This page presents the two recapitulation statements (questions and answers) that pertain to the selected group from the chapter RECAPITULATION of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. To the statements the applicable part of the glossary definition for the term ADAM is added, and the applicable Bible Lesson topic.


      
Question 7. 

- What is substance?
    
      Answer. -
     
(Spiritual synonyms)
      Substance is that which is eternal and incapable of discord and decay. Truth, Life, and Love are substance, as the Scriptures use this word in Hebrews: "The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Spirit, the synonym of Mind, Soul, or God, is the only real substance. The spiritual universe, including individual man, is a compound idea, reflecting the divine substance of Spirit.

 
Adam: A belief in intelligent matter, finiteness, and mortality.
  
    Lesson topic: SOUL


      
Question 8. 

- What is Life?

      Answer. -
     
(Eternity of Life)
      Life is divine Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit. Life is without beginning and without end. Eternity, not time, expresses the thought of Life, and time is no part of eternity. One ceases in proportion as the other is recognized. Time is finite; eternity is forever infinite. Life is neither in nor of matter. What is termed matter is unknown to Spirit, which includes in itself all substance and is Life eternal. Matter is a human concept. Life is divine Mind. Life is not limited. Death and finiteness are unknown to Life. If Life ever had a beginning, it would also have an ending.

       Adam: "Dust to dust"
      Lesson topic: MIND
