LIFE.

- Section 1 -

 

Psalm 66:8,9
8 O bless our God, ye people, and
make the voice of his praise to be
heard:
9 Which holdeth our soul in life,
and suffereth not our feet to be
moved.
Psalm 36:9
9 For with thee is the fountain of
life: in thy light shall we see light.


***
Acts 17:24-28
24 God that made the world and all
things therein, seeing that he is Lord
of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in
temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men's
hands, as though he needed any thing,
seeing he giveth to all life, and
breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all
nations of men for to dwell on all
the face of the earth, and hath
determined the times before
appointed, and the bounds of their
habitation;
27 That they should seek the Lord,
if haply they might feel after him,
and find him, though he be not far
from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move,
and have our being; as certain also
of your own poets have said, For we
are also his offspring.

The Way

No blight, no broken wing, no moan, 
Truth's fane can dim; 
Eternal swells Christ's music-tone, 
In heaven's hymn. 

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

(Biological inventions)
Which institutes Life, - matter or Mind? Does Life begin with
Mind or with matter? Is Life sustained by matter or by Spirit?
Certainly not by both, since flesh wars against Spirit and the
corporeal senses can take no cognizance of Spirit. The mythologic
theory of material life at no point resembles the scientifically
Christian record of man as created by Mind in the image and
likeness of God and having dominion over all the earth.




193:32-2 Chapter 7: Physiology

 

Chapter 7: Physiology
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.

Christmas Morn

Yet wherefore signalize the birth 
Of him ne'er born? 
What can rehearse the glorious worth 
Of his high morn? 

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

(Mind cures hip-disease)
It has been demonstrated to me that Life is God and that the
might of omnipotent Spirit shares not its strength with matter or
with human will.




107:15 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine

 

Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine
The rights of woman acknowledged

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.

(Discontent with life)
Feeling so perpetually the false consciousness that life inheres
in the body, yet remembering that in reality God is our Life, we
may well tremble in the prospect of those days in which we must
say, "I have no pleasure in them."




390:4 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice

 

Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice
Divine Science understood and acknowledged. 

Christian Unity (1)

For Christian Science brings to view
The great I Am,-
Omniscient power,- gleaming through
Mind, mother, man. 

And Love is reflected in love.

(Ultimate harmony)
We cannot deny that Life is self-sustained, and we should never
deny the everlasting harmony of Soul, simply because, to the
mortal senses, there is seeming discord. It is our ignorance of
God, the divine Principle, which produces apparent discord, and the
right understanding of Him restores harmony. Truth will at length
compel us all to exchange the pleasures and pains of sense for the
joys of Soul.

428:26-4 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice

(The present immortality)
The evidence of man's immortality will become more apparent, as
material beliefs are given up and the immortal facts of being are
admitted.
(Careful guidance)
The author has healed hopeless organic disease, and raised the
dying to life and health through the understanding of God as the
only Life. It is a sin to believe that aught can overpower
omnipotent and eternal Life, and this Life must be brought to
light by the understanding that there is no death, as well as by
other graces of Spirit.
