327—WATCH that you maintain the right concept of the relation between the law and the prophets. The law of God acknowledges no reality in the mortal dream, and no mortal man that needs help. On the other hand prophecy is the process whereby mortal man who does need help, can establish an expectancy, so that heaven, which is what he is working to attain, may be used in the effort to attain heaven.
Scholastic theology has been of little practical help to man because it has presented heaven, as the law, or goal, without furnishing the prophets, or the way to use heaven practically in attaining heaven. It requires expectancy to bring out healing. So prophecy, which produces expectancy, must unite with law, which acknowledges no human need, since in this unity, expectancy is realized and becomes permanently established in good.
