John 1:1,2
1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning
with God.

***
Colossians 1:16,17
16 For by him were all things
created, that are in heaven, and that
are in earth, visible and invisible,
whether they be thrones, or
dominions, or principalities, or
powers: all things were created by
him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and
by him all things consist.

***
Psalm 33:4-9
4 For the word of the Lord is
right; and all his works are done in
truth.
5 He loveth righteousness and
judgment: the earth is full of the
goodness of the Lord.
6 By the word of the Lord were the
heavens made; and all the host of them
by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathereth the waters of the
sea together as an heap: he layeth up
the depth in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord:
let all the inhabitants of the world
stand in awe of him.
9 For he spake, and it was done; he
commanded, and it stood fast.

***
Hebrews 4:12,13
12 For the word of God is quick,
and powerful, and sharper than any
twoedged sword, piercing even to the
dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow, and is
a discerner of the thoughts and
intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature
that is not manifest in his sight:
but all things are naked and opened
unto the eyes of him with whom we
have to do.

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.

(Spirit the starting-point)
The starting-point of divine Science is that God, Spirit, is
All-in-all, and that there is no other might nor Mind, - that God
is Love, and therefore He is divine Principle.

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 divine corporeality)
The everlasting I AM is not bounded nor compressed within the
narrow limits of physical humanity, nor can He be understood
aright through mortal concepts. The precise form of God must be
of small importance in comparison with the sublime question, What
is infinite Mind or divine Love?


510:28 Chapter 15: Genesis

 

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

The Way 

oooo

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



(Spiritual subdivision)
Science reveals only one Mind, and this one shining by its own
light and governing the universe, including man, in perfect
harmony. This Mind forms ideas, its own images, subdivides and
radiates their borrowed light, intelligence, and so explains the
Scripture phrase, "whose seed is in itself." Thus God's ideas
"multiply and replenish the earth." The divine Mind supports the
sublimity, magnitude, and infinitude of spiritual creation.


591:16 Chapter 17: Glossary

(MIND)
MIND. The only I, or Us; the only Spirit, Soul, divine
Principle, substance, Life, Truth, Love; the one God; not that
which is in man, but the divine Principle, or God, of whom man
is the full and perfect expression; Deity, which outlines but is
not outlined.


143:26-31 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine

 

Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially. 

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



(Impossible coalescence)
Mind is the grand creator, and there can be no power except that
which is derived from Mind. If Mind was first chronologically, is
first potentially, and must be first eternally, then give to Mind
the glory, honor, dominion, and power everlastingly due its holy
name.


283:4-7 Chapter 10: Science of Being

(Source of all life and action)
Mind is the source of all movement, and there is no inertia to
retard or check its perpetual and harmonious action. Mind is the
same Life, Love, and wisdom "yesterday, and to-day, and forever."
