THE purpose of salvation is to prove that Life, with all its inherent values, its precious attributes, its boundless opportunities, is indestructible, and that man, God's expression, consciously recognizes this fact. The mission of Christ Jesus was to bring this knowledge to mankind; to manifest in benediction, in fearlessness, in spiritual dominion, the preserving love of God for His creation. Thus it was that the Master rebuked his disciples for desiring a form of revenge on those who had refused to accept him in their midst, which would have been incompatible with his mission. "Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of," he told them. "For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them."

In confirmation of this statement Mary Baker Eddy writes on page 316 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "Christ presents the indestructible man, whom Spirit creates, constitutes, and governs." It is this presentation of man which is exemplified throughout the Gospels in the healing of sickness and sin, and in the overcoming of death. It is this presentation which Mary Baker Eddy discovered and gave to the world in all its scientific wholeness and significance.
