Charity

By: Swedenborg, Emanuel

Description: THE FIRST OF CHARITY IS TO LOOK TO THE LORD AND SHUN EVILS BECAUSE THEY ARE SINS; THIS IS DONE BY REPENTANCE. To be expounded in this order: In so far as anyone does not shun evils because they are sins, he remains in them. In so far as anyone does not recognize and know what are sins, he does not see otherwise than that he is without sin.

Doctrine of Faith

By: Swedenborg, Emanuel

Description: FAITH IS AN INTERNAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF TRUTH. At the present day the term Faith is taken to mean the mere thought that the thing is so because the church so teaches, and because it is not evident to the understanding. For we are told to believe and not to doubt, and if we say that we do not comprehend, we are told that this is just the reason for believing. So that the faith of the present day is a faith in the unknown, and may be called blind faith, and as ...

White Horse

Canons

By: Swedenborg, Emanuel

Description: At this day nothing else than the self-evidencing reason of love will reestablish the church, because they have fallen. The church of this day errs concerning God; it errs concerning faith; it errs concerning charity; and it knows nothing of eternal life; thus it is in thick darkness. The whole of religion is founded upon the idea of God; and that the former follows according to the latter. This church is that to which all churches, from the first in order, ...

Invitation to the New Church

By: Swedenborg, Emanuel

Description: During man’s regeneration, the light of heaven is instilled into natural light, and at the same time the heat of heaven; these two constitute, as it were, the new soul, through which man is formed by the Lord.

Last Judgment Continued, 1758

By: Swedenborg, Emanuel

Description: Heaven and hell are from the human race. All who have ever been born men from the beginning of creation, and are deceased, are either in heaven or in hell. The Last Judgment must be where all are together; therefore in the spiritual world, and not on the earth. The Last Judgment exists when the end of the church is; and the end of the church is when there is no faith, because there is no charity. All the things which are predicted in the Apocalypse are at th...

God the Savior

By: Swedenborg, Emanuel
