Undivided Allegiance to God

In that unsurpassed compilation of practical spiritual teachings called the Sermon on the Mount, Christ Jesus definitely declared that our allegiance to God must be undivided. He said: "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Continuing, the great Master then instructed his followers to turn their thoughts away from consideration and contemplation of material things and conditions, promising that whatever is humanly necessary to men would be theirs if they would seek first the kingdom of God, that is, seek to have their thinking and living governed by divine Principle, Love.

Because of the revelation of spiritual reality and law which came to Mary Baker Eddy, whereby she was enabled to discern, declare, and demonstrate the Science of Christianity, the simple and practical import of Christ Jesus' teachings can now be understood and proved. Whereas it was formerly believed that men could worship and serve God, and at the same time depend upon material means for healing sickness, Christian Science, pointing to Jesus' statement, "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing," insists consistently that there is no intelligence, law, power, nor influence in matter, and that to serve God we must accord all reality, law, and creative, controlling power to infinite divine Mind alone.
