And thus the body, being the source of 362 1, 19 | And thus the body, being the source of no uneasiness 363 1, 20 | chap. 20. The resurrection to damnation~ 364 1, 20 | here to be conformed to the truth, falls when the body 365 1, 20 | to the truth, falls when the body dies into a more terrible 366 1, 20 | habitation, but to endure the penalty of his sin. ~ 367 1, 21 | And so faith clings to the assurance, and we must believe 368 1, 21 | so in fact, that neither the human soul nor the human 369 1, 21 | neither the human soul nor the human body suffers complete 370 1, 21 | complete extinction, but that the wicked rise again to endure 371 1, 21 | inconceivable punishment, and the good to receive eternal 372 1, 22 | things, then, those only are the true objects of enjoyment 373 1, 22 | eternal and unchangeable. The rest are for use, that we 374 1, 22 | may be able to arrive at the full enjoyment of the former. 375 1, 22 | at the full enjoyment of the former. We, however, who 376 1, 22 | truly is man, made after the image and similitude of 377 1, 22 | of God, not as respects the mortal body in which he 378 1, 22 | clothed, but as respects the rational soul by which he 379 1, 22 | exalted in honour above the beasts. And so it becomes 380 1, 22 | for his own sake, or for the sake of something else. 381 1, 22 | enjoy him; if it is for the sake of something else, 382 1, 22 | that he is to be loved for the sake of something else. 383 1, 22 | for its own sake, then in the enjoyment of it consists 384 1, 22 | it consists a happy life, the hope of which at least, 385 1, 22 | which at least, if not yet the reality, is our comfort 386 1, 22 | reality, is our comfort in the present time. But a curse 387 1, 22 | himself, if you look at the matter clearly, because 388 1, 22 | for his own sake, but for the sake of Him who is the true 389 1, 22 | for the sake of Him who is the true object of enjoyment. 390 1, 22 | life is a journey towards the unchangeable life, and his 391 1, 22 | affections wrapped up in, the unchangeable good, than 392 1, 22 | God's sake. For this is the law of love that has been 393 1, 22 | afford room, as it were, for the wish to enjoy some other 394 1, 22 | love is to be borne into the same channel in which the 395 1, 22 | the same channel in which the whole current of our affections 396 1, 22 | as himself, a man turns the whole current of his love 397 1, 22 | himself and his neighbour into the channel of the love of God, 398 1, 22 | neighbour into the channel of the love of God, which suffers 399 1, 23 | related to us as to need the goodness of God through 400 1, 23 | instrumentality, such as the body. For assuredly the 401 1, 23 | the body. For assuredly the martyrs did not love the 402 1, 23 | the martyrs did not love the wickedness of their persecutors, 403 1, 23 | although they used it to attain the favour of God. As, then, 404 1, 23 | precepts need be given about the second and fourth of these. 405 1, 23 | a man may fall away from the truth, he still continues 406 1, 23 | and to love his own body. The soul which flies away from 407 1, 23 | soul which flies away from the unchangeable Light, the 408 1, 23 | the unchangeable Light, the Ruler of all things, does 409 1, 23 | men. For it is inherent in the sinful soul to desire above 410 1, 23 | own soul." And accordingly the soul becomes weak, and endures 411 1, 23 | endures much suffering about the mortal body. For, of course, 412 1, 23 | of course, it must love the body, and be grieved at 413 1, 23 | grieved at its corruption; and the immortality and incorruptibility 414 1, 23 | and incorruptibility of the body spring out of the health 415 1, 23 | of the body spring out of the health of the soul. Now 416 1, 23 | spring out of the health of the soul. Now the health of 417 1, 23 | health of the soul. Now the health of the soul is to 418 1, 23 | soul. Now the health of the soul is to cling steadfastly 419 1, 23 | to cling steadfastly to the better part, that is, to 420 1, 23 | better part, that is, to the unchangeable God. But when 421 1, 24 | man hate his own body. For the apostle says truly, "No 422 1, 24 | must be a spirit. And as to the fact that they seem in some 423 1, 24 | toil, those who do this in the right spirit do it not that 424 1, 24 | of toilsome exercise of the body itself to root out 425 1, 24 | lusts that are hurtful to the body, that is, those habits 426 1, 24 | habits and affections of the soul that lead to the enjoyment 427 1, 24 | of the soul that lead to the enjoyment of unworthy objects. 