John 8:44, New King James Version (NKJV)44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
Eddy: “Devil. Evil; a lie; error; neither corporeality nor mind; the opposite of Truth; a belief in sin, sickness, and death; animal magnetism or hypnotism ….” And, “Love and Truth make free, but evil and error lead into captivity.”
Evil = a lie, a deflection from TRUTH. All problems are deflections of inviolate, unsurpassable TRUTH/GOODNESS. We pertain to supreme HARMONY/LOVE. This comprehension augments our good and banishes evil/discord. Great results ensue when we understand and declare, “Sinful and sickly mortality, you have always been a lie, fathered by the lie of materiality. Your attempt to deceive me is nullified because I am aligned with TRUTH. You cannot destroy or harm me because I am awake to the sovereignty of GOOD/LOVE. My spiritual understanding unmasks and vanquishes all lies, and asserts illimitable SPIRIT-GOOD.”
John 8:3-11, The Message (MSG)
3-6The religion scholars and Pharisees led in a woman who had been caught in an act of adultery. They stood her in plain sight of everyone and said, "Teacher, this woman was caught red-handed in the act of adultery. Moses, in the Law, gives orders to stone such persons. What do you say?" They were trying to trap him into saying something incriminating so they could bring charges against him. 6-8Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger in the dirt. They kept at him, badgering him. He straightened up and said, "The sinless one among you, go first: Throw the stone." Bending down again, he wrote some more in the dirt. 9-10Hearing that, they walked away, one after another, beginning with the oldest. The woman was left alone. Jesus stood up and spoke to her. "Woman, where are they? Does no one condemn you?" 11"No one, Master." "Neither do I," said Jesus. "Go on your way. From now on, don't sin."
Eddy: “I am Spirit. Man, whose senses are spiritual, is my likeness. He reflects the infinite understanding, for I am Infinity. The beauty of holiness, the perfection of being, imperishable glory, -- all are Mine, for I am Truth. I include and impart all bliss, for I am Love.”
Unfathomable and preeminent GOOD/SOUL subsumes our constitution, and this unity makes it outstanding and glorious. Ignorance, sin, guilt, failure and illness are eradicated by the understanding of our intrinsic, celestial wholeness.
