ARE SIN, DISEASE, AND DEATH REAL?

- Section 5 -

 

Hebrews 2:9,14,15
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a
little lower than the angels for the
suffering of death, crowned with
glory and honour; that he by the
grace of God should taste death for
every man.
14 Forasmuch then as the children
are partakers of flesh and blood, he
also himself likewise took part of
the same; that through death he might
destroy him that had the power of
death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through
fear of death were all their lifetime
subject to bondage.

***
Romans 6:22,23
22 But now being made free from
sin, and become servants to God, ye
have your fruit unto holiness, and
the end everlasting life.
23 For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 8:2
2 For the law of the Spirit of life
in Christ Jesus hath made me free
from the law of sin and death.

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

And Love is reflected in love.

(Christian standard)
Sin brought death, and death will disappear with the
disappearance of sin. Man is immortal, and the body cannot die,
because matter has no life to surrender. The human concepts named
matter, death, disease, sickness, and sin are all that can be
destroyed.


76:22 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.

(Immaterial pleasure)
The sinless joy, - the perfect harmony and immortality of Life,
possessing unlimited divine beauty and goodness without a single
bodily pleasure or pain, - constitutes the only veritable,
indestructible man, whose being is spiritual. This state of
existence is scientific and intact, - a perfection discernible
only by those who have the final understanding of Christ in divine
Science. Death can never hasten this state of existence, for
death must be overcome, not submitted to, before immortality
appears.

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.

(A belief in death)
The universal belief in death is of no advantage. It cannot
make Life or Truth apparent. Death will be found at length to be
a mortal dream, which comes in darkness and disappears with the
light.
