EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT.

- Section 3 -

 

Psalm 90:1,3,7
1 Lord, thou hast been our
dwelling place in all generations.
3 Thou turnest man to destruction;
and sayest, Return, ye children of
men.
7 For we are consumed by thine
anger, and by thy wrath are we
troubled.

***
Matthew 13:40-43
40 As therefore the tares are
gathered and burned in the fire; so
shall it be in the end of this world.

41 The Son of man shall send forth
his angels, and they shall gather out
of his kingdom all things that
offend, and them which do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a
furnace of fire: there shall be
wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then shall the righteous shine
forth as the sun in the kingdom of
their Father. Who hath ears to hear,
let him hear.

***
Revelation 22:11
11 He that is unjust, let him be
unjust still: and he which is filthy,
let him be filthy still: and he that
is righteous, let him be righteous
still: and he that is holy, let him
be holy still.

***
Matthew 25:41,46
41 Then shall he say also unto them
on the left hand, Depart from me, ye
cursed, into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his
angels:
46 And these shall go away into
everlasting punishment: but the
righteous into life eternal.

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

And Love is reflected in love.

(Sin or fear the root of sickness)
Hatred, envy, dishonesty, fear, and so forth, make a man sick, and
neither material medicine nor Mind can help him permanently, even
in body, unless it makes him better mentally, and so delivers him
from his destroyers. The basic error is mortal mind. Hatred
inflames the brutal propensities. The indulgence of evil motives
and aims makes any man, who is above the lowest type of manhood, a
hopeless sufferer.

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.

(The counterfeit forces)
There is no vapid fury of mortal mind-expressed in earthquake,
wind, wave, lightning, fire, bestial ferocity - and this so-called
mind is self-destroyed. The manifestations of evil, which
counterfeit divine justice, are called in the Scriptures, "The
anger of the Lord." In reality, they show the self-destruction of
error or matter and point to matter's opposite, the strength and
permanency of Spirit. Christian Science brings to light Truth and
its supremacy, universal harmony, the entireness of God, good, and
the nothingness of evil.


72:13 Chapter 4: Christian Science versus Spiritualism

The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality. 

Seeking and Finding.

With fierce heart-beats;  

Adorable One.

(Spirits obsolete)
Mortal belief (the material sense of life) and immortal Truth
(the spiritual sense) are the tares and the wheat, which are not
united by progress, but separated.

(Death no advantage)
That Life or Mind is finite and physical or is manifested
through brain and nerves, is false. Hence Truth comes to destroy
this error and its effects, - sickness, sin, and death. To the
spiritual class, relates the Scripture: "On such the second death
hath no power."
(Future purification)
If the change called death destroyed the belief in sin,
sickness, and death, happiness would be won at the moment of
dissolution, and be forever permanent; but this is not so.
Perfection is gained only by perfection. They who are unrighteous
shall be unrighteous still, until in divine Science Christ, Truth,
removes all ignorance and sin.
