GOD THE PRESERVER OF MAN.

Matthew 6:25,28,30
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take
no thought for your life, what ye
shall eat, or what ye shall drink;
nor yet for your body, what ye shall
put on. Is not the life more than
meat, and the body than raiment?
28 And why take ye thought for
raiment? Consider the lilies of the
field, how they grow; they toil not,
neither do they spin:
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the
grass of the field, which to day is,
and to morrow is cast into the oven,
shall he not much more clothe you, O
ye of little faith?

***
Psalm 32:6,7
6 For this shall every one that is
godly pray unto thee in a time when
thou mayest be found: surely in the
floods of great waters they shall not
come nigh unto him.
7 Thou art my hiding place; thou
shalt preserve me from trouble; thou
shalt compass me about with songs of
deliverance.

The Way

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.

(Divine providence)
In divine Science, man is sustained by God, the divine Principle
of being. The earth, at God's command, brings forth food for
man's use. Knowing this, Jesus once said, "Take no thought for
your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink," - presuming
not on the prerogative of his creator, but recognizing God, the
Father and Mother of all, as able to feed and clothe man as He
doth the lilies.


423:8 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice

Christian Unity (1)

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

And Love is reflected in love.

(Scientific corrective)
The Christian Scientist, understanding scientifically that all
is Mind, commences with mental causation, the truth of being, to
destroy the error. This corrective is an alterative, reaching to
every part of the human system. According to Scripture, it
searches "the joints and marrow," and it restores the harmony of
man.


495:1-3 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

 

Chapter 14: Recapitulation
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

Truth versus error

oooo

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

Cardinal point 3 - Column 4 - Extended

br> Question 22. - Will you explain sickness 
and show how it is to be healed?

ADAM = The opposite of Love, called hate.

ADAM = The usurper of Spirit's creation, called self-creative matter.

(Followers of Jesus)
God will heal the sick through man, whenever man is governed by
God. Truth casts out error now as surely as it did nineteen
centuries ago.

494:10-11 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

(Inexhaustible divine Love)
Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.
