  3. Hermes:

    From one Soul of the Universe are all Souls derived. . .Of these Souls there are many changes, some into a more fortunate estate, and some quite contrary. . .Not all human souls but only the pious ones are divine. Once separated from the body, and after the struggle to acquire piety, which consists in knowing God and injuring none, such a soul becomes all intelligence. The impious soul, however, punishes itself by seeking a human body to enter into, for no other body can receive a human soul it cannot enter the body of an animal devoid of reason. Divine law preserves the human soul from such infamy. . .The soul passeth from form to form and the mansions of her pilgrimage are manifold. Thou puttest off thy bodies as raiment and as vesture dost thou fold them up. Thou art from old, O Soul of Man yea, thou art from everlasting.

  4. PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN:

    A House Divided Understand what is at stake in the decision we make for or against Jesus Christ. To serve God’s true and eternal King is to enter the way to everlasting life. Through faith in Christ, we will enter paradise. But to reject the kingship of Christ is to fall under the judgment of God. If we go our own way in life—if we insist on having the upper hand over other people, refusing to give up our foolish and selfish pleasures, always breaking God’s commandments and never submitting to his will for our lives—then we will never enter the kingdom of God. Unless we repent, we will be lost forever.

  5. Tim Murtaugh:
