Pagina 289 - And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in me ; that they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee ; that they also may be one in us ; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
Pagina 171 - Then they that gladly received his word were baptized ; and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls ; and they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Pagina 270 - He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities — all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Pagina 270 - Son of his love ; in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him; and he is before all things, and in him all things consist.

Pagina 186 - It will be part of the citizen's daily life : more social than personal, more civic than domestic, more practical than mystical. It will give ample scope to the personal, the domestic, even the mystical side of human nature, within the control of reason and the claims of active duty. Religion will thus mean the guidance of right living by the light of personal and social duty as taught by a systematic Sociology. Its creed will be a synthetic Philosophy, resting on the general body of positive science....
Pagina 300 - The common welfare urgently demands a return to Him from whom we should never have gone astray ; to Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, — and this on the part not only of individuals but of society as a whole.
Pagina 128 - Saoshyant and his helpers, when he shall restore the world, which will (thenceforth) never grow old and never die, never decaying and never rotting, ever living and ever increasing, and master of its wish, when the dead will rise, when life and immortality will come, and the world will be restored at its wish...
