CHURCH and GOVERNMENT

            I am not sure who first said these famous words:  “World affairs reflect church affairs.”  This means, that it is not the world affairs (man’s government of mortal laws) effecting material churches (material organizations) or even the divine Church (that which “rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle”), and this is an important point to remember.

            Church.  The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.
            “The Church is that institution [which can be a textbook], which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick.” (S&H 583:12-19; [My interpolation.])

            Question. — Is there more than one God or Principle [government]?
            Answer. — There is not.  Principle and its idea is one, and this one is God, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent Being, and His reflection is man and the universe.  Omni is adopted from the Latin adjective signifying all.  Hence God combines all-power or potency, all-science or true knowledge, all-presence.  The varied manifestations of Christian Science indicate Mind, never matter, and have one Principle. (S&H 465:16-466:6; [My interpolation.])

Judge Hanna’s Christ and Christmas – Part 6

MRS. EDDY’S EXPLANATION OF THE ILLUSTRATED POEM “CHRIST AND CHRISTMAS”  AS GIVEN BY JUDGE SEPTIMUS J. HANNA    Part 6

We are now ready to take our fifth step up on the Major Pyramid Matrix of Truth to its apex capstone.  This illustration is different from the rest of the illustrations because it fills the tone of Truth on the Side of Life and the Side of Light.  I feel that the first illustration drawn for the earlier edition may have had an old woman in the bed.  It could be an old man, but I am not sure about it.  I know for sure, after reading Recollections of Mary Baker Eddy by James F. Gilman, that the person in the bed of the first illustration was meant to be a man.  There is no doubt that the later edition is of an old man because he has a beard.  Was the man changed because having a beard meant that he was more seriously ill?  There certainly is more medicine on the table in the later illustration.  Also, the first illustration has a dark mantle on Mary Baker Eddy (as Jesus is depicted having), while in the later illustrations her mantle is white.  On the Side of Life her mantle is black, while on the Side of Light her mantle is white.  I think this is due to the fact that the dark mantle is symbolic of material organization which is bound to the Letter of the Law because man is BELIEVED to be a sinner.  It is this false teaching of scholastic theology that Mary Baker Eddy must heal – the belief  that man has fallen and cannot get up – cannot get to  heaven.  The white mantle, on the other side, symbolizes the spiritual system of Scientific understanding which demonstrates the Spirit of the Law resulting in Christian Science Healing.

Dream Visions from 1996

DREAMS – Early March to April 17, 1996

     I had a vision dream where I was feeding my son a banana.  I peeled it; inside the fruit sprouted another banana.  Then a construction worker came in and took the banana out of my hand and fed it to my mother-in-law.

The Ancient War On Women

THE ARTICLE, JESUS and PAUL, the TWO WITNESSES, and the MOST IMPORTANT WOMAN OF ALL

     A few months ago I received a Jehovah’s Witness publication for September 1, 2012, called The WATCHTOWER.  In it was an article called “Does God Care About Women?”  I would like to quote from it, as I feel that it is a good article, especially since there has been the claim that there is a war on women being waged in this year’s politics.  The article begins with two quotes that are not from the Bible.
     “Sin began with a woman, and thanks to her we must all die.” – Ecclesiasticus, Second Century B.C.E.
     You are the devil’s gateway:  you are the unsealer of that forbidden tree:  you are the first deserter of the divine law…You destroyed so easily God’s image, man.” – Tertullian, on the Apparel of Women, Second Century C.E.
