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.

(Mental emancipation)
What is this supposed power, which opposes itself to God? Whence
cometh it? What is it that binds man with iron shackles to sin,
sickness, and death? Whatever enslaves man is opposed to the
divine government. Truth makes man free.


191:21 Chapter 7: Physiology

 

Chapter 7: Physiology

Yet wherefore signalize the birth 
Of him ne'er born? 
What can rehearse the glorious worth 
Of his high morn? 

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

(Spiritual freedom)
By its own volition, not a blade of grass springs up, not a
spray buds within the vale, not a leaf unfolds its fair outlines,
not a flower starts from its cloistered cell.


553:29 Chapter 15: Genesis

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.

(Being is immortal)
You may say that mortals are formed before they think or know
aught of their origin, and you may also ask how belief can affect
a result which precedes the development of that belief. It can
only be replied, that Christian Science reveals what "eye hath not
seen," - even the cause of all that exists, - for the universe,
inclusive of man, is as eternal as God, who is its divine immortal
Principle. There is no such thing as mortality, nor are there
properly any mortal beings, because being is immortal, like Deity,
- or, rather, being and Deity are inseparable.

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.

(Human egotism)
The creations of mortal mind are material. Immortal spiritual
man alone represents the truth of creation.

(Biological inventions)
If, in the beginning, man's body originated in nonintelligent
dust, and mind was afterwards put into body by the creator, why is
not this divine order still maintained by God in perpetuating the
species? Who will say that minerals, vegetables, and animals have
a propagating property of their own? Who dares to say either that
God is in matter or that matter exists without God? Has man
sought out other creative inventions, and so changed the method of
his Maker?


209:16-22 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

(Spiritual translation)
The compounded minerals or aggregated substances composing the
earth, the relations which constituent masses hold to each other,
the magnitudes, distances, and revolutions of the celestial bodies,
are of no real importance, when we remember that they all must
give place to the spiritual fact by the translation of man and the
universe back into Spirit.
