TEXTS from S&H:
"From beginning to end, the Scriptures are full of
accounts of the triumph of Spirit, Mind, over matter."
"The central fact of the Bible is the superiority of spiritual over physical power."
"It is only by acknowledging the supremacy of Spirit, which annuls
the claims of matter, that mortals can lay off mortality and
find the indissoluble spiritual link which establishes man forever in the divine likeness, inseparable from his creator."
"There will be greater mental opposition to the spiritual, scientific meaning of the Scriptures than there has
ever been since the Christian era began."
1. Bring an example from the Bible of "the triumph of Spirit, Mind, over matter." Identify any sacrifice of material things behind the example.
2. Bring an example from your own experience.
3. Bring an example of where you failed to acknowledge the supremacy of Spirit in your own experience.
4. Why might there be such "mental opposition to the spiritual, scientific meaning of the Scriptures"?
