Padgett's Messages

Duplicates of The Messages

There are a surprising number of duplicates in the four volumes of “True Gospel Revealed Anew by Jesus” - in fact over 100 instances. In the construction of the four volumes, which started sometime after James Padgett’s death in 1923, and culminated in Volume I being published in 1941 and Volume IV in 1972, numerous duplicates and even triplicates ensued as Volumes II through IV were produced. A very small number of these are obviously deliberate, as the messages were deemed worthy of repeat, and others may have been reselected to correct earlier transcription errors, but it is likely that the vast majority are simply errors of publishing. It would appear no specific record was kept of which originals had already been used, as all messages show evidence of being re-transcribed from the original hand-written automatic writing. Volumes III and IV are the worst in this respect, with numerous instances of duplications within the same volume - something that can hardly be viewed as intentional. For example Volume III has seven messages that are repeated in that volume, and Volume IV has eleven.

In comparing these duplicates, one has an opportunity to compare the accuracy of the transcription from the automatic writing of James Padgett. It would be fair to say, that in general, the duplicates offer a convincing evidence that the original transcription was accurate. The only way that this opinion can be bettered, is to obtain the originals and recompare. A project was begun in 2012 to scan all these, and share them, and it is now complete. And some further time before there will be agreement on the “new” transcriptions. Please note that the messages linked here have been altered from that which was initially published, in an attempt to contain the most likely and accurate transcription.

No. Vol Message Vol Message
1 I/40 The Only Prayer That Man Need Offer to the Father. Uses the word “to”, where all other versions use “into.” Excludes the word “sincere”, which all other versions have. The scanned image shows that “to” is correct and “sincere” is not present. II/390 The Prayer from Jesus. Presumed deliberate duplication, excludes introductory words but includes these in the closing words, which are somewhat edited.
2 I/40 The Only Prayer That Man Need Offer to the Father III/404 The Prayer from Jesus. Presumed deliberate reprint as this version shows an alteration requested in September 1965. Excludes introductory words and closing words.
3 I/40 The Only Prayer That Man Need Offer to the Father IV/208 The Prayer from Jesus. Presumed deliberate reprint as this version shows an alteration requested in September 1965. It also has somewhat edited introductory words, which include most of the closing words, but at the beginning, and no closing words. The prayer has one typographical error.
4 I/69 John H Padgett:Affirmation that Mr. Padgett’s grandmother wrote the message on “Who and What is God?” III/115 Mr. Padgett’s father writes about the infidels first realisation when they come into the spirit world that there must be a God. Minor typographical differences only.
5 I/154 John:Celestials must work until the Celestial Kingdom will be closed II/184 St John - The Kingdom will be completed and the door of the Heavenly Kingdom closed. Some words altered, difference minimal.
6 I/154 John:Celestials must work until the Celestial Kingdom will be closed IV/13 John, as Mr Padgett’s guardian angel will go wherever Mr. Padgett will go to enable him to perform his work in protecting and enlightening Mr. Padgett, and James will do the same for Dr. Stone as his special guardian. This is rather longer, and in fact looks like it may contain part of an unrelated message, but in fact, when compared against the Tablett description, this appears to be the complete message.
7 I/208 What Jesus meant when he said - He that liveth and believeth on me shall never die Has a different final paragraph. III/104 Jesus explains the phrase. He that liveth and believeth on me shall never die. A rather significant number of minor word alterations. A different final paragraph.
8 I/237 Elias (Elijah) comments on Jesus’ message on the cause of the war. III/287 Elias talks about the Law of Compensation and that God will not alter same. Some words altered, difference minimal.
9 I/241 Happiness and peace that passeth all understanding comes to the possessor of the Divine Love. II/389 Happiness and peace that passeth all understanding comes to the possessor of the Divine Love. Some words altered, difference very minimal.
10 I/275 Cornelius the Centurion: Much interested in the work and the importance of mankind knowing the Truth. II/388 A short message from Cornelius. Some words altered, difference minimal.
11 I/293 John: What does the spirit of man do when it leaves the physical body for enernity? III/194 John explains on what takes place on death of the body and what does the spirit of man do when it leaves the body. Some words altered, difference minimal.
12 I/306 John:Refers to the nominal Christian and the need of the Divine Love in the soul so as to become a true Christian. III/328 John writes that there is no one in all the world at this time who is fitted to do the work which you are now doing and which you must continue to do while on earth. This has one additional paragraph.
