Amsterdam (N. Y.) Recorder
In the days of Jesus the people were steeped in the letter of religion; but they had largely lost sight of the Scriptures in their spiritual signification, and because of this their religion had largely degenerated into form and ceremony. Consequently when Jesus appeared on the scene, giving the spiritual, original, and scientific meaning of the sacred writings, the very people who should have been mentally awake enough to recognize the looked-for Messiah or spiritual deliverer, rejected him.
A striking illustration of this opposition to spiritual understanding occurred when Jesus healed a man of dropsy. Criticized for doing good on the Sabbath day, Jesus turned on his critics and cried, "Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?" His aim was to point out that it is always right to do good, and that without this accompaniment religion is mere mockery. Christianity as Jesus taught and lived it was lost sight of a few centuries after his departure, only to be permanently reestablished through the discovery of its Principle as revealed in Christian Science.
