Genesis 46:26,27
26 All the souls that came with
Jacob into Egypt, which came out of
his loins, besides Jacob's sons'
wives, all the souls were threescore
and six;
27 And the sons of Joseph, which
were born him in Egypt, were two
souls: all the souls of the house of
Jacob, which came into Egypt, were
threescore and ten.

Acts 2:41
41 #Then they that gladly received
his word were baptized: and the same
day there were added unto them about
three thousand souls.

466:7-26 Chapter 14: Recapitulation


Chapter 14: Recapitulation
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

Truth versus error

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 4. - What are spirits and souls? 
ADAM = Evil.

(Real versus unreal)
Question. - What are spirits and souls?
Answer. - To human belief, they are personalities constituted
of mind and matter, life and death, truth and error, good and
evil; but these contrasting pairs of terms represent contraries,
as Christian Science reveals, which neither dwell together nor
assimilate. Truth is immortal; error is mortal. Truth is
limitless; error is limited. Truth is intelligent; error is
non-intelligent. Moreover, Truth is real, and error is unreal.
This last statement contains the point you will most reluctantly
admit, although first and last it is the most important to
(Mankind redeemed)
The term souls or spirits is as improper as the term gods.
Soul or Spirit signifies Deity and nothing else. There is no
finite soul nor spirit. Soul or Spirit means only one Mind, and
cannot be rendered in the plural. Heathen mythology and Jewish
theology have perpetuated the fallacy that intelligence, soul, and
life can be in matter; and idolatry and ritualism are the outcome
of all man-made beliefs.

263:27 Chapter 9: Creation


Chapter 9: Creation
Divine Science understood and acknowledged.   

Christian Science Healing (2)

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.

(No new creation)
The multiplication of a human and mortal sense of persons and
things is not creation. A sensual thought, like an atom of dust
thrown into the face of spiritual immensity, is dense blindness
instead of a scientific eternal consciousness of creation.

318:32 Chapter 10: Science of Being


Chapter 10: Science of Being
Divine Science understood and acknowledged.  

I thank Thee O Father,...

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. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 3 - Extended

(Sickness as discord)
The body does not include soul, but manifests mortality, a false
sense of soul. The delusion that there is life in matter has no
kinship with the Life supernal.

335:16-18 Chapter 10: Science of Being - [PLATFORM]

(-19- Soul and Spirit one)
XIX. Soul and Spirit being one, God and Soul are one, and this
one never included in a limited mind or a limited body.
