SALVATION IS INDIVIDUAL

Paul said (II Cor. 5:20), "We are ambassadors for Christ,"— living witnesses to Truth in the community. Jesus is the great Exemplar. He taught man's oneness with the Father. He said of himself (John 10:7, 9): "Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.... By me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." Jesus did his work well. It will never need to be done again. Through all the centuries since his time his example has been available to those who have looked for it. Certainly we cannot add to or detract from this example.

Mary Baker Eddy's part was to point out how all mankind may walk in the pathway which was trod by the Master. She says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 165), "The truth uttered and lived by Jesus, who passed on and left to mortals the rich legacy of what he said and did, makes his followers the heirs to his example; but they can neither appreciate nor appropriate his treasures of Truth and Love, until lifted to these by their own growth and experiences."
