THE TRUTH VERSUS GOSSIP

Truth must be fully demonstrated. There can be no divided allegiance, for Truth and error cannot dwell together in consciousness. Jesus said (Matt, 6: 24): "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." We cannot declare that man is the reflection of God, hence perfect, and at the same time believe he is a human being, hence imperfect. We cannot declare the truth of man while at the same time believing in, and even voicing, the false concept of man.

Jesus, whose pure consciousness demonstrated Christ to humanity, ever saw the perfect spiritual man. He always knew and voiced the truth concerning man. This exalted and correct view of man. never tarnished by the suggestions of the carnal mind, enabled him at all times to heal the sick and restore the sinner. The lies and shallow gossip of mortal mind, declaring man to be unhealthy and a wrongdoer, were dissipated by the spiritual consciousness of man's true being. It would be unthinkable to consider Jesus as either listening to or repeating gossip, or as accepting any false beliefs regarding man. He separated the false from the true. He knew that a mortal is not the image and likeness of God. and his denial of the error and acceptance of the truth destroyed the false picture of man.
