Mother Divine’s Sermon At The Holy Communion Table During Celebration Of The Anniversary Of The Holy Marriage Of Father Divine To His Spotless Virgin Bride at Unity Mission Church, Home And Training School, Inc., Of Penna. 907 N. 41st Street, Philadelphia, Pa. on April 29, 1976 at 5:20 p.m.
Mother Divine: Peace, Father Dear, Lamb of GOD that taketh away the sins of the world, Peace to the holy congregation! I stand before you today on the sacred grounds of Woodmont before the Holy Sanctuary of the Sacrificed Body of GOD to lift up the CHRIST Standard in the minds of, not only those of you present, but in the minds of all creation. All humanity must consider the CHRIST Standard; we must, as human beings consider our physiological and our spiritual beginnings.
Founded on Judaic-Christian Culture
As Americans we are founded on the Judaic-Christian culture and that Judaic-Christian culture lifts high the Holy Scriptures. This is the foundation upon which our society has been built; this is the culture that we have been born into, and because we are born into it, we automatically know that there is one true and living GOD. We know that GOD is the Supreme Power of the universe. HE is the Intelligence that created and formed, with His Power, all creation and this Power is moving in the earth today. As subjects of this Creator, we are bound by the Laws by which HE created us and being the highest form of His Creation, we are distinctive in that we have been given a mind to think; this is what sets us apart from all other animals. We are biologically animals, but if we claim our inheritance as Children of GOD, as human beings we are superior to any other animal. Because we have this power to think and have not chosen of our own free will to let our mind be in accord with that Supreme Mind, the Intelligence of the Universe, we have fallen from our first estate, and today we see man lower than the beasts, lower than the animals that GOD has created, and man must consider where he made his mistake and be willing to make the changes to correct that mistake. It is because man has failed to realize that it was a fall in consciousness that caused the separation from GOD. We will just consider the Holy Scripture, Genesis chapter 1, verse 27:
“So, God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; Male and female created he them.”
Chapter 2, verse 7:
“And the LORD God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

Dr. Kephart, Professor of Social Studies at the University of Pennsylvania had been using a chapter on FATHER DIVINE in his book entitled “Extraordinary Groups” for his Social Studies class and desired that MOTHER DIVINE speak to the students Herself. MOTHER acceded to his request and spoke to a group of some thirty of these students. Many of the things She said were to correct or clarify what Dr. Kephart had written. Her Address is transcribed herewith.
