"The kingdom of his dear Son"

IN the first chapter of his epistle to the Colossians Paul refers to God in the following very helpful words, as the Father "who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son." The words correspond to what Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 269): "Metaphysics resolves things into thoughts, and exchanges the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul."

As one understands the unreality, the utter nothingness, of material things, or of the so-called material creation, one is delivered "from the power of darkness." He has begun to resolve "things into thoughts;" or, in other words, to perceive or grasp the spiritual or real creation of perfect ideas. Thus he is translated "into the kingdom of his dear Son;" and this means health, harmony, joy, and peace. In this manner he exchanges "the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul."
