NOT GUILTY

When an individual is judged guilty of having committed a crime, he is subject to punishment; but if he can establish his innocence before the law, he is immediately freed. Mankind has long been judged guilty of mortality, of sickness, sin, and death, of hatred and fear, and has suffered the punishment contingent upon these beliefs. But the Christ, Truth, as presented by Jesus, the great Exemplar, reveals man's eternal, unchanging innocence as a child of God.

The teachings of Christian Science confirm Jesus' teachings, and, when understood, free mortals from self-imposed bondage. Mary Baker Eddy includes in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," beginning on page 430, an allegory depicting a mental trial. Mortal Man, being tried before the Court of Error, is found guilty of having committed liver complaint and is sentenced to death. But a new trial is called for in the higher Court of Spirit, and Christian Science, as counsel for the prisoner, proves man's innocence and wins his freedom with its accompanying regeneration.
