Watching

  • 12/24/15 - Christmas Eve Watch Session

     

    Each participant is invited to bring a favorite Bible selection suitable for the occasion. (too long, and the message is lost - consider the listener!)

    WATCH Outline - starting at home and working out

    Man is, I am, the expression of Soul.
    Any sentiment of personal sense, any guilt, yearning for past times, etc. is error - holiday mesmerism is not of God, therefore groundless, without purpose, non-sense.
    We celebrate the feast of Soul, which carries with it clarity, strength and wisdom to do His will.

  • A prayer for the social/economic upheaval of the world

    "It is 'a consummation devoutly to be wished' that all nations shall speedily learn and practise the intermediate line of justice between the classes and masses of mankind, and thus exemplify in all things the universal equity of Christianity.” (Miscellany)

    "In all things the universal equity of Christianity" is the will of divine Love.

  • Evolution of man a dangerous myth

    Based upon the earliest Bible records, the heart of man has not evolved one iota over thousands of years. Job’s pride, shame, fear, self-righteousness, as well as his capacity for redemption, the materialism and sensualism of Sodom and Gomorrah - are these not characteristic of the modern man’s heart? Take any ancient Bible character, and you will find the same human heart that we are quite familiar with.

  • How to discern cheap metaphysics

    How do we discern cheap metaphysics which has become the hallmark of so many systems in this day and age, including Christian Science post Mary Baker Eddy? If the spirit of our blessed Master is not there, you can bet it is cheap!!

  • Living it instead of believing in it

    This morning I opened to Paul's letter to the Colossians chapter 2. If this is not a warning of church organization, I don't know what is! This is what I get:

    "As you have received the Christ, Truth, use it.

  • Prayer vs Watching

    What might be the distinction between prayer and watching?

    To me, Psalm 91 is an ideal prayer because it leads us into a place of refuge, where we can feel the safety, feel the presence of something very good, where we can trust God with our desires.

    Watching, on the other hand, is more assertive, acknowledging a mental warfare going on "under the radar."  This kind of assertive mental work is treacherous unless there is a moral foundation outside of the individual, in other words, unless the Divine Will is the goal.

  • Watch in making a decision

    "Every step towards goodness is a departure from materiality, and is a tendency towards God, Spirit. Material theories partially paralyze this attraction towards infinite and eternal good by an opposite attraction towards the finite, temporary, and discordant." (S&H)

  • What to do with a premonition

    When a premonition comes to us, we ought to pay attention - but we need Truth to guide us how to deal with it.

     

    What is that Truth? That there is a loving God that never condemns us.

  • Who is born of God and cannot sin?

    We have heard so much about being "born again." What's up with that? It is thought that once you profess that Jesus is Lord, or something like that, you are in! Then this morning (from audio selection below) I read that those born of God cannot sin. I'd like to meet that person. (btw - Elsewhere in the same book it says anyone who claims he is without sin is a liar!)
