LIFE.

- Section 3 -

 

John 3:5,6
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I
say unto thee, Except a man be born
of water and of the Spirit, he cannot
enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh
is flesh; and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.
John 1:1,4,11-13
1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
4 In him was life; and the life was
the light of men.
11 He came unto his own, and his
own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to
them gave he power to become the sons
of God, even to them that believe on
his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood,
nor of the will of the flesh, nor of
the will of man, but of God.

***
II Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore if any man be in
Christ, he is a new creature: old
things are passed away; behold, all
things are become new.

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.

(-32- Basis of health and immortality)
The basis of all health, sinlessness, and immortality is the
great fact that God is the only Mind; and this Mind must be not
merely believed, but it must be understood. To get rid of sin
through Science, is to divest sin of any supposed mind or reality,
and never to admit that sin can have intelligence or power, pain
or pleasure. You conquer error by denying its verity. Our
various theories will never lose their imaginary power for good or
evil, until we lose our faith in them and make life its own proof
of harmony and God.

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.

(The serpent of error)
Who shall say that man is alive to-day, but may be dead
to-morrow? What has touched Life, God, to such strange issues?
(Personal identity)
When you say, "Man's body is material," I say with Paul: Be
"willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with
the Lord." Give up your material belief of mind in matter, and
have but one Mind, even God; for this Mind forms its own likeness.

(Standpoints changed)
When understanding changes the standpoints of life and
intelligence from a material to a spiritual basis, we shall gain
the reality of Life, the control of Soul over sense, and we shall
perceive Christianity, or Truth, in its divine Principle.

289:31 Chapter 10: Science of Being

(Spiritual offspring)
Man is not the offspring of flesh, but of Spirit, - of Life, not
of matter. Because Life is God, Life must be eternal,
self-existent. Life is the everlasting I AM, the Being who was
and is and shall be, whom nothing can erase.
