  • Differentiate Jerusalem and New Jerusalem

    TEXTS:

    "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" (Matt)

    "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."(Rev)

    DISCUSSION:

    Using the Glossary definitions in S&H (among any other references), be ready to differentiate between Jerusalem and New Jerusalem. Consider their origin, etc., and how states and stages of consciousness fit in.

  • Subject: The kingdom of God is within you

    TEXT:And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20, 21)

    What could this possibly mean in practice?

    See if you can find some relevant citations to support your explanation.

  • Waymarks to the one Mind

    TEXT:  from S&H

    Every object in material thought will be destroyed, but
    the spiritual idea, whose substance is in Mind, is eternal...
    When examined in the light of divine Science, mortals
    present more than is detected upon the surface, since
    inverted thoughts and erroneous beliefs must
    be counterfeits of Truth. Thought is bor-
    rowed from a higher source than matter, and
    by reversal, errors serve as waymarks to the one Mind,
    in which all error disappears in celestial Truth. The
    robes of Spirit are "white and glistering," like the raiment
    of Christ. Even in this world, therefore, "let thy gar-
    ments be always white." "Blessed is the man that en-
    dureth [overcometh] temptation: for when he is tried,
    [proved faithful], he shall receive the crown of life,
    which the Lord hath promised to them that love him." (James i. 12.)

    DISCUSSION:

    No quotes please. Bring examples in your own experience of:

    1. objects in material thought destroyed

    2. by reversal, errors serving as waymarks
