GOD THE PRESERVER OF MAN.

- Section 2 -

 

Genesis 1:26,27
26 #And God said, Let us make man
in our image, after our likeness: and
let them have dominion over the fish
of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over the cattle, and over
all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the
earth.
27 So God created man in his own
image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them.


***
John 10:25,30
25 Jesus answered them, I told you,
and ye believed not: the works that I
do in my Father's name, they bear
witness of me.
30 I and my Father are one.

***
Matthew 5:48
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as
your Father which is in heaven is
perfect.

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.

(Definition of man)
The Science of being reveals man as perfect, even as the Father
is perfect, because the Soul, or Mind, of the spiritual man is
God, the divine Principle of all being, and because this real man
is governed by Soul instead of sense, by the law of Spirit, not by
the so-called laws of matter.

304:14 Chapter 10: Science of Being

(Man inseparable from Love)
The perfect man - governed by God, his perfect Principle - is
sinless and eternal.


470:21-23 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

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 10. - What is Mind? 
ADAM = Nothingness.
+



(Indestructible relationship)
God is the creator of man, and, the divine Principle of man
remaining perfect, the divine idea or reflection, man, remains
perfect.

475:28-31 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

Question 14. - What is man? 
ADAM = That which is not the image and likeness of good, but a 
material belief, opposed to the one Mind, or Spirit.

+


(Man unfallen)
Man is incapable of sin, sickness, and death. The real man
cannot depart from holiness, nor can God, by whom man is evolved,
engender the capacity or freedom to sin.

481:2 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

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.
+


(Vapor and nothingness)
Man is tributary to God, Spirit, and to nothing else. God's
being is infinity, freedom, harmony, and boundless bliss. "Where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." Like the
archpriests of yore, man is free "to enter into the holiest," -
the realm of God.


516:19 Chapter 15: Genesis

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.

Cardinal point 2 - Column 4 - Extended



(Love imparts beauty)
Man, made in His likeness, possesses and reflects God's dominion
over all the earth. Man and woman as coexistent and eternal with
God forever reflect, in glorified quality, the infinite
Father-Mother God.
