In Christian Service

 

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what

is due to him for the things done while in the body, wether good or bad.”Paul ( II Corinthians 5:10)

            There are some who undoubtedly perceive Spiritism as a simple experimental phenomenon of little moral significance to mankind.

             Thus, many students of this Consoling Doctrine limit themselves to laboratoty investigations or physical discussions.

            Notwithstanding, it is imperative that we recognize there are as many category of discarnates as there are of incarnates.

            Spiritis that are argumentative, frivolous, rebellious and unstable are everywhere. Beyond these, other enigmas and problems appear to the inhabitants of both planes.

            For similar reasons, the supporters of effective progress of the world, far from physical life, advocate Spiritism with Jesus converting the interchange in a factor of spiritual purification.

            We feel that we should not criticize other circles of life, if we are not interested in improving our [personality in the one which we live.

            It is of little value to search for resources that do not dignify us.

            So for us, who supposedly have our hearts open to responsibilities of living, Spiritism does not express justa  asimple conviction f immortality: it is a climate of service and education.

            It is of no use simply to have the conviction of the survival of the soul after death, without prior preparation for spiritual life while on Earth. In that effort toward rehabilitation there is no wiser and more loving guide that Christ.

            Only in the elight of His sublime lessons it is possible to readjust our path, renovate our mind and purify our heart.

            Not everything that is admirable is divine.

            Not all that is grand is respectable.

            Not all that is beautiful is saintly.

            Not all that is agreeable is useful.

            The problem is not only to have knowledge, but it is fir each to reform oneself toward righteousness.

            So let us adapt ourselves to the Gospel in the feeling and in life, being mindful of our indispensable inner illumination

 

because according to the opportune and wise words of the Apostle. “For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due to him for the things done while in the body, wether good or bad.”
