THE DIVINE SOURCE

Christian Science turns one away from the traditional theological belief that man is a mortal, dependent upon himself for life and health, to the truth that man is spiritual emanation, dependent upon God, his source, for all things. Mary Baker Eddy makes this explanation in "Pulpit and Press" (p. 4): "Is not a man metaphysically and mathematically number one, a unit, and therefore whole number, governed and protected by his divine Principle, God? You have simply to preserve a scientific, positive sense of unity with your divine source, and daily demonstrate this."

Christ Jesus' knowledge that he had a divine source made it possible for him to manifest the perfection and power of that infinite source and to do so consistently. Some of Jesus' sayings which bear on this subject are found in the eighth chapter of John. For instance, he said: "I do nothing of myself. ... He that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him." He also declared, "I proceeded forth and came from God."
