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.

(Life all-inclusive)
Jesus said (John viii. 51), "If a man keep my saying, he shall
never see death." That statement is not confined to spiritual
life, but includes all the phenomena of existence. Jesus
demonstrated this, healing the dying and raising the dead. Mortal
mind must part with error, must put off itself with its deeds, and
immortal manhood, the Christ ideal, will appear. Faith should
enlarge its borders and strengthen its base by resting upon Spirit
instead of matter. When man gives up his belief in death, he will
advance more rapidly towards God, Life, and Love. Belief in
sickness and death, as certainly as belief in sin, tends to shut
out the true sense of Life and health. When will mankind wake to
this great fact in Science?

324:32-19 Chapter 10: Science of Being


Chapter 10: Science of Being
Divine Science understood and acknowledged.  

I thank Thee O Father,...

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 3 - Extended

(Abiding in Life)
Jesus said substantially, "He that believeth in me shall not see
death." That is, he who perceives the true idea of Life loses his
belief in death. He who has the true idea of good loses all sense
of evil, and by reason of this is being ushered into the undying
realities of Spirit. Such a one abideth in Life, - life obtained
not of the body incapable of supporting life, but of Truth,
unfolding its own immortal idea. Jesus gave the true idea of
being, which results in infinite blessings to mortals.
(Indestructible being)
In Colossians (iii. 4) Paul writes: "When Christ, who is our
life, shall appear [be manifested], then shall ye also appear [be
manifested] with him in glory." When spiritual being is understood
in all its perfection, continuity, and might, then shall man be
found in God's image. The absolute meaning of the apostolic words
is this: Then shall man be found, in His likeness, perfect as the
Father, indestructible in Life, "hid with Christ in God," - with
Truth in divine Love, where human sense hath not seen man.
