CHARLES W. J. TENNANT
The healing of Mary Magdalene and the forgiveness of her sin did not depend on the atonement as it is understood by scholastic theology. This is a case where it was the life and teaching of Christ Jesus that brought about her salvation. Each one has to work out his own salvation according to the teachings of our Master. This process is a constant warfare with the flesh; and it will not cease till all evil has been overcome with good. Christian Science reveals the divine Principle which underlay the teachings of Christ Jesus. The study of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, in conjunction with the Bible, enables one to gain the Mind of Christ, to discern things from that point of view, which is the divine in contradistinction to the human or carnal point of view. Christian Scientists not only believe the Word of God, but prove their understanding of it by healing the sick and reforming the sinner in the measure of that understanding. "Faith without works is dead." Humanity is turning to Christian Science because of its fruits, which are those that our Master said would follow "them that believe."
