Romans 7:22,23
22 For I delight in the law of God
after the inward man:
23 But I see another law in my
members, warring against the law of
my mind, and bringing me into
captivity to the law of sin which is
in my members.
Romans 8:5-9,14
5 For they that are after the flesh
do mind the things of the flesh; but
they that are after the Spirit the
things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is
death; but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity
against God: for it is not subject to
the law of God, neither indeed can
8 So then they that are in the
flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but
in the Spirit, if so be that the
Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if
any man have not the Spirit of
Christ, he is none of his.
14 For as many as are led by the
Spirit of God, they are the sons of

262:27 Chapter 9: Creation

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.

(Mind the only cause)
The foundation of mortal discord is a false sense of man's
origin. To begin rightly is to end rightly. Every concept which
seems to begin with the brain begins falsely. Divine Mind is the
only cause or Principle of existence. Cause does not exist in
matter, in mortal mind, or in physical forms.

114:1-6 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

(Definition of mortal mind)
Usage classes both evil and good together as mind; therefore,
to be understood, the author calls sick and sinful humanity
mortal mind, - meaning by this term the flesh opposed to Spirit,
the human mind and evil in contradistinction to the divine Mind,
or Truth and good.

115:9 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine

(Philologocal inadequacy)
The great difficulty is to give the right impression, when
translating material terms back into the original spiritual

115:12-10 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine


(Divine synonyms)
GOD: Divine Principle, Life, Truth, Love, Soul, Spirit, Mind.

(Divine image)
MAN: God's spiritual idea, individual, perfect, eternal.

(Divine reflection)
IDEA: An image in Mind; the immediate object of understanding. -


First Degree: Depravity.

PHYSICAL. Evil beliefs, passions and appetites, fear, depraved
will, self-justification, pride, envy, deceit, hatred, revenge,
sin, sickness, disease, death.

Second Degree: Evil beliefs disappearing.

(Transitional qualities)
MORAL. Humanity, honesty, affection, compassion, hope, faith,
meekness, temperance.

Third Degree: Understanding.

SPIRITUAL. Wisdom, purity, spiritual understanding, spiritual
power, love, health, holiness.

(Spiritual universe)
In the third degree mortal mind disappears, and man as God's
image appears. Science so reverses the evidence before the
corporeal human senses, as to make this Scriptural testimony true
in our hearts, "The last shall be first, and the first last," so
that God and His idea may be to us what divinity really is and must
of necessity be, - all-inclusive.
