CHAPTER OF THE MONTH
Our Study Series includes an ambitious and important twelve-month study of The Government of Eden, a most timely book focusing on spiritual government and how to live “in the world but not of it.”  On the first day of each month we will post a new chapter available to read online. Included with each chapter is Supplemental Reading, available as a downloadable PDF, featuring related readings and audio-listening suggestions. This chapter will be available until the last day of the month. Supplemental Reading for this chapter, and previous chapters, can be accessed by clicking on the tabs below.

Chapter of the Month
The Government of Eden
Chapter Four, "When We Are Tempted by Good and Evil"
"Aha! I am not to be fooled by appearances. There is no power given to man. All power is in God. All power is in Spirit. All power is in the Invisible..."
Joel Goldsmith
The Government of Eden, Chapter 4
 

Chapter Four in The Government of Eden, is powerful and direct—a mirror to our turbulent times. Because this important—and perhaps difficult— chapter is the longest in the book, we will work with it both in February and March. The central question throughout these pages asks, are there human solutions to the problems facing the world? If not, what can we do? Joel brilliantly dissects the human condition—the universal Prodigal Son experience—and  lays out a path back to“the kingdom” which has ever been within.
"The message of The Infinite Way revealed to me at the beginning that God does not set us free. It is the consciousness of God in us that makes us free. Where the consciousness of the presence of God is not, there is bondage; there is sin, false appetite, disease, lack, limitation, and man’s inhumanity to man. But where the consciousness of God is present—not where God is present—God is omnipresence. Where the consciousness of God is present, there is liberty, freedom, wholeness, completeness."
