PROBATION AFTER DEATH.

- Section 1 -

 

Psalm 22:27
27 All the ends of the world shall
remember and turn unto the Lord: and
all the kindreds of the nations shall
worship before thee.

***
Isaiah 45:22-24
22 Look unto me, and be ye saved,
all the ends of the earth: for I am
God, and there is none else.
23 I have sworn by myself, the word
is gone out of my mouth in
righteousness, and shall not return,
That unto me every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear.
24 Surely, shall one say, in the
Lord have I righteousness and
strength: even to him shall men come;
and all that are incensed against him
shall be ashamed.

***
Ephesians 5:5-9,14
5 For this ye know, that no
whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor
covetous man, who is an idolater,
hath any inheritance in the kingdom
of Christ and of God.
6 Let no man deceive you with vain
words: for because of these things
cometh the wrath of God upon the
children of disobedience.
7 Be not ye therefore partakers
with them.
8 For ye were sometimes darkness,
but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is
in all goodness and righteousness and
truth;)
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou
that sleepest, and arise from the
dead, and Christ shall give thee
light.

***
I John 3:3
3 And every man that hath this hope
in him purifieth himself, even as he
is pure.


291:12 Chapter 10: Science of Being

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.

(Salvation and probation)
Universal salvation rests on progression and probation, and is
unattainable without them. Heaven is not a locality, but a divine
state of Mind in which all the manifestations of Mind are
harmonious and immortal, because sin is not there and man is found
having no righteousness of his own, but in possession of "the mind
of the Lord," as the Scripture says.


259:6 Chapter 9: Creation

 

Chapter 9: Creation
Divine Science understood and acknowledged.

Forever present, bounteous, free, 
Christ comes in gloom; 
And aye, with grace towards you and me, 
For health makes room. 

Give us this day our daily bread.

Cardinal point 4 - Column 3 - Extended



(God's man discerned)
In divine Science, man is the true image of God. The divine
nature was best expressed in Christ Jesus, who threw upon mortals
the truer reflection of God and lifted their lives higher than
their poor thought-models would allow, - thoughts which presented
man as fallen, sick, sinning, and dying. The Christlike
understanding of scientific being and divine healing includes a
perfect Principle and idea, - perfect God and perfect man, - as
the basis of thought and demonstration.


43:27 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. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 1 - Extended



(Divine victory)
The divine must overcome the human at every point. The Science
Jesus taught and lived must triumph over all material beliefs
about life, substance, and intelligence, and the multitudinous
errors growing from such beliefs.
