MORTALS AND IMMORTALS.

- Section 5 -

 

II Corinthians 5:1-4
1 For we know that if our earthly
house of this tabernacle were
dissolved, we have a building of God,
an house not made with hands, eternal
in the heavens.
2 For in this we groan, earnestly
desiring to be clothed upon with our
house which is from heaven:
3 If so be that being clothed we
shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this
tabernacle do groan, being burdened:
not for that we would be unclothed,
but clothed upon, that mortality
might be swallowed up of life.

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.

(God's man discerned)
The Christlike understanding of scientific being and divine
healing includes a perfect Principle and idea, - perfect God and
perfect man, - as the basis of thought and demonstration.
(The divine image not lost)
If man was once perfect but has now lost his perfection, then
mortals have never beheld in man the reflex image of God. The
lost image is no image. The true likeness cannot be lost in
divine reflection. Understanding this, Jesus said: "Be ye
therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is
perfect."

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.

(Man reflects God)
The perfect and immortal are the eternal likeness of their
Maker. Man is by no means a material germ rising from the
imperfect and endeavoring to reach Spirit above his origin. The
stream rises no higher than its source.

(Spiritual discovery)
The conceptions of mortal, erring thought must give way to the
ideal of all that is perfect and eternal. Through many
generations human beliefs will be attaining diviner conceptions,
and the immortal and perfect model of God's creation will finally
be seen as the only true conception of being.

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.

(Mortals unlike immortals)
Mortals are not like immortals, created in God's own image; but
infinite Spirit being all, mortal consciousness will at last yield
to the scientific fact and disappear, and the real sense of being,
perfect and forever intact, will appear.
