1      ALL that is God created. If sin has any pretense of

         existence, God is responsible therefor; but there is

3      no reality in sin, for God can no more behold it, or acknowl-

         edge it, than the sun can coexist with darkness.

         To build the individual spiritual sense, conscious of

6      only health, holiness, and heaven, on the foundations of

         an eternal Mind which is conscious of sickness, sin, and

         death, is a moral impossibility; for "other foundation

9      can no man lay than that is laid. " ( 1 Corinthians iii. 11.)

         The nearer we approximate to such a Mind, even if it were

         (or could be) God, the more real those mind-pictures would

12    become to us; until the hope of ever eluding their dread

         presence must yield to despair, and the haunting sense

         of evil forever accompany our being.

15    Mortals may climb the smooth glaciers, leap the dark

         fissures, scale the treacherous ice, and stand on the sum-

         mit of Mont Blanc; but they can never turn back what

18    Deity knoweth, nor escape from identification with what

         dwelleth in the eternal Mind.
