The True Christ and the False Christ
by Phineas Parkhurst Quimby
I will try to explain or separate the true Christ from the false Christ and show that “Christ” was never intended to be applied to Jesus as a man, but to a truth superior to the natural man, and this truth is what prophets foretold. It has been called by various names, but is the same truth. There is a natural body of flesh and blood–this was Jesus. His mind like all others was subject to a law of truth that could be developed through the natural man. This power Jesus tried to convince the people of, as I am trying to convince the people that there is such a state as clairvoyance, that is, that there is something around us which the natural man is unaware of that has an identity and can act upon the natural man. When this power acts upon his senses it acts in the form of an idea or thought. The natural man receives it like the servant, but acts as though he was the father of the idea. The world gives him the credit for this superiority over his fellowmen.
But unwilling to admit this power, the world attributes it to some unknown cause as the best way to get out of their trouble. They would rather have it a miracle than a science, for otherwise it would lower them in the estimation of themselves and cause their own destruction, as all truth destroys error. This belief in an intelligence independent of ourselves has always been admitted, but attributed to some miraculous power from another world.
True Life is Health
by Phineas Parkhurst Quimby
True life is health, knowledge and happiness, all in this belief. Death is disease, error, misery and pain, all in this belief. Each of the above is called our knowledge, and to believe in one is to disbelieve in the other, for our life is in our belief. Death is the destruction of the one and the life of the other, or the disbelief of the one and the belief of the other. Christ came to destroy death or belief and bring life and immortality to light, and this life or belief was in Christ. They that lost their life or belief for his sake or belief should find it. Upon this rock or belief I build my faith and the gates of death cannot change me. Now your life is in your belief and you are known by the fruits. My life is my belief. Now as I impart my belief to you, it is your life or health; and as you receive my life or belief, you die to your own; and my life in you grows to a belief and this belief is your health or happiness.
Daily Quotation of Phineas Parkhurst Quimby for Sunday, August 9, 2015
Now I stand alone, as one risen from the dead or these old theories, having passed through all these old ideas and risen again that I may lead you in this light that will open your eyes to the truth of him who spake as never man spake, for he spoke the truth. This truth condemns all man’s opinions; it breaks down all creeds and priestcraft and upsets all the medical faculty and brings peace and good will to man. It teaches that man, in order to break off from his wickedness or opinions and learn to speak the truth, must not try to deceive his fellow man by pretending to know what is merely an opinion.” ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby
