Christian Science Bible Lessons
- Section 2 -
(Mind's idea faultless)
God, Spirit, dwelling in infinite light and harmony from which
emanates the true idea, is never reflected by aught but the good.
504:9,27-31 Chapter 15: Genesis
(Light preceding the sun)
This light is not from the sun nor from volcanic flames, but it
is the revelation of Truth and of spiritual ideas. This also
shows that there is no place where God's light is not seen, since
Truth, Life, and Love fill immensity and are ever-present. Was
not this a revelation instead of a creation?
(Spirit versus darkness)
Did infinite Mind create matter, and call it light? Spirit is
light, and the contradiction of Spirit is matter, darkness, and
darkness obscures light. Material sense is nothing but a
supposition of the absence of Spirit.
596:11-19 Chapter 17: Glossary
The rabbins believed that the stones in the breast-plate of the
high-priest had supernatural illumination, but Christian Science
reveals Spirit, not matter, as the illuminator of all. The
illuminations of Science give us a sense of the nothingness of
error, and they show the spiritual inspiration of Love and Truth
to be the only fit preparation for admission to the presence and
power of the Most High.
509:17 Chapter 15: Genesis
(Rarefaction of thought)
The light of spiritual understanding gives gleams of the
infinite only, even as nebulae indicate the immensity of space.
510:4,9 Chapter 15: Genesis
(Spiritual ideas apprehended)
To discern the rhythm of Spirit and to be holy, thought must be
Truth and Love enlighten the understanding, in whose "light
shall we see light;" and this illumination is reflected
spiritually by all who walk in the light and turn away from a
false material sense.
