Proof of the Christ, Truth

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE enables mankind not only to understand the teachings of Christ Jesus about God, man, and the universe, but to prove them, thereby obeying the instructions of the Master to do the works he did. In order to do this, we must heed Mary Baker Eddy's words on page 392 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "Stand porter at the door of thought." We do not half realize what a blessed, helpful message this is to all who accept and obey it. Standing porter at the door of thought is being on guard at our mental doors constantly, allowing only the good, the uplifting—the Godlike—to enter our consciousness, and barring out all that would disturb, annoy, or make us unhappy. If all were continually faithful porters at the door of thought, all would be ever usefully employed, aiding not only themselves, but others also.

Christ Jesus taught and proved sin, disease, death, lack, limitation, loss, to be untrue—unreal. He held to the truth of being that "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good," and "without him was not any thing made that was made." As there is not the slightest good in sin, disease, death, lack, or limitation, not one of these exists in reality. Merely saying this accomplishes little, however.
