(Jesus' disregard of matter)
The Principle and proof of Christianity are discerned
by spiritual sense. They are set forth in Jesus' demonstrations,
which show - by his healing the
sick, casting out evils, and destroying death,
"the last enemy that shall be destroyed," -
his disregard of matter and its so-called laws.

The expression mortal mind is really a solecism, for
Mind is immortal, and Truth pierces the error of mortality

this so-called mind is self-destructive, I name it mortal.
Error soweth the wind and reapeth the whirlwind.

"I suffer, I die, I am sick, or I am well." It is the so-called
mortal mind which voices this and appears
to itself to make good its claim. To
mortal sense, sin and suffering are real, but immortal
sense includes no evil nor pestilence. Because immortal
sense has no error of sense, it has no sense of error; therefore
it is without a destructive element.
