"Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God."II Cor. 5:20;
When the Apostle Paul thus entreated the early Christian church in Corinth, surely he must have had in mind that reconcilement to one supremely good God is the essence of Christianity. Through his own reconciliation to God's ever-presence and beneficence manifested in the Christ, he was healed of blindness and then was able to bring healing to others.
Mrs. Eddy states in Science and Health, "Jesus aided in reconciling man to God by giving man a truer sense of Love, the divine Principle of Jesus' teachings, and this truer sense of Love redeems man from the law of matter, sin, and death by the law of Spirit, —the law of divine Love."Science and Health, p. 19; It was "this truer sense of Love" which enabled Jesus to reject every suggestion of a power or presence other than God and thus to demonstrate to mankind the way out of bondage to materiality.
