ANCIENT AND MODERN NECROMANCY,

- Section 4 -

 

Matthew 24:24
24 For there shall arise false
Christs, and false prophets, and
shall shew great signs and wonders;
insomuch that, if it were possible,
they shall deceive the very elect.

***
I John 2:18,19
18 Little children, it is the last
time: and as ye have heard that
antichrist shall come, even now are
there many antichrists; whereby we
know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from us, but they
were not of us: for if they had been
of us, they would no doubt have
continued with us: but they went out,
that they might be made manifest that
they were not all of us.

***
Titus 1:16
16 They profess that they know God;
but in works they deny him, being
abominable, and disobedient, and unto
every good work reprobate.

(Hidden agents)
The mild forms of animal magnetism are disappearing, and its
aggressive features are coming to the front. The looms of crime,
hidden in the dark recesses of mortal thought, are every hour
weaving webs more complicated and subtle. So secret are the
present methods of animal magnetism that they ensnare the age into
indolence, and produce the very apathy on the subject which the
criminal desires.

103:18-24 Chapter 5: Animal Magnetism Unmasked

(The genus of error)
As named in Christian Science, animal magnetism or hypnotism is
the specific term for error, or mortal mind. It is the false
belief that mind is in matter, and is both evil and good; that
evil is as real as good and more powerful. This belief has not
one quality of Truth. It is either ignorant or malicious. The
malicious form of hypnotism ultimates in moral idiocy.


564:3-23 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse

 

Chapter 16: Apocalypse
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my

And I will give him the MORNING STAR.

For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

(Animal tendency)
As of old, evil still charges the spiritual idea with error's
own nature and methods. This malicious animal instinct, of which
the dragon is the type, incites mortals to kill morally and
physically even their fellow-mortals, and worse still, to charge
the innocent with the crime. This last infirmity of sin will sink
its perpetrator into a night without a star.
(Malicious barbarity)
The author is convinced that the accusations against Jesus of
Nazareth and even his crucifixion were instigated by the criminal
instinct here described. The Revelator speaks of Jesus as the
Lamb of God and of the dragon as warring against innocence. Since
Jesus must have been tempted in all points, he, the immaculate, met
and conquered sin in every form. The brutal barbarity of his foes
could emanate from no source except the highest degree of human
depravity. Jesus "opened not his mouth." Until the majesty
of Truth should be demonstrated in divine Science, the spiritual
idea was arraigned before the tribunal of so-called mortal mind,
which was unloosed in order that the false claim of mind in matter
might uncover its own crime of defying immortal Mind.

570:1 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse

(Apathy to occultism)
The march of mind and of honest investigation will bring the
hour when the people will chain, with fetters of some sort, the
growing occultism of this period. The present apathy as to the
tendency of certain active yet unseen mental agencies will finally
be shocked into another extreme mortal mood, - into human
indignation; for one extreme follows another.

(Thought-transference)
When Christian Science and animal magnetism are both
comprehended, as they will be at no distant date, it will be seen
why the author of this book has been so unjustly persecuted and
belied by wolves in sheep's clothing.
