Psalm 42:11
11 Why art thou cast down, O my
soul? and why art thou disquieted
within me? hope thou in God: for I
shall yet praise him, who is the
health of my countenance, and my God.

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

196:11-14 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.

(Sin destroyed through suffering)
"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.

481:32-12 Chapter 14: Recapitulation


Chapter 14: Recapitulation
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

Truth versus error

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

Question 16. - Does brain think, and do nerves feel, and is
there intelligence in matter? 

ADAM = A product of nothing as the mimicry of something.

(Sense and pure Soul)
When reading the Scriptures, the substitution of the word
sense for soul gives the exact meaning in a majority of cases.

(Soul defined)
Human thought has adulterated the meaning of the word soul
through the hypothesis that soul is both an evil and a good
intelligence, resident in matter. The proper use of the word
soul can always be gained by substituting the word God, where
the deific meaning is required. In other cases, use the word
sense, and you will have the scientific signification. As used
in Christian Science, Soul is properly the synonym of Spirit, or
God; but out of Science, soul is identical with sense, with
material sensation.

215:4 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth


Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.

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.

Cardinal point 1 - Column 2 - Extended

(Real being never lost)
If Spirit, Soul, could sin or be lost, then being and
immortality would be lost, together with all the faculties of Mind;
but being cannot be lost while God exists. Soul and matter are at
variance from the very necessity of their opposite natures.
Mortals are unacquainted with the reality of existence, because
matter and mortality do not reflect the facts of Spirit.

285:15 Chapter 10: Science of Being


Chapter 10: Science of Being
Divine Science understood and acknowledged.  

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. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 3 - Extended

(Material misconceptions)
Is God a physical personality? Spirit is not physical. The
belief that a material body is man is a false conception of man.
The time has come for a finite conception of the infinite and of a
material body as the seat of Mind to give place to a diviner sense
of intelligence and its manifestations, - to the better
understanding that Science gives of the Supreme Being, or divine
Principle, and idea.
