Activity of Right Ideas

This chapter should be called how to create a new idea and live through it.  Remember we are working with the hows of this philosophy.  How do we create a life that gives us all we desire?  Life is never limited and if we are the result of life, then we are never limited.  Thank Goodness.  Join Rev. Martha and the whole Rio Grande community as we step into the flow!

The Law Is No Respecter of Persons (James 2:1-11)

Ernest Holmes, Our Founder

Ernest Holmes

James speaks of being convinced of the law as transgressors. He does not say that god is convinced we are transgressors, but that’s the law is convinced. This passage is filled with meaning. God is natural Goodness, Eternal Freedom, and pure Loving – kindness. But the Law is a cold, hard fact, returning to each the result of his own acts, be they false or true. The Law is a neutral, but an intelligent, force — a doer and not a knower. All of law is all of the same nature.

When we do wrong, the law punishes. When we do right, it rewards. Everything is according to law and order; this is the only way the universe could function. If our thought is all of God, or Good, we shall be using the law in the right way. When our thoughts and acts are opposed to God, or Good, we transgress and are punished. “There is no sin but a mistake and no punishment but a consequence.” In like manner, Emerson tells us “there is no sin but ignorance,” and this is true, for if we knew the truth, we should not misuse the law.

The law is no respecter are of persons and will bring good or evil to any, according to his use or misuse of it. It will be a law of freedom to the righteous and one of bondage to those who misuse it. We cannot escape from the creative power of our thought and there is no use in trying to do so. All we need to do is to use the law from the right motive, then we shall be made free.

What We Believe

What We Teach

We teach the Science of Mind, which is the study of Life and the nature of the laws of thought; the idea that we live in a Spiritual Universe; that God or Spirit is in, through, around us; and that this Presence is a loving source of all Good.

Connecting Community Through Spirit!

We recognize that an inherent desire in every individual is to realize the person God intended us to be. As we realize our true God selves, the greatest gift we can give another is to support him or her in becoming that God person too.

Most important, every man, woman and child who lives in the Universe is significant to the Creator. Our doors will forever be open to all…
