(3.18) Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen.
Faith is resolute confidence in the principle of cause & effect.
(3.17) Faith is scientifically intact because it is a natural law.
We can be confident that cause & effect will always operate because it is a law of nature.
(3.16) We are thinking on the plane of the absolute where–having planted a seed–if left undisturbed, will germinate into fruition.
The plane of the absolute is the realm of nature/natural law/which never deviates from operation.
(3.15) Jesus, Plato, and Swedenborg all advocated this teaching.
…the teaching of natural law/natures operating system.
(3.14) The formula for the unerring solution to every problem is to believe our desires have already been fulfilled. Their accomplishment will soon follow.
Because we are confident in the unfailing operation of nature, we can be assured that all effects (conditions) have a certain definite cause. Thus, if we instigate a cause, we can be equally as confident that an effect will be produced. It is important to remember that the effect will be determined by more factors than we can fathom, thus, the more we can align our desired outcome with the benefit of others, the greater the chance that our desired outcome will manifest.
(3.13) Need, want, and desire–in the largest sense–induce, guide, and determine action.
Action is determined by what we think about.