13 I/317 Jesus is not God or to be worshiped as God. Explains his mission. These messages that Mr. Padgett is receiving is his “New Gospel to all men, to both mortals and spirits.” III/69 When Mr. Padgett’s soul condition was sufficient to permit Jesus to write, the following informative message we received. Some words altered, difference minimal. But some of the message is out of logical order, as if the pages were mixed up.
14 I/343 Jesus recognizes Mr. Padgett’s grandmother’s capability in writing the Truths of the Father. II/80 Jesus says Ann Rollins is a very capable spirit in discussing those things which reveal the Truths of the Father. Some words altered, difference minimal.
15 I/343 The importance of knowing the Way to the Celestial Kingdom. Divine Love comes only in response to the Soul’s Longings for it’s Possession - From Mr Padgett’s grandmother, Ann Rollins.. III/113 Mr. Padgett’s grandmother writes on the importance of knowing the Way to the Celestial Heavens. Some words altered, difference minimal.
16 I/345 John Bunyan:The Law of Compensation. III/363 John Bunyan heard the message of Ann Rollins that was filled with deep Truth and Love of the Father, if I had this love, I would have saved many hours of worriment. There would appear to be some errors in this copy.
17 I/361 Elohiam: A member of the Sanhedrin and judge at the trial of Jesus states the reasons for condemning the Master at the time and now urges all members of his race to accept Jesus as the long sough Messiah and seek the Father’s Love in earnest prayer. III/224 Euliam says that Jesus was crucified because the Jews failed to recognise Jesus as the looked for Messiah. This copy has a large number of typographic errors but is otherwise identical.
18 I/366 Here the Master, in one of his early writings, tells who he really was and tries to correct some of the misconceptions that exist about him in the New Testament. The tone between this and the great formal messages by the Master is quite striking. This is the first formal message received by James E Padgett. III/45 Jesus In His First Formal Message Informs Mr. Padgett To Go To The Father For His Help. This would appear to be a very poor transcript, as it has numerous errors. There is a significant difference in paragraph three with a “not” missing.
19 I/368 The Master is anxious that mankind should stop worshipping him as God. This copy has additional paragraphs at the end of this message. II/16 Jesus giving Mr. Padgett advice as to prayer and worship. Says he has selected Mr. Padgett to do this work. There are many small differences, other than the missing paragraphs.
20 I/373 Mary Kennedy: This message informs the publisher through Mr. Padgett that she is now in a higher plane of the Celestial Heavens, with increased soul understanding of what the Father’s Love means. IV/111 Helen and Mary write of their love for their soulmates on earth. The portion of this message that is from Mary Kennedy is the duplicate. Some small differences, but it also appears Dr Stone removed the comment (as published in Vol I in 1941) that his life expectancy was short! But curiously John Paul Gibson left it in Vol IV, even though Dr Stone had clearly reached an advanced age by 1972.
21 I/378 William Stone: The publisher’s father states he is making earnest efforts to reach his wife’s home and be with her through prayer to the Father for His Love. IV/41 Second message from William Stone, father of Leslie R. Stone. A very surprising number of differences, given such a short message. Generally Vol 1 is more accurately transcribed, but in this case it would appear that cumbersome English has been cleaned up in that copy, and Vol 4 may be more accurate. The meaning is not altered by these changes.
22 I/381 Thomas Payne: The skeptical writer of colonial days, called by contemporaries an infidel, admits he was mistaken in some of his beliefs. (His name was misspelled in this copy) III/358 Thomas Paine while on earth did not believe in Jesus as the son of God. Some words altered, difference minimal. Name spelt correctly here.
23 II/10 Spirit’s experience after writing through Mr. Padgett. Obtained the Divine Love and made his progress into the Third Sphere. This message has two additional final paragraphs. Differences are all minor. In this earlier copy, Riddle’s name was concealed. IV/306 Riddle writes that he considered Jesus to be a mere man when on earth, who had received a large conception of the Truth, and attempted to teach it. But now he writes that Jesus is the most wonderful of all spirits.
24 II/18 G. R. continues describing his progress. Riddle’s name is concealed on this message. IV/309 Riddle has progressed to a new sphere and is now seeking more help to further his spiritual progress. And has received it with the help of Jesus. A very considerable number of differences, some very minor, but many more significant. One “with”+“can” for “without”+“cannot,” and numerous additional paragraphs in this copy. Evidence of editing where Riddle gets tricky over Jesus’ uniqueness. Would benefit from rescanning. However there are no cases where the meaning is unclear.
