THE BIBLE'S DESCRIPTION OF "THE HOLY SCRIPTURES"
II Tim. 3:15
King James Version: the holy scriptures... are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
Today's English Version: the Holy Scriptures... are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
SOME OF MARY BAKER EDDY'S MANY DESCRIPTIONS OF THE BIBLE
S&H 497:3 As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life.
S&H 146:23-26 Divine Science derives its sanction from the Bible, and the divine origin of Science is demonstrated through the holy influence of Truth in healing sickness and sin.
S&H 406:1 The Bible contains the recipe for all healing.
My 190:22-27 Jesus gave his disciples (students) power over all manner of diseases; and the Bible was written in order that all peoples, in all ages, should have the same opportunity to become students of the Christ, Truth, and thus become God-endued with power (knowledge of divine law) and with "signs following."
S&H 241:13-14 The Bible teaches transformation of the body by the renewal of Spirit.
S&H 126:24-29 I have demonstrated through Mind the effects of Truth on the health, longevity, and morals of men; and I have found nothing in ancient or in modern systems on which to found my own, except the teachings and demonstrations of our great Master and the lives of prophets and apostles.
Ret 25:3-4 The Bible was my textbook. It answered my questions as to how I was healed;...
S&H 126:29 The Bible has been my only authority. I have had no other guide in "the straight and narrow way" of Truth.
S&H 24:4 Acquaintance with the original texts, and willingness to give up human beliefs (established by hierarchies, and instigated sometimes by the worst passions of men), open the way for Christian Science to be understood, and make the Bible the chart of life, where the buoys and healing currents of Truth are pointed out.
S&H 547:23-25,31-32 The Scriptures are very sacred. Our aim must be to have them understood spiritually, for only by this understanding can truth be gained.
It is this spiritual perception of Scripture, which lifts humanity out of disease and death and inspires faith.
My 295:17 The The Bible is our sea-beaten rock. It guides the fishermen. It stands the storm. It engages the attention and enriches the being of all men.
Mis 363:27 The Bible is the learned man's masterpiece, the ignorant man's dictionary, the wise man's directory.
