Lesson 5 - All Things Become New
"Be ye therefore perfect as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."
Every child of God shows forth three phases of enlightenment to the conscious mind; the religious, the philosophical, the scientific.
The religious is the ultimate, the highest, because it is that which binds us to the great First Cause, the Father, God.
It is an interior perception of truth, or knowledge of true principles, and a willing obedience to their promptings.
The phase of the mind we call philosophical is simply the point where the conscious mind reasons from an intellectual standpoint only, and before it reaches the interior perception or spiritual illumination, and yet has a clear intellectual perception as to how principles work; and by a close adherence to the philosophical reasoning we find we can prove things in such a manner as to call it as science.
