"The Bible by His revelation is most absorbing

From the June 1890 issue of The Christian Science Journal

From "Letters of General Gordon"

"The Bible by His revelation is most absorbing. It seems so clear when He teaches! The flesh cannot receive the things of the Spirit. The Spiritual soul never argues; it is only the carnal mind that does so.... God speaks in us. If we live much in the flesh we shall not hear His voice, unless by trials and afflictions; but if we live in the Spirit, we shall, according to the degree we do so, hear His voice minutely and always.... Peace is a fruit of the Spirit, and obtained only by the indwelling of the Spirit ... Meditate much in the fruit of the Spirit, and with God's blessing, you will have done with dark times."—From "Letters of General Gordon"
