GOD THE ONLY CAUSE AND CREATOR.

- Section 6 -

 

Psalm 111:2,3,7,8
2 The works of the Lord are great,
sought out of all them that have
pleasure therein.
3 His work is honourable and
glorious: and his righteousness
endureth for ever.
7 The works of his hands are verity
and judgment; all his commandments
are sure.
8 They stand fast for ever and
ever, and are done in truth and
uprightness.

***
Job 38:4,7
4 Where wast thou when I laid the
foundations of the earth? declare, if
thou hast understanding.
7 When the morning stars sang
together, and all the sons of God
shouted for joy?

***
Psalm 8:4,6-9
4 What is man, that thou art
mindful of him? and the son of man,
that thou visitest him?
6 Thou madest him to have dominion
over the works of thy hands: thou hast
put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the
beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish
of the sea, and whatsoever passeth
through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is
thy name in all the earth!

Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(God the Principle of all)
The divine Principle of the universe must interpret the
universe. God is the divine Principle of all that represents Him
and of all that really exists.

No blight, no broken wing, no moan, 
Truth's fane can dim; 
Eternal swells Christ's music-tone, 
In heaven's hymn. 

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Cardinal point 2 - Column 4 - Extended



(Ideas and identities)
The creative Principle - Life, Truth, and Love - is God. The
universe reflects God. There is but one creator and one creation.
This creation consists of the unfolding of spiritual ideas and
their identities, which are embraced in the infinite Mind and
forever reflected. These ideas range from the infinitesimal to
infinity, and the highest ideas are the sons and daughters of God.

(Definition of man)
The Science of being reveals man as perfect, even as the Father
is perfect, because the Soul, or Mind, of the spiritual man is
God, the divine Principle of all being, and because this real man
is governed by Soul instead of sense, by the law of Spirit, not by
the so-called laws of matter.

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.

(Infinity's reflection)
Man is more than a material form with a mind inside, which must
escape from its environments in order to be immortal. Man
reflects infinity, and this reflection is the true idea of God.

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.

Cardinal point 1 - Column 2 - Extended



(Suicide and sin)
God, divine good, does not kill a man in order to give him
eternal Life, for God alone is man's life. God is at once the
centre and circumference of being. It is evil that dies; good
dies not.


102:12 Chapter 5: Animal Magnetism Unmasked

 

Chapter 5: Animal Magnetism Unmasked

(Mere negation)
The planets have no more power over man than over his Maker,
since God governs the universe; but man, reflecting God's power,
has dominion over all the earth and its hosts.

(Infinity measureless)
Thus the ideas of God in universal being are complete and
forever expressed, for Science reveals infinity and the fatherhood
and motherhood of Love.
