In Paul's second epistle to the Corinthians we read: "Henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more." The question, "What is truth? is not confined to Jesus' time, but is being asked today, and answered by Christian Science as it was by Jesus, in the demonstration of divine Principle, or Truth itself, casting out evil and healing the sick and sinning. In this Science we learn that nothing is true save that which is of God, or godlike, and therefore spiritual; that which will be true through all time, and which has been true "before the world began."

In John's gospel we read that when the scribes and Pharisees brought to Jesus a woman taken in sin, and insisted that he condemn her according to their law, Jesus said, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." The Scripture continues: "When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."

When Jesus lifted himself above the evidence of the material senses to the Christly view-point, he not only did not condemn the woman as a sinner, but this exalted state of consciousness, seeing man as the pure image of God, also banished all evidence and testimony to the contrary, and Jesus beheld a woman who could "sin no more." When a man beholds himself and the universe from God's view-point, all self-righteousness, self-condemnation, and illusion will disappear, never to reappear.
