LIFE.

- Section 6 -

 

Hebrews 7:15,16
15 And it is yet far more evident:
for that after the similitude of
Melchisedec there ariseth another
priest,
16 Who is made, not after the law
of a carnal commandment, but after
the power of an endless life.

***
John 5:24
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that heareth my word, and believeth
on him that sent me, hath everlasting
life, and shall not come into
condemnation; but is passed from
death unto life.
John 6:40
40 And this is the will of him that
sent me, that every one which seeth
the Son, and believeth on him, may
have everlasting life: and I will
raise him up at the last day.

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.

(Illusive dreams)
Life is, like Christ, "the same yesterday, and to-day, and
forever." Organization and time have nothing to do with Life.

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

Question 8. - What is Life? 
ADAM = "dust to dust."

(Eternity of Life)
Question. - What is Life?
Answer. - 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.

For Christian Science brings to view
The great I Am,-
Omniscient power,- gleaming through
Mind, mother, man. 

And Love is reflected in love.

(Life eternal and present)
"This is life eternal," says Jesus, - is, not shall be; and
then he defines everlasting life as a present knowledge of his
Father and of himself, - the knowledge of Love, Truth, and Life.
"This is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true
God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent." The Scriptures say,
"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that
proceedeth out of the mouth of God," showing that Truth is the
actual life of man; but mankind objects to making this teaching
practical.

(Man reflects God)
The infinite never began nor will it ever end. Mind and its
formations can never be annihilated. Man is not a pendulum,
swinging between evil and good, joy and sorrow, sickness and
health, life and death. Life and its faculties are not measured by
calendars. The perfect and immortal are the eternal likeness of
their Maker.

246:27 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

(True life eternal)
Life is eternal. We should find this out, and begin the
demonstration thereof. Life and goodness are immortal. Let us
then shape our views of existence into loveliness, freshness, and
continuity, rather than into age and blight.

247:15 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

(Eternal beauty)
Immortal men and women are models of spiritual sense, drawn by
perfect Mind and reflecting those higher conceptions of loveliness
which transcend all material sense.
