Christ Is the Way
What is the way to heaven, harmony? Through ages men have asked this question in various words. We hear voiced, What is the way to peace? What is the way to Security? What is the way to health?

This Christ, or divinity of the man Jesus, was his divine nature, the godliness which animated him. Divine Truth, Life, and Love gave Jesus authority over sin, sickness, and death. His mission was to reveal the Science of celestial being, to prove what God is and what He does for man." Science and Health, p. 26;
