Soul changeth not. We are commonly taught that there
is a human soul which sins and is spiritually lost, - that
soul may be lost, and yet be immortal. If
Soul could sin, Spirit, Soul, would be flesh instead
of Spirit. It is the belief of the flesh and of material
sense which sins. If Soul sinned, Soul would die.
Sin is the element of self-destruction, and spiritual death
is oblivion. If there was sin in Soul, the annihilation of
Spirit would be inevitable. The only Life is Spirit, and
if Spirit should lose Life as God, good, then Spirit, which
has no other existence, would be annihilated.
Mind is God, and God is not seen by material sense,
because Mind is Spirit, which material sense cannot
discern. There is neither growth, maturity, nor decay in
Soul. These changes are the mutations of material sense,
the varying clouds of mortal belief, which hide the truth
What we term mortal mind or carnal mind, dependent
on matter for manifestation, is not Mind. God is Mind:
all that Mind, God, is, or hath made, is good, and He
made all. Hence evil is not made and is not real.