25 II/21 Jesus - On the love of man. III/74 Jesus’ explanation on the love of man. This message has a significant number of minor differences, and two differences that are important. It would be wise to review the original, although I am inclined to believe this copy is in error.
26 II/28 Helen writes on the Law of Compensation. Is this two combined messages? III/106 Helen writes that she has progressed into the Celestial Heavens within one year after leaving the material plane. This copy is less than half the length of the other, with minor word differences as well.
27 II/43 Jesus assures that he himself is writing and refers to a spirit who claims he has lost his soul. III/24 Jesus writes that he is truly the man who was crucified on calvary, that comes to him and writes. And that Mr. Padgett is doing the greatest work that God has given to any of his creatures to do Some words altered, difference minimal. One word probably in error - confining vs confirming.
28 II/44 Helen comments on the preceding message and confirms Jesus’ identity. III/25 Helen is happy that the Master explained the lost soul meaning to Mr. Padgett and that he should be happy to have Jesus as a friend. Some words altered or missing, difference minimal. ****
29 II/45 Affirming that Jesus writes through Mr. Padgett, and no imposters. III/267 Ann Rollins reassures Mr. Padgett to have faith in the Master, the true Jesus of the Bible, and others truly are who they represented themselves to be. Almost identical.
30 II/46 Jesus - The result of Mr. Padgett’s declaration. III/78 Jesus is pleased with Mr. Padgett’s declaration, and will help him to become at-one with the Father. Some words altered, and one additional small paragraph in this copy.
31 II/47 Help given to a cleryman of the orthodox church. This copy has an introductory sentence mssing from the other copy. IV/262 W____: All of the dogmas, creeds and apostolic succession in the world cannot bestow upon the souls of men the love or mercy of the Father. A small number of differences caused by editing. In particular the spirit’s personal details are more complete in this copy. One sentence is also simplified in Vol II.
32 II/49 Personal message. Holy Ghost not God. Jesus still doing the Father’s work. III/76 Jesus explains that coming to Mr. Padgett as he does is not contrary to any law of the spirit world. Other than the insertion of one phrase, is identical.
33 II/60 Mr. Padgett’s grandmother describes her home in the Second Celestial Sphere. III/107 Ann Rollins tells of her spiritual progression from the First Celestial Sphere to the Second Celestial Sphere. All but identical.
34 II/108 Solomon’s position in the Celestial Spheres. III/219 Solomon of Old also became a follower of Jesus and knows that Jesus is the only Way to the Father. Quite a number of textual differences, although not material. Final sentence missing.
35 II/114 John - Importance of prayer so that the soul can be developed and works will follow. IV/344 John discloses the fact that Jesus’ disciples were men without experience until the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost. All but identical.
36 II/115 The blood of Jesus does not save from sin. II/167 The result of erroneous beliefs- the importance of men knowing the truth. Jesus’ blood does not wash away sin. Very minor differences.
37 II/128 John - What should a man do who is not satisfied with any of the churches. III/277 John writes that the Truths that are now being received by Padgett will fill the void in man’s search for the Truth that is not being taught by the Churches. Very minor differences until the final sentence, which is missing in this copy.
38 II/132 Saint Peter gives advice to pray. IV/136 Saint Peter wants Mr. Padgett to obtain more faith and Love of the Father and that he is with him quite often trying to help him. Two words different.
39 II/134 Jesus - What it is that makes a man Divine? III/102 Man was given the possibility of becoming in his nature Divine like the Father. But this gift was never possessed by him, until my coming to earth, and making known such a possibility. Quite a number of minor differences.
40 II/149 Jesus states that his disciples never wrote many false doctrines in the Bible attributed to him. IV/379 Jesus, like all other spiritual writers, tells Mr Padgett that he wishes to write on an important subject, because he feels that Mr. Padgett is in the proper condition to receive it, and explains St John’s Revelations. This copy is longer, as it has an introductory paragraph, and a closing paragraph that is not in Vol II. There is also a rather important passage in the middle, regarding Paul and the teaching of the blood atonement, which is not in Vol II. This is rather important because elsewhere Paul denies he taught the blood atonement.
41 II/161 John the Baptist affirms that Jesus wrote. III/333 John the Baptist also speaks encouraging words to Mr. Padgett to help to increase his faith. Some missing words and a missing phrase in this copy.
