Dominion and Power of Spirit

When in the history of a country an epoch is marked by the coming to the throne of a new dynasty, time is frequently dated from the accession of this ruling house. Likewise in the human life a new era begins, in effect like a new creation, when there is accession of spirituality. Of this Mrs. Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 204), "Through the accession of spirituality, God, the divine Principle of Christian Science, literally governs the aims, ambition, and acts of the Scientist."

The enthronement of divine Principle, which is Love, means the dethronement forever of the carnal mind, whose characteristic is the reverse of love, or hostility to love, described by Paul as "enmity against God." Fleshly beliefs are of course hostile to all that is spiritual, and so they are insubordinate to divine law; they are "not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." Consequently when one becomes obedient to the law of Spirit his former manner of life ends and a new kind of life is known, even that life manifested in Christ Jesus; "for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
