"No redundant drop"

The usual response of humanity to persecution is to resent it. Self-pity takes over, holding the aggrieved one in a personal state of thought. And troubles are thus prolonged. Rebellion was not the way Christ Jesus followed or taught. He was meek in the face of mortals' inhumanity and forgave those who tormented him.

Christian Science interprets the Master's life, explaining the Principle of his steadfast love to be God, the one Father of man. In the light of his knowledge of God's infinitude, Jesus recognized the unreality of all that contradicts the presence of justice and goodness. He refused to respond to the machinations of the physical senses, which constantly attempted to deceive him with their false presentments of man as a sinful mortal. These presentments Jesus recognized as the liar's lies, the misconceptions of a spurious mind, a mind that is not God.
