Spiritual Interpretation of the Ten Commandments
From Divinity Course and General Collectanea, the “blue book,” by Mary Baker Eddy, pages 232-233
1. True creation. One God, one Mind, one cause, one creator.
2. False creation. Mortal mind forms its own concepts and fears or loves them.
3. Creation. Scholastic theology takes God’s name in vain by believing His creation is both material and spiritual. As there is but one creator, there is but one creation.
4. Reign of harmony.
6. Christ. By reflecting our Father-Mother God, thereby uniting in one consciousness the male and female, the Christ is born, which reveals man as eternal.
7. Unity. Knowing that we reflect the male and female, we must not adulterate this idea by supposing that each of God’s children is not complete, infinite. Seeing this purity, we are partakers of the marriage supper of the Lamb, the unity of man with the spiritual idea.
8. Individuality. Mortal mind cannot steal from our individuality by making us suppose personality, or any phase of matter, has power to give to, or take away from God’s idea, anything.
9. Love. ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself.’ See the spiritual idea.
10. Fulfillment. Love gives us all things.
