EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT.

- Section 5 -

 

Hosea 2:19,20
19 And I will betroth thee unto me
for ever; yea, I will betroth thee
unto me in righteousness, and in
judgment, and in lovingkindness, and
in mercies.
20 I will even betroth thee unto me
in faithfulness: and thou shalt know
the Lord.

***
Romans 8:1,2
1 THERE is therefore now no
condemnation to them which are in
Christ Jesus, who walk not after the
flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life
in Christ Jesus hath made me free
from the law of sin and death.

***
I Corinthians 15:58
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren,
be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always
abounding in the work of the Lord,
forasmuch as ye know that your labour
is not in vain in the Lord.

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.

(Radical changes)
The time is not distant when the ordinary theological views of
atonement will undergo a great change, - a change as radical as
that which has come over popular opinions in regard to
predestination and future punishment.


242:1-5(to .) Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(Spiritual baptism)
Through repentance, spiritual baptism, and regeneration, mortals
put off their material beliefs and false individuality. It is
only a question of time when "they shall all know Me [God], from
the least of them unto the greatest."

Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(-30- Divine pardon)
XXX. The destruction of sin is the divine method of pardon.
Divine Life destroys death, Truth destroys error, and Love
destroys hate. Being destroyed, sin needs no other form of
forgiveness. Does not God's pardon, destroying any one sin,
prophesy and involve the final destruction of all sin?


569:21 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse

Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my

For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

(Expiation by suffering)
The sin, which one has made his bosom companion, comes back to
him at last with accelerated force, for the devil knoweth his time
is short. Here the Scriptures declare that evil is temporal, not
eternal. The dragon is at last stung to death by his own malice;
but how many periods of torture it may take to remove all sin,
must depend upon sin's obduracy.


233:8-22 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

(Perfection gained slowly)
In the midst of imperfection, perfection is seen and
acknowledged only by degrees. The ages must slowly work up to
perfection. How long it must be before we arrive at the
demonstration of scientific being, no man knoweth, - not even "the
Son but the Father;" but the false claim of error continues its
delusions until the goal of goodness is assiduously earned and
won.
(Christ's mission)
Already the shadow of His right hand rests upon the hour. Ye
who can discern the face of the sky, - the sign material, - how
much more should ye discern the sign mental, and compass the
destruction of sin and sickness by overcoming the thoughts which
produce them, and by understanding the spiritual idea which
corrects and destroys them.

(The Christ-element)
The eternal Truth destroys what mortals seem to have learned
from error, and man's real existence as a child of God comes to
light. Truth demonstrated is eternal life.
