Job 33:4 (New King James Version)
4 The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.Eddy: “Nothing cut Spirit, Soul, can evolve Life, for Spirit is more than all else.”
SPIRIT-SOUL determines, energizes and individualizes all being. We are the flowering of LIFE-SPIRIT's superabundant health, intelligence, substance and love.
Acts 17:22-25 (GOD’S WORD Translation)
22Paul stood in the middle of the court and said, “Men of Athens, I see that you are very religious. 23As I was going through your city and looking closely at the objects you worship, I noticed an altar with this written on it: ‘To an unknown god.’ I’m telling you about the unknown god you worship. 24The God who made the universe and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth. He doesn’t live in shrines made by humans, 25and he isn’t served by humans as if he needed anything. He gives everyone life, breath, and everything they have.
M. B. Eddy: “We should consecrate existence, not ‘to the unknown God’ whom we ‘ignorantly worship,’ but to the eternal builder, the everlasting Father, to the Life which mortal sense cannot impair nor mortal belief destroy. We must realize the ability of mental might to offset human misconceptions and to replace them with the life which is spiritual, not material.”
SPIRIT’s ever-unfolding grandeur, not material evolution, gives us interminable and vibrant life, immutable love and health, and inexhaustible means and opportunities.
Isaiah 44:2 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
2 This is the word of the LORD your Maker who shaped you from birth; He will help you: Do not fear; Jacob is My servant; I have chosen Jeshurun.
M. B. Eddy: “The universe of Spirit reflects the creative power of the divine Principle, or Life, which reproduces the multitudinous forms of Mind and governs the multiplication of the compound idea man.”
SPIRIT is LIFE and its activity is timeless, dynamic, creative, and continual. Man and the universe are the vigorous blossoming of SPIRIT’s awesome substance. There is no death, destruction nor aging to fear or experience when we are in accord with our immortal essence.
