Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Ps 139:7-12
Be wholly absorbed in the work of gaining daily more understanding of God. Then personal ambition, envy, desire to be in this or that place, cannot use you. Personal ambition has no place in a Christian’s thought or life. He is wholly occupied in the loving, humble purpose to do good, and to prove that good is all that can govern thought, action, condition, or being. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.35)
THE SECOND DEATH
Revelation 20 – 8
Verse 12. Thus we are enabled to see “the dead stand before God,”— dead because of the belief of good and evil — alive because of the message of Science and Health, for the ideas of Mind are they which were dead and yet live, and whose name have been written in the book of Life from the beginning. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.69-70)
How does Science bless the whole human family? 103:6-9
Neither mesmerism, hypnotism, theosophy, esoteric magic nor wicked mental or audible arguments can affect me. God governs me. Justice, Truth, Love govern us, and nothing else can or does affect us in the least.
(Thrice each day from one half to one hour.)
Then have faith in God. Know that faith as a grain of mustard seed can remove mountains, and have no faith in evil. Know that it cannot do anything, that it is nothing. Know that God is all. The wrath of man shall praise Thee and the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain. All things work together for good to them that love God. See I Thess 5. Mary Baker Eddy
(Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.74)
THE SECOND DEATH
Revelation 20 – 7
Verse 11. The constant handling of M. A. M. enables the student of divine Science to discern the great white throne of pure good, and Him that sits upon it is Love, from whose face the heaven and earth of mortal mind — the beliefs of good and evil — flee away and no place is found for them, for they are not. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.69)
What shall happen when we cry out to God? Ps 56:9
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth:
5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
151 Thou art near, O Lord; and all thy commandments are truth.
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
12 Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.
30 I have chosen the way of truth:
8 we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
