Category: Ten Commandments

            The following excerpt is from the Red Book, compiled by Richard Oaks.  I have made a few changes to the writing.  [All of my comments will be in these types of brackets.]

                                                CHRISTMAS

            Isaiah 9:5 – “For unto us a child is born…”

            Over eighteen centuries ago, the advent of a babe stamped a new impress on history.
            Little dreamed the Emperor, enthroned in his gorgeous palace upon the Capitoline Hill, that a babe slumbering in a manger in the obscure hamlet of Bethlehem, a remote province of Assyria, was to establish an empire before which the power of the Caesars must dwindle into significance.  When the child Jesus was born, all the nations known of that period were in subjection to the government of Rome.  Around the Mediterranean shores were clustered the thronged provinces and majestic cities, that gave Rome the palm of dynasties.  The Atlantic Ocean was an unexplored sea.  The Indies had but a fabulous existence.  Rome was then the world, and Caesar was the governor of Rome.  He could do what he pleased with the property, the liberty and lives of over three hundred millions of people comprising the Roman Empire.
            Such power no mortal ever swayed before; such power no mortal will ever sway again.

True Independence

            The United States of America just celebrated Independence Day (2017).  This great country is set up to give men inalienable rights.  It has a Constitution stating these rights.  But, do men sometimes go too far in thinking they have a right to act in certain ways?  Are they misguided and misdirected?  Today there are groups on the left who call themselves anti-fascists.  What these people really are is pro-communism.  They have decided that it is okay to use violence against those they consider to be their enemies even though they may be fellow countrymen or neighbors.  So when they go out and protest (riot) they destroy property, hurt people, and they go up against the police.  Nor do they want to listen to the other’s viewpoint, because they are right (even though they are on the Left).  Some of them are even willing to spin the fable that their group has been infiltrated by their enemy and that it is their enemy who is doing all the damage and violence (but it is not so).  What they have really been infiltrated with are communist George Soros’ paid thugs.  This method (paying thugs to do violence) has been utilized since the Bolshevik riots in Russia (before communism took over the country).  It was the international (international means communism) bankers who paid the communists (Lenin and Trotsky) to hire the thugs and these international bankers paid for the communist revolution.  If the modern day thugs get arrested by the police (for doing wrong – breaking the law) they may find that their freedom is taken away from them, at least for a while.  I guess they are willing to loose their freedom.

THE THREE TABERNACLES – Part 2

CHAPTER 10 (Continued)

                                                         SCIENCE
             THE PARAMOUNT MATRIX (1894) – EARTH*STAR VOYAGER
                                    “THE EDIFICE – MOTHER’S CHURCH
                        “The First Tabernacle—“creation,” (S&H 517:9)

Shadowchurch

            In the drawing above of The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, it stands alone without the Extension.  Notice that there is the dove of divine Science descending down with a detached branch in its beak.  This matches the dove seen in the second drawing for the eleventh Illustration in Christ and Christmas titled THE WAY (seen below is part of THE WAY, as the dove is hard to make out in the full view I have of the Illustration).

            “The (little) Mother Church is the best interpreter of the limitations of ‘Mother.’  It is lighted by {a star with seven points of light, in the skylight of the auditorium (a picture of this skylight is seen further on)} …and the vestibule leading to Mother’s Room (the latter closed in 1908, Nov. 21, 1908, Sentinel), is also lighted by a seven pointed star {which I do not have a picture of}.” (p. 474)

Bird's Eye View

            Above is a drawing I did, several years ago (even before I saw a satellite photo of the Church) of the original Edifice in Boston.  I am not sure I am accurate with the directions in it either (without actually going there and knowing where true North is located at).  The skylight window is oversized.  In the center of the skylight is the seven-pointed Star, like the one seen in the Vestry.  Below is a close up of what Assembly would look like if it had taken place in the Disney movie Earth*Star Voyager.

Assembly

            To me the seven points of each star represents the seven synonymous terms for God:  Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  At this time I would like to insert a portion of a letter written by David Nolan in 2003 about Mother’s Room.

CROWNED WITH TWELVE STARGATES

            “And upon her head a crown of twelve stars” Rev. 12:1.

            They [the Twelve Tribes] are the lamps in the spiritual heavens of the age,” S&H 562:18.

“The Spiritual Idea” Part 1

            The Spiritual Idea Has Given the Understanding a Foothold in Christian Science.”  (SCIENCE AND HEALTH 534:30-535:1)

Joined or United?

            In Mary Baker Eddy’s illustrated poem Christ and Christmas there are two illustrations that I have been trying to differentiate between for quite some time – the fact that one presents the idea of being JOINED with CHRIST and one presents the idea of being UNITED with CHRIST. Just what is the difference? These two illustrations are the second illustration CHRIST HEALING and the ninth illustration CHRISTIAN UNITY (as seen below). Perhaps my answer lies in the seventh illustration SUFFER THE CHILDREN (also seen below) where the nymph is reading Science and Health Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy? Perhaps the answer lies here because the seventh illustration is located on Sharon’s Rose Matrix in the position of the Word as Christianity?

Arrangement In Science

The following is from John Doorly’s Talks on Science of the Bible Vol. 1. However, I have added interpolations and new insights into his works. As his book was from a lecture he gave in 1947, and we have had some sixty-three years of spiritual progress.

Is It Impossible to Obey the Ten Commandments?

Luke 15:8, 9 – Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, does not light a candle, and sweep the house and seek diligently till she find it?  And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
