8/10/99 Getting Friendly w/the Infinite

Notes/references from Sunday School Class of August 8, 1999

Lesson Subject: Spirit

Class topic: Are you getting friendly with the infinite?

Warren Bolon’s article in the June 7 Sentinel titled Natural Science-where to now?, asks, a series of thought provoking questions including, "So can scientific discovery ever end? Or is it that a materially confined concept of science inevitably bumps up against limits? Are conventional tools of scientific discovery----knowledge, reason, human intellect, even massive computing power----incapable of reaching beyond limits inherent in a physical existence and a material universe?

In other words, is the thumpable world of the physical senses all there is to existence? Or did God or pure chance make it that way, as life’s unsolvable mystery? Or has God in fact made a wholly spiritual universe and spiritual existence that we, as yet, only faintly perceive?

Christian Metaphysics explains what twentieth-century physics hints at----that the material world, which seems so solid beneath our feet, is insubstantial.

. . . Any time this divine influence restores a dysfunctional system---in the body, an institution, or a broken relationship---a window on the infinite is nudged further open. Truth frees its seeker.

So to ask where science is headed is, in some measure, to ask ourselves: Am I thinking beyond the familiar and tactile? Am I getting friendly with the infinite? Do I sense a universal law operating in the ordinary?

My 149:31 Remember, thou canst be brought into no condition, be it ever so severe, where Love has not been before thee and where its tender lesson is not awaiting thee. Therefore despair not nor murmur, for that which seeketh to save, to heal, and to deliver, will guide thee, if thou seekest this guidance.

S&H 14:12-18 Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,--neither in nor of matter,--and the body will then utter no complaints. If suffering from a belief in sickness, you will find yourself suddenly well. Sorrow is turned into joy when the body is controlled by spiritual Life, Truth, and Love.

Ret 22:1 The human history needs to be revised, and the material record expunged.

You need to go back in time and correct those thoughts that claimed you were limited in any direction. Jesus was crucified between two thieves. The thief of the past and the thief of the future. Don’t let past mistakes or future fears rob you of the "nowness" of the Christ.


You are the reflection of Mind right now!…and now…and now… That’s how the loaves and fishes were multiplied and the oil fill all the vessels. The same is true of your body. Consciousness is not in the body but rather your body dwells in consciousness---the consciousness of Mind thinking of you. All healing is immediate.
