TRUTH.

- Section 5 -

 

John 17:1,6,8,17-19
1 These words spake Jesus, and
lifted up his eyes to heaven, and
said, Father, the hour is come;
glorify thy Son, that thy Son also
may glorify thee:
6 I have manifested thy name unto
the men which thou gavest me out of
the world: thine they were, and thou
gavest them me; and they have kept
thy word.
8 For I have given unto them the
words which thou gavest me; and they
have received them, and have known
surely that I came out from thee, and
they have believed that thou didst
send me.
17 Sanctify them through thy truth:
thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the
world, even so have I also sent them
into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify
myself, that they also might be
sanctified through the truth.

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. *

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

Forever present, bounteous, free, 
Christ comes in gloom; 
And aye, with grace towards you and me, 
For health makes room. 

Give us this day our daily bread.

(Inadequate theories of creation)
Eternal Truth is changing the universe. As mortals drop off
their mental swaddling-clothes, thought expands into expression.
"Let there be light," is the perpetual demand of Truth and Love,
changing chaos into order and discord into the music of the
spheres.

(Annihilation of error)
Truth has no consciousness of error. Love has no sense of
hatred. Life has no partnership with death. Truth, Life, and
Love are a law of annihilation to everything unlike themselves,
because they declare nothing except God.


292:7-10 Chapter 10: Science of Being

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.

(Primitive error)
Truth will be to us "the resurrection and the life" only as it
destroys all error and the belief that Mind, the only immortality
of man, can be fettered by the body, and Life be controlled by
death.

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 13. - Is there no sin? 
ADAM = The opposite of Spirit and His creations.

(Truth destroys falsity)
Despite the hallowing influence of Truth in the destruction of
error, must error still be immortal? Truth spares all that is
true. If evil is real, Truth must make it so; but error, not
Truth, is the author of the unreal, and the unreal vanishes, while
all that is real is eternal. The apostle says that the mission of
Christ is to "destroy the works of the devil." Truth destroys
falsity and error, for light and darkness cannot dwell together.
Light extinguishes the darkness, and the Scripture declares that
there is "no night there."
