1 And after these things I saw
another angel come down from heaven,
having great power; and the earth was
lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a
strong voice, saying, Babylon the
great is fallen, is fallen, and is
become the habitation of devils, and
the hold of every foul spirit, and a
cage of every unclean and hateful
21 And a mighty angel took up a
stone like a great millstone, and
cast it into the sea, saying, Thus
with violence shall that great city
Babylon be thrown down, and shall be
found no more at all.
23 And the light of a candle shall
shine no more at all in thee; and the
voice of the bridegroom and of the
bride shall be heard no more at all
in thee: for thy merchants were the
great men of the earth; for by thy
sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood
of prophets, and of saints, and of
all that were slain upon the earth.
19 And I saw the beast, and the
kings of the earth, and their armies,
gathered together to make war against
him that sat on the horse, and
against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and
with him the false prophet that
wrought miracles before him, with
which he deceived them that had
received the mark of the beast, and
them that worshipped his image. These
both were cast alive into a lake of
fire burning with brimstone.
178:22 Chapter 7: Physiology
Chapter 7: Physiology
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.
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.

(Animal magnetism destroyed)
In proportion to our understanding of Christian Science, we are
freed from the belief of heredity, of mind in matter or animal
magnetism; and we disarm sin of its imaginary power in proportion
to our spiritual understanding of the status of immortal being.
569:14-28 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse
Chapter 16: Apocalypse
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...
|And he that overcometh, and keepeth my|
works unto the end, to him will I give
power over the nations:
And I will give him the MORNING STAR.
For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

(The robe of Science)
Alas for those who break faith with divine Science and fail to
strangle the serpent of sin as well as of sickness! They are
dwellers still in the deep darkness of belief. They are in the
surging sea of error, not struggling to lift their heads above the
(Expiation by suffering)
What must the end be? They must eventually expiate their sin
through 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.
571:22-31 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse
(Pure religion enthroned)
Through trope and metaphor, the Revelator, immortal scribe of
Spirit and of a true idealism, furnishes the mirror in which
mortals may see their own image. In significant figures he
depicts the thoughts which he beholds in mortal mind. Thus he
rebukes the conceit of sin, and foreshadows its doom. With his
spiritual strength, he has opened wide the gates of glory, and
illumined the night of paganism with the sublime grandeur of
divine Science, outshining sin, sorcery, lust, and hypocrisy.
572:3-6 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse
(Native nothingness of sin)
Thus we see, in both the first and last books of the Bible, - in
Genesis and in the Apocalypse, - that sin is to be Christianly and
scientifically reduced to its native nothingness.