42 II/162 Mr. Padgett is in special care of the Master. III/332 John informs Mr. Padgett that he is surrounded by a band of Celestial spirits sending their love and best wishes for his spiritual progression. Identical.
43 II/162 Mr. Padgett is in special care of the Master. About half the length, but would appear to be more accurately transcribed. III/333 John tells Mr. Padgett of the great love of the Master for him and urges him to pray more to the Father. This copy is about twice the length the other, but still has a number of word differences that seem less likely to be correct.
44 II/162 St. James says that Mr. Padgett will soon get relief from worry. III/334 James the Apostle also encourages Mr. Padgett to have faith in what Jesus has said today. Almost identical.
45 II/162 St. Luke gives assurance that relief will soon come to Mr. Padgett. III/334 Luke assures Mr. Padgett of the great love and power of the Master. Very minor differences.
46 II/163 John Wesley’s affirmation. III/390 John Wesley also encourages Mr. Padgett. Minor word differences, and a missing sentence.
47 II/163 Barnabas says Mr. Padgett is the favorite of the Master on earth. III/390 Barnabas says that he goes to the Father in time of trouble. Minor differences.
48 II/166 Luke asserts that the Gospel in the Bible is not the one as he wrote it. IV/326 Martin Luther writes about the many errors in the Bible. This message contains some two paragraphs from the Luke message, and is also a duplicate of a Luther message in Vol II pg 169 (Item 47 below). There is one extra phrase in the two paragraphs.
49 II/169 Luther denies the vicarious atonement, etc. Bible full of contradictions and errors. IV/326 Martin Luther writes about the many errors in the Bible. This message also has two paragraphs from Luke Vol II pg 166 (Item 46 above). In comparing the Luther content, there are a number of differences, and some of these are not insignificant. Eg “scant” for “correct”, “man” and “many”. There is also one final sentence missing.
50 II/171 Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy’s testimony. IV/201 Mrs Eddy’s first message thru Mr Padgett. Although short has three differences, one where “non” in volume II is recorded as “now”
51 II/186 Jesus says those who worship him as they do in the churches commit blasphemy. III/201 Jesus attended a church service with Mr. Padgett and tells of what the preacher should have said regarding the blood sacrifice. The first four paragraphs in this copy are not in Vol II. While in total there are only three differences, in one sentence, the meaning is somewhat altered, with “receive my thoughts by inspiration as well as by writing” as opposed to “receive my thoughts and inspiration as well as my writings” in Vol II.
52 II/187 Jesus says his blood does not save men. Only the Divine Love or New Birth that he taught saves and redeems. III/187 Jesus listened to a conversation that Mr. Padgett had regarding my blood saving from sin, which was based on ignorance. In the second paragraph, two sentences are merged, and 23 words left out of the copy in Vol II. The last three paragraphs are also missing from Vol III.
53 II/187 Jesus says his blood does not save men. Only the Divine Love or New Birth that he taught saves and redeems. III/272 Jesus attended a church service with Mr. Padgett and advised against trying to change their mind on blood saving from sin and error. Interestingly this copy does not have the 23 additional words mentioned above, but it has another new paragraph, as well as additional sentences in the middle of the additional paragraphs found in the copy on Vol III page 187.
54 II/199 What men must do to see God and realize that He is a Personal God, with all the attributes that belong only to a Supreme, Infinite Being. IV/231 The best thing for men to do who desire to see God with all the Attributes that belong only to a Supreme Infinite Being. Some words added, difference minimal.
55 II/200 Jesus approving and emphasizing what Judas has written. IV/232 Confirms and approves of what Judas has written. Identical, but very short.
56 II/202 Jesus showed his great glory and gave his love to Mr. Padgett III/105 Jesus urges Mr. Padgett to believe in him and trust the Father that he will not be forsaken or left alone. Identical.
57 II/204 Confirmation by St. Mark that the Master is doing the great work through Mr. Padgett. III/221 St. Mark assures Mr. Padgett that the Master is now doing the great work for the redemption of mankind. Minor differences.
58 II/206 The belief in the unpardonable sin is slanderous and blasphemous against the Loving Father. III/110 Ann Rollins writes about the unpardonable sin that is of the greatest importance. A very poor transcription with numerous minor errors, including “non-existence” for “real existence”
59 II/229 The Divine Truth must be declared to all mankind. IV/160 The Master stresses the importance of the work yet to be done and assures Mr. Padgett of his help in all times of need. Almost identical except for two phrases.
