Galatians 6:7,8
7 Be not deceived; God is not
mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh
shall of the flesh reap corruption;
but he that soweth to the Spirit
shall of the Spirit reap life

Matthew 7:1,2
1 Judge not, that ye be not
2 For with what judgment ye judge,
ye shall be judged: and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be measured
to you again.
Matthew 10:28
28 And fear not them which kill the
body, but are not able to kill the
soul: but rather fear him which is
able to destroy both soul and body in

542:21-22 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.

(Retribution and remorse)
Sin will receive its full penalty, both for what it is and for
what it does.

537:14(begin Sin) Chapter 15: Genesis

(Justice and recompense)
Sin is its own punishment. Truth guards the gateway to harmony.
Error tills its own barren soil and buries itself in the ground,
since ground and dust stand for nothingness.

10:31-32 Chapter 1: Prayer

(Asking amiss)
Do you ask wisdom to be merciful and not to punish sin?

11:8 Chapter 1: Prayer

(Remission of penalty)
The moral law, which has the right to acquit or condemn, always
demands restitution before mortals can "go up higher." Broken law
brings penalty in order to compel this progress.

196:6-19 Chapter 7: Physiology


Chapter 7: Physiology
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.

Christmas Morn

Yet wherefore signalize the birth 
Of him ne'er born? 
What can rehearse the glorious worth 
Of his high morn? 

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Cardinal point 2 - Column 2 - Extended

(Sin destroyed through suffering)
Better the suffering which awakens mortal mind from its fleshly
dream, than the false pleasures which tend to perpetuate this
dream. Sin alone brings death, for sin is the only element of
"Fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell,"
said Jesus. A careful study of this text shows that here the word
soul means a false sense or material consciousness. The command
was a warning to beware, not of Rome, Satan, nor of God, but of
sin. Sickness, sin, and death are not concomitants of Life or
Truth. No law supports them. They have no relation to God
wherewith to establish their power. Sin makes its own hell, and
goodness its own heaven.

405:17 Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice


Chapter 12: Christian Science Practice
Divine Science understood and acknowledged. 

Christian Unity (1) 

For Christian Science brings to view
The great I Am,-
Omniscient power,- gleaming through
Mind, mother, man. 

And Love is reflected in love. 

Cardinal point 1 - Column 3 - Extended

(Mental conspirators)
"Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." The good
man finally can overcome his fear of sin. This is sin's
necessity, - to destroy itself. Immortal man demonstrates the
government of God, good, in which is no power to sin.

37:1 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist


Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist
The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality. 

Christ Healing (1)

In tender mercy, Spirit sped 
A loyal ray 
To rouse the living, wake the dead, 
And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 1 - Extended

(Vicarious suffering)
Does not Science show that sin brings suffering as much to-day
as yesterday? They who sin must suffer. "With what measure ye
mete, it shall be measured to you again."