428 1, 24 | Those, on the other hand, who do this 429 1, 24 | interpretation of what they read: "The flesh lusteth against the 430 1, 24 | The flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against 431 1, 24 | against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh, 432 1, 24 | and the spirit against the flesh, and these are contrary 433 1, 24 | and these are contrary the one to the other." For this 434 1, 24 | are contrary the one to the other." For this is said 435 1, 24 | other." For this is said of the carnal habit yet unsubdued, 436 1, 24 | unsubdued, against which the spirit lusteth, not to destroy 437 1, 24 | lusteth, not to destroy the body, but to eradicate the 438 1, 24 | the body, but to eradicate the lust of the body i.e., its 439 1, 24 | to eradicate the lust of the body i.e., its evil habit 440 1, 24 | thus to make it subject to the spirit, which is what the 441 1, 24 | the spirit, which is what the order of nature demands. 442 1, 24 | nature demands. For as, after the resurrection, the body, 443 1, 24 | after the resurrection, the body, having become wholly 444 1, 24 | become wholly subject to the spirit, will live in perfect 445 1, 24 | make it an object to have the carnal habit changed for 446 1, 24 | carnal habit changed for the better, so that its inordinate 447 1, 24 | affections may not war against the soul. And until this shall 448 1, 24 | this shall take place, "the flesh lusteth against the 449 1, 24 | the flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against 450 1, 24 | against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh;" 451 1, 24 | and the spirit against the flesh;" the spirit struggling, 452 1, 24 | spirit against the flesh;" the spirit struggling, not in 453 1, 24 | not in hatred, but for the mastery, because it desires 454 1, 24 | loves should be subject to the higher principle; and the 455 1, 24 | the higher principle; and the fleshy struggling, not in 456 1, 24 | in hatred, but because of the bondage of habit which it 457 1, 24 | it has become inveterate. The spirit, then, in subduing 458 1, 24 | spirit, then, in subduing the flesh, is working as it 459 1, 24 | working as it were to destroy the ill founded peace of an 460 1, 24 | habit, and to bring about the real peace which springs 461 1, 24 | which would overbalance the loss. This and other indications 462 1, 24 | and other indications of the same kind are sufficient 463 1, 24 | those who candidly seek the truth how well-founded is 464 1, 24 | truth how well-founded is the statement of the apostle 465 1, 24 | well-founded is the statement of the apostle when he says, "No 466 1, 24 | and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the Church". ~ 467 1, 24 | cherisheth it, even as the Lord the Church". ~ 468 1, 25 | therefore, ought to be taught the due measure of loving, that 469 1, 25 | that he loves better than the safety and soundness of 470 1, 25 | to be told not to desire the safety and health of his 471 1, 25 | something he desires more. For the miser, though he loves money, 472 1, 25 | because he values more highly the bodily health which the 473 1, 25 | the bodily health which the bread sustains. It is superfluous 474 1, 25 | plain, but this is just what the error of wicked men often 475 1, 26 | chap. 26. The command to love God and 476 1, 26 | which is common to us with the beasts (for even the beasts 477 1, 26 | with the beasts (for even the beasts love themselves and 478 1, 26 | Thou shalt love," He says, "the Lord thy God with all thy 479 1, 26 | two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Thus 480 1, 26 | commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Thus the end 481 1, 26 | and the prophets." Thus the end of the commandment is 482 1, 26 | prophets." Thus the end of the commandment is love, and 483 1, 26 | love, and that twofold, the love of God and the love 484 1, 26 | twofold, the love of God and the love of our neighbour. Now, 485 1, 26 | you will find that none of the classes of things that are 486 1, 26 | commandments. For though, when the love of God comes first, 487 1, 26 | of God comes first, and the measure of our love for 488 1, 27 | chap. 27. The order of love~ 489 1, 27 | have fellowship with us in the enjoyment of God, whereas 490 1, 27 | whereas our body cannot; for the body only lives through 491 1, 27 | body only lives through the soul, and it is by the soul 492 1, 27 | through the soul, and it is by the soul that we enjoy God. ~ 493 1, 28 | regard to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, 494 1, 28 | greater claim upon you than the other, you could do nothing 495 1, 28 | since you cannot consult for the good of them all, you must 496 1, 28 | them all, you must take the matter as decided for you 497 1, 28 | as each man happens for the time being to be more closely 498 1, 29 | us in loving God, and all the assistance that we either 499 1, 29 | to that one end.
