I John 1:5
5 This then is the message which we
have heard of him, and declare unto
you, that God is light, and in him is
no darkness at all.

***
John 5:26
26 For as the Father hath life in
himself; so hath he given to the Son
to have life in himself;

***
Psalm 46:1,6
1 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms
were moved: he uttered his voice, the
earth melted.


504:27-31 Chapter 15: Genesis

 

Chapter 15: Genesis
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

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.

Cardinal point 2 - Column 4 - Extended



(Spirit versus darkness)
Did infinite Mind create matter, and call it light? Spirit is
light, and the contradiction of Spirit is matter, darkness, and
darkness obscures light. Material sense is nothing but a
supposition of the absence of Spirit.


335:7 Chapter 10: Science of Being - [PLATFORM]

I thank Thee O Father,...

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. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 3 - Extended



(-18- The only substance)
XVIII. Spirit, God, has created all in and of Himself. Spirit
never created matter. There is nothing in Spirit out of which
matter could be made, for, as the Bible declares, without the
Logos, the Aeon or Word of God, "was not anything made that was
made." Spirit is the only substance, the invisible and
indivisible infinite God. Things spiritual and eternal are
substantial. Things material and temporal are insubstantial.

The Way, the Truth, the Life - His word - 
Are here, and now 
Christ's silent healing, heaven heard, 
Crowns the pale brow. 

And forgive us our debts, 
as we forgive our debtors. 

Cardinal point 2 - Column 3 - Extended



(One supremacy)
Can Deity be almighty, if another mighty and self-creative cause
exists and sways mankind? Has the Father "Life in Himself," as
the Scriptures say, and, if so, can Life, or God, dwell in evil
and create it? Can matter drive Life, Spirit, hence, and so defeat
omnipotence?


97:26 Chapter 4: Christian Science versus Spiritualism

 

Chapter 4: Christian Science versus Spiritualism
The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality. 

Seeking and Finding.

What the Beloved knew and taught, 
Science repeats, 
Through understanding, dearly sought, 
With fierce heart-beats;  

Adorable One.

(Dangerous resemblances)
"He uttered His voice, the earth melted." This Scripture
indicates that all matter will disappear before the supremacy of
Spirit.
