I John 2:27
27 But the anointing which ye have
received of him abideth in you, and ye
need not that any man teach you: but
as the same anointing teacheth you of
all things, and is truth, and is no
lie, and even as it hath taught you,
ye shall abide in him.

I Timothy 2:1,3,4
1 I exhort therefore, that, first
of all, supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks,
be made for all men;
3 For this is good and acceptable
in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be
saved, and to come unto the knowledge
of the truth.

Christmas Eve (2)

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

Cardinal point 3 - Column 2 - Extended

(Opacity of the senses)
Truth is a revelation.
(Leaven of Truth)
Jesus bade his disciples beware of the leaven of the Pharisees
and of the Sadducees, which he defined as human doctrines. His
parable of the "leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened," impels the
inference that the spiritual leaven signifies the Science of
Christ and its spiritual interpretation, - an inference far above
the merely ecclesiastical and formal applications of the
Did not this parable point a moral with a prophecy, foretelling
the second appearing in the flesh of the Christ, Truth, hidden in
sacred secrecy from the visible world?
Ages pass, but this leaven of Truth is ever at work. It must
destroy the entire mass of error, and so be eternally glorified in
man's spiritual freedom.

545:27-32 Chapter 15: Genesis


Chapter 15: Genesis
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

The Way 

No blight, no broken wing, no moan, 
Truth's fane can dim; 
Eternal swells Christ's music-tone, 
In heaven's hymn. 

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Cardinal point 2 - Column 4 - Extended

(Erroneous standpoint)
Truth has but one reply to all error, - to sin, sickness, and
death: "Dust [nothingness] thou art, and unto dust [nothingness]
shalt thou return."
(Mortality mythical)
"As in Adam [error] all die, even so in Christ [Truth] shall all
be made alive."
