Did not Christ Jesus say, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free"? The knowing of the truth is the practical acceptance of the fact that God is ever present good, and that man is His image and likeness, as recorded in the first chapter of the book of Genesis, and results in the practical application of this spiritual knowledge and understanding in daily life and thinking. This, of course involves as fast as is practicable, the intelligent and practical rejection of all evil, that is, sin and disease of every description, and even death itself, which has been described in the Bible as an enemy, not a friend. In speaking of God, the prophet Habakkuk wrote, "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity."

Christ Jesus spent his days, as recorded in the Gospels, not only in preaching and teaching, but also in healing sin and sickness and in raising the dead. In fact he laid more stress on his works than on anything he said. For example, John reports the Master as saying, "Believe me for the very works' sake." He taught his disciples and all who would follow him to do as he did. His last words, as recorded in Mark, were: "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly things, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." Note that although he was speaking to his disciples he used the word "them," not "you," meaning those who believe on him for all time.
