Job 28:12,13,23,28
12 But where shall wisdom be found?
and where is the place of
understanding?
13 Man knoweth not the price
thereof; neither is it found in the
land of the living.
23 God understandeth the way
thereof, and he knoweth the place
thereof.
28 And unto man he said, Behold,
the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom;
and to depart from evil is
understanding.

***
Psalm 147:5
5 Great is our Lord, and of great
power: his understanding is infinite.


***
I John 5:20
20 And we know that the Son of God
is come, and hath given us an
understanding, that we may know him
that is true, and we are in him that
is true, even in his Son Jesus
Christ. This is the true God, and
eternal life.

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.

(Spiritual existence the one fact)
For right reasoning there should be but one fact before the
thought, namely, spiritual existence. In reality there is no
other existence, since Life cannot be united to its unlikeness,
mortality.


207:27 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(One primal cause)
The spiritual reality is the scientific fact in all things. The
spiritual fact, repeated in the action of man and the whole
universe, is harmonious and is the ideal of Truth. Spiritual facts
are not inverted; the opposite discord, which bears no resemblance
to spirituality, is not real. The only evidence of this inversion
is obtained from suppositional error, which affords no proof of
God, Spirit, or of the spiritual creation. Material sense defines
all things materially, and has a finite sense of the infinite.

209:31 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

(Spiritual translation)
Spiritual sense is a conscious, constant capacity to understand
God. It shows the superiority of faith by works over faith in
words. Its ideas are expressed only in "new tongues;" and these
are interpreted by the translation of the spiritual original into
the language which human thought can comprehend.

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.

(Five senses deceptive)
The senses of Spirit abide in Love, and they demonstrate Truth
and Life. Hence Christianity and the Science which expounds it
are based on spiritual understanding, and they supersede the
so-called laws of matter. Jesus demonstrated this great verity.
When what we erroneously term the five physical senses are
misdirected, they are simply the manifested beliefs of mortal
mind, which affirm that life, substance, and intelligence are
material, instead of spiritual. These false beliefs and their
products constitute the flesh, and the flesh wars against Spirit.
