IS THE UNIVERSE, INCLUDING MAN,

- Section 2 -

 

Proverbs 8:1,4,20-25
1 Doth not wisdom cry? and
understanding put forth her voice?
4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my
voice is to the sons of man.
20 I lead in the way of
righteousness, in the midst of the
paths of judgment:
21 That I may cause those that love
me to inherit substance; and I will
fill their treasures.
22 The Lord possessed me in the
beginning of his way, before his
works of old.
23 I was set up from everlasting,
from the beginning, or ever the earth
was.
24 When there were no depths, I was
brought forth; when there were no
fountains abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains were
settled, before the hills was I
brought forth:

***
John 8:56-58
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to
see my day: and he saw it, and was
glad.
57 Then said the Jews unto him,
Thou art not yet fifty years old, and
hast thou seen Abraham?
58 Jesus said unto them, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Before
Abraham was, I am.

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.

(-13- The divine Principle and idea)
The divine image, idea, or Christ was, is, and ever will be
inseparable from the divine Principle, God. Jesus referred to this
unity of his spiritual identity thus: "Before Abraham was, I am;"
"I and my Father are one;" "My Father is greater than I." The one
Spirit includes all identities.
(-14- Spiritual oneness)
XIV. By these sayings Jesus meant, not that the human Jesus was
or is eternal, but that the divine idea or Christ was and is so
and therefore antedated Abraham; not that the corporeal Jesus was
one with the Father, but that the spiritual idea, Christ, dwells
forever in the bosom of the Father, God, from which it illumines
heaven and earth; not that the Father is greater than Spirit,
which is God, but greater, infinitely greater, than the fleshly
Jesus, whose earthly career was brief.

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.

(Renewed selfhood)
Mind is not the author of matter, and the creator of ideas is
not the creator of illusions. Either there is no omnipotence, or
omnipotence is the only power. God is the infinite, and infinity
never began, will never end, and includes nothing unlike God.
Whence then is soulless matter?
(Illusive dreams)
Life is, like Christ, "the same yesterday, and to-day, and
forever."

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.

Cardinal point 3 - Column 2 - Extended



(Science and Christianity)
If God, the All-in-all, be the creator of the spiritual
universe, including man, then everything entitled to a
classification as truth, or Science, must be comprised in a
knowledge or understanding of God, for there can be nothing beyond
illimitable divinity.
