Isaiah 63:16
16 Doubtless thou art our father,
though Abraham be ignorant of us, and
Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O
Lord, art our father, our redeemer;
thy name is from everlasting.

Luke 11:11,13
11 If a son shall ask bread of any
of you that is a father, will he give
him a stone? or if he ask a fish,
will he for a fish give him a
13 If ye then, being evil, know how
to give good gifts unto your
children: how much more shall your
heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit
to them that ask him?

Matthew 5:48
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as
your Father which is in heaven is

586:9 Chapter 17: Glossary

FATHER. Eternal Life; the one Mind; the divine Principle,
commonly called God.

6:3 Chapter 1: Prayer

(Pardon and amendment)
Divine Love corrects and governs man. Men may pardon, but this

36:7 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist


Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist
The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality.

And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 1 - Extended

(Final purpose)
Escape from punishment is not in accordance with God's
government, since justice is the handmaid of mercy.

31:4 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

(Fleshly ties temporal)
Jesus acknowledged no ties of the flesh. He said: "Call no man
your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in
heaven." Again he asked: "Who is my mother, and who are my
brethren," implying that it is they who do the will of his Father.
We have no record of his calling any man by the name of father.
He recognized Spirit, God, as the only creator, and therefore as
the Father of all.
