IS THE UNIVERSE, INCLUDING MAN,

- Section 1 -

 

Genesis 1:1,2,6,7
1 In the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form,
and void; and darkness was upon the
face of the deep. And the Spirit of
God moved upon the face of the
waters.
6 #And God said, Let there be a
firmament in the midst of the waters,
and let it divide the waters from the
waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and
divided the waters which were under
the firmament from the waters which
were above the firmament: and it was
so.

***
Psalm 19:1
1 The heavens declare the glory of
God; and the firmament sheweth his
handywork.

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

(Right interpretation)
The universe, like man, is to be interpreted by Science from its
divine Principle, God, and then it can be understood; but when
explained on the basis of physical sense and represented as
subject to growth, maturity, and decay, the universe, like man,
is, and must continue to be, an enigma.


505:7 Chapter 15: Genesis

 

Chapter 15: Genesis
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

The Way

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



(Spiritual firmament)
Spiritual understanding, by which human conception, material
sense, is separated from Truth, is the firmament. The divine Mind,
not matter, creates all identities, and they are forms of Mind,
the ideas of Spirit apparent only as Mind, never as mindless
matter nor the so-called material senses.


479:18 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

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.

(Chaos and darkness)
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the
earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face
of the deep." (Genesis i. 1, 2.) In the vast forever, in the
Science and truth of being, the only facts are Spirit and its
innumerable creations. Darkness and chaos are the imaginary
opposites of light, understanding, and eternal harmony, and they
are the elements of nothingness.

(Mist, or false claim)
The creations of matter arise from a mist or false claim, or
from mystification, and not from the firmament, or understanding,
which God erects between the true and false. In error everything
comes from beneath, not from above. All is material myth, instead
of the reflection of Spirit.
