John 4:24
24 God is a Spirit: and they that
worship him must worship him in
spirit and in truth.
John 1:17
17 For the law was given by Moses,
but grace and truth came by Jesus
Christ.

***
Hebrews 8:10,11
10 For this is the covenant that I
will make with the house of Israel
after those days, saith the Lord; I
will put my laws into their mind, and
write them in their hearts: and I
will be to them a God, and they shall
be to me a people:
11 And they shall not teach every
man his neighbour, and every man his
brother, saying, Know the Lord: for
all shall know me, from the least to
the greatest.


466:23 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

ADAM = Evil.

(Mankind redeemed)
Heathen mythology and Jewish theology have perpetuated the
fallacy that intelligence, soul, and life can be in matter; and
idolatry and ritualism are the outcome of all man-made beliefs.
The Science of Christianity comes with fan in hand to separate the
chaff from the wheat. Science will declare God aright, and
Christianity will demonstrate this declaration and its divine
Principle, making mankind better physically, morally, and
spiritually.


117:6-10 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine

 

Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially. 

Christmas Eve (2)

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

Cardinal point 3 - Column 2 - Extended



(Spiritual language)
God is Spirit; therefore the language of Spirit must be, and is,
spiritual. Christian Science attaches no physical nature and
significance to the Supreme Being or His manifestation; mortals
alone do this.


31:25-28 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

 

Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist
The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality.

In tender mercy, Spirit sped 
A loyal ray 
To rouse the living, wake the dead, 
And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious.

(Painful prospect)
Referring to the materiality of the age, Jesus said: "The hour
cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the
Father in spirit and in truth."


333:16-23 Chapter 10: Science of Being - [PLATFORM]

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(-13- The divine Principle and idea)
XIII. The advent of Jesus of Nazareth marked the first century
of the Christian era, but the Christ is without beginning of years
or end of days. Throughout all generations both before and
after the Christian era, the Christ, as the spiritual idea, - the
reflection of God, - has come with some measure of power and grace
to all prepared to receive Christ, Truth.
