There is No Good in Dying
Our Next World is Here
I use words merely for convenience which I say are wrong, for example: "death." The time will come when such words will be obsolete. they will not be used when there is knowledge.
Every person who was, or ever will be, existed as much before he ever came to our senses as afterwards, the same as any mathematical truth.
When the senses shall be attached to this Wisdom, then shall be brought to pass that saying:
"Oh! death! where is thy sting! Oh, grave! where is thy victory!" Death is robbed of its victim. The grave gives up its idea of death.
It is a common remark that after we shake off this mortal coil the spirit will be set free. this is to acknowl- edge that the body is larger than the spirit or wisdom. No wonder with such a belief men pray to be delivered from the body of sin and death.
The fact is that the theory of the body and soul is not in keeping with the progress of truth or science. It leaves everything in the dark. It gives no proof of any phenomenon.
You see how all those persons that can work themselves up to believe that the time is coming when our bodies will rise again are about as far behind the times as those old persons who believe the time will come when the factories will be abolished and the girls will return to the spinning wheel and loom, when steam will be abolished. It they can get any comfort out of that kind of food, I for one will not disturb their repose.
Man has to get up a belief in opposition to the Bible's belief. He must believe Jesus went to heaven with a body of flesh and blood. this upset what Jesus intended to prove, that is, that although they should destroy this flesh and blood, Christ would show Himself to prove that man can live and have all his faculties and knowledge after the world calls him dead.
Man is always dying and living in progression, For error or opinion must always be in the mind And mind must always exist till time is no more.
There is no good in dying. For that does not change us at all.
If you want the satisfaction of having friends with you, never hint that they are going away for you will drive them from you, but sit by them just as though you were all together and you will see a scene that you will always greatly remember, for you will always feel this life of your friend or child mingling with yours, not to be separated by a belief.
The religious people of Jesus' day, like the Christians of this day, made heaven and hell places independent of man The priests tell their hearers there is another world sepa- rate from this. They give such a glowing account of it that their opinions, like fuel, set fire to the audience and a chemical change takes place; their minds are disturbed and their senses are affected by the opinions of the priests.
An expedition is fitted out to go to this world, which is actually created by the priests' opinions. The locality of this world is a mystery, so all varieties of speculation are got up about it.
The natural man, being superstitious and ignorant, is easily led by the cunning errors of the world. The leaders, being crafty and superstitious, believe in every phenome- non which is produced, and they attribute it to a power from the invisible world.
Our next world is here where we are and always must be. This teaches us to do to others as we would have others do to us, because we are all a part of each other.
When we injure one part, the whole feels it.
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
