Weekly Message for Sunday, May 18, 2003
                                      

                     The Master Mind Jesus was Radical, Mystical, Powerful, Authoritative and demonstrated the Truth to a Greater extent than anyone before or after Him.  The religious leaders of His time, however, did not see Him as Radical, Mystical, Powerful and Authoritative ... they declared Him to be vile and blasphemous!  He was a Jewish Mystic teaching a New Dispensation that few in His time understood.  Fewer still were those who had the faith and conviction to follow His teachings.  He stated, "I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life."  "I Am," He stated ... not me Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

             Each of us has within us this "I Am."  And each of us has within us "the Way, the Truth and the Life."  The Way is to seek God above all else.  The Truth is that there is only One Power, One Presence, One Infinite Intelligence, God.  The Life is the Life Of God expressing Itself through us, as us and for us at All Times.  Therefore, God Is All we need ... All we will ever need when we nurture and foster the conviction that God Is our All In All.

            Religious Science is the closest spiritual/religious philosophy to the teachings of Jesus ... it is in fact, the Religion Of Jesus ... Religious Science is Radical, Mystical, Powerful and Authoritative and if we "learn and practice" the Principles taught in Religious Science we can understand and realize Jesus' statement, "these things I do and greater things still shall you do."

           "The Science of Mind," written by Dr. Ernest Holmes contains 84 pages devoted to the Teachings Of Jesus and the New Testament.  Each Principle taught by Religious Science can be traced to the Teachings Of Jesus will little effort.  However, to truly understand the Teachings Of Jesus and Religious Science, we must let go of almost everything that we have been taught ... much of what we have considered the Truth ... and we must begin to embody the concept taught by Jesus:  "Be in the world but not of the world."  The world, like the religious leaders of Jesus' time ... will attempt to convince us that Jesus was God ... or that Jesus was a fraud.  Both ideas are erroneous and will prevent us from demonstrating a Life of freedom, joy, peace, harmony, strength and abundance.  Jesus taught "the Way" and "narrow is the gate and few are they that enter."  But, by using the Principles contained in the Science of Mind, the very same Principles that Jesus taught ... more of us will enter into the Fuller Life.

            Unfortunately, many of the churches and centers that teach Religious Science, along with those who teach Christianity ... have wavered in their conviction of the Teachings Of Jesus (Truth) and have watered down the teachings to a concept of "comfort" rather than "healing."  The focus has moved from "healing" to oftentimes entertainment and social circles ... a sanctuary from the world rather than a teaching of how to be in the world but not of the world ... a greater value has been placed on intellectual knowledge rather than demonstration of the Principles ... which is a dead-end.  Many churches and centers of Religious Science have allowed the teaching to be infiltrated with other teachings ... teachings that are mystical and wonderful ... but have no real authority and dominion to their philosophies.  The Mystical teachings of Jesus and Dr. Ernest Holmes give us Life Mastery ... rather than mystical mystery.

        Jesus was a healer ... He commanded those who followed Him to "heal, prosper and bless."  To teach the Principles that He taught and ignore the command to "heal" ... brings confusion into the lives of the teachers and those who are being taught.  To "heal" in the spiritual sense is to "revitalize" ... to "bring back to life" ... those areas of our lives that are dis-eased ... to restore health in the midst of sickness, happiness in the midst of sadness, prosperity in the midst of lack and limitation ... all this and more is possible.  Dr. Holmes could have easily made the same statement as Jesus, "these things I do and greater things still shall you do!"
                     

 And So It Is! 
Letting Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
