GOD THE ONLY CAUSE AND CREATOR.

- Section 3 -

 

Job 36:5,6
5 Behold, God is mighty, and
despiseth not any: he is mighty in
strength and wisdom.
6 He preserveth not the life of the
wicked: but giveth right to the poor.


***
Isaiah 55:7-9
7 Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
and let him return unto the Lord, and
he will have mercy upon him; and to
our God, for he will abundantly
pardon.
8 #For my thoughts are not your
thoughts, neither are your ways my
ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my ways higher
than your ways, and my thoughts than
your thoughts.

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(No union of opposites)
We should hesitate to say that Jehovah sins or suffers; but if
sin and suffering are realities of being, whence did they emanate?
God made all that was made, and Mind signifies God, - infinity,
not finity. Not far removed from infidelity is the belief which
unites such opposites as sickness and health, holiness and
unholiness, calls both the offspring of spirit, and at the same
time admits that Spirit is God, - virtually declaring Him good in
one instance and evil in another.

230:11 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

(God never inconsistent)
It would be contrary to our highest ideas of God to suppose Him
capable of first arranging law and causation so as to bring about
certain evil results, and then punishing the helpless victims of
His volition for doing what they could not avoid doing. Good is
not, cannot be, the author of experimental sins. God, good, can
no more produce sickness than goodness can cause evil and health
occasion disease.

207:20 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

(One primal cause)
There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can be no effect
from any other cause, and there can be no reality in aught which
does not proceed from this great and only cause. Sin, sickness,
disease, and death belong not to the Science of being. They are
the errors, which presuppose the absence of Truth, Life, or Love.


262:30 Chapter 9: Creation

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.

(Mind the only cause)
Divine Mind is the only cause or Principle of existence. Cause
does not exist in matter, in mortal mind, or in physical forms.

(Deformity and perfection)
Inasmuch as God is good and the fount of all being, He does not
produce moral or physical deformity; therefore such deformity is
not real, but is illusion, the mirage of error. Divine Science
reveals these grand facts. On their basis Jesus demonstrated
Life, never fearing nor obeying error in any form.
