaching one would reflect more of Truth than another, consequently that his consciousness was more open to the spiritual. This was especially true of the disciple John, who appears from the first to have won the special love and confidence of his Lord and Master, so that he was designated as the "disciple whom Jesus loved." If we contrast John with Thomas, who is sometimes called the doubting disciple, we shall see that the difference between them was due to John's greater spirituality.
