Follow my teachings only so far as they follow Christ’s in word and deed

Have no will opposed to God. Meekness is not weakness. It is ‘not my will but Thine be done,’ throwing ourselves into God’s power.
Know that you – your God-reflected self – has God-health, God-peace, God-happiness, etc. and that the evil one or devil cannot take this from you.
Trust in God and leave evil to do its own work of self-destruction. Always overcome evil with good. Never descend to the warfare between evil and human will trying to do God’s will. But forgive all offences and love every enemy you may think you have.
Watch and pray against becoming worldly; also for spiritual sense to govern all your motives and acts.
Human will may trespass on divine law; corporeal sense may hide health, and truth, as the mist obscures the mountain; but Science subordinates human will and is the sunshine of Truth which melts the shadow and reveals the substance. Follow my teachings only so far as they follow Christ’s in word and deed.