60 II/231 Helen affirms that Jesus wrote. IV/162 Helen urges Mr. Padgett to remain in a condition of Love for the sake of the work to be done. Identical except for a closing sentence.
61 II/261 Helen’s experience of joy and grandeur in the Third Celestial Sphere. III/120 Helen has progressed into the Third Celestial Sphere and says that there are no words to describe its beauty. Virtually identical.
62 II/296 Lazarus affirms that Mr. Padgett is selected by Jesus to do the work. III/320 Lazarus confirms the writers as being who they represented themselves to be and that both Mary and Martha, his daughters, are living together in the Celestial Heavens. Minor word differences, and the closing sentence is additional.
63 II/336 When the Divine Love comes into the soul, the lesser Law of Compensation is removed from the scope of its working. III/401 Perry is very happy to tell Mr. Padgett that he is praying to the Father with all the longing of his soul for an increase of His Love, and that he will soon be in the Third Sphere. Minor differences, other than the fact that it appears the word “love” has been transcribed as “Divine Love” in Vol II. A closing sentence has been left on this copy.
64 II/336 When the Divine Love comes into the soul, the lesser Law of Compensation is removed from the scope of its working. IV/268 Spirit’s experience in progressing into the Divine Spheres. Almost identical. Does not have the closing sentence found in Vol III.
65 II/340 There is nothing in existence or in the knowledge of man comparable to the Bible - except the truths that Jesus and the Celestial spirits have written through Mr. Padgett. III/305 Jesus comments on a sermon delivered by Rev. William Sunday - entitled: “There is appointed once a time for man to die and after that the Judgment.” Very minor word differences, except that this copy also has one additional sentence, which is not of much significance.
66 II/342 Helen is glad about Mr. Padgett’s better soul condition. III/307 Helen was also present at Rev. William Sunday’s services with many others including his special guardian, John, and is happy that Jesus was able to make a good rapport with her husband. Has extra paragraph about soon writing a long letter. Otherwise identical.
67 II/354 Paul - continued from preceding message. III/183 Paul writes about the resurrection of the body. Minor differences, including “deviation” for “derivative”.
68 II/382 John -The truth as to the Hells. III/101 John confirms that Swedenborg and Herod gave true descriptions of the Hells. Minor differences including “necessarily” instead of “never”.
69 III/23 Jesus promises to come and reveal the Truth and Untruth of the Bible to Mr Padgett. III/207 Jesus is anxious to explain the truth and correct the untruth as it is known. An amazing number of small differences for such a short message. None material.
70 III/51 Ann Rollins answers many questions for him on the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly Father. On page 52 in the second last paragraph is found “he”, which is clearly a reference to Jesus, whereas the copy uses “God”. This is a subtle alteration of meaning, but which can be understood by careful reading by the initiated. Page 53 second last paragraph, a sentence starts “The vicarious suffering“ but the copy reads “No vicarious suffering” which entirely alters the meaning. One entire paragraph is out of sequence. IV/188 Early message from Mr. Padgett’s grandmother, intended to enlighten Mr. Padgett, so that the Truths later on in the formal messages would contain more exact explanations that the Celestials, including Jesus, would be able to give to the world. A long message, with many poor transcriptions, and a few serious errors. The meaning is entirely altered by the absense of “not” on page 188, third last paragraph, where we read “It is necessary…”. There are an additional two sentences in the first paragraph.
71 III/85 Jesus writes about a visit by Mr. Padgett to spiritualist medium and advises him to help her to discover the Divine Love of the Father that is now justly due her since she has been seeking the greater Love since early Childhood. IV/162 Jesus gives advice for Mr. Padgett to help a medium into a knowledge of the Divine Truths. Almost identical, only a few trivial differences.
72 III/89 Jesus says: The preacher was limited in describing one of the Attributes of God, and that is the Loving Care that He has for His children. IV/159 The things material that men pray for are answered by God by using spirits for that purpose. One phrase additional, and “living” instead of “loving”
73 III/92 White Eagle under Jesus’ direction helped to correct Mr. Padgett’s digestive organs, as a result of his prayer to the Father for help. IV/63 White Eagle under Jesus’ direction helped to correct Mr. Padgett’s digestive organs, as a result of his prayer to the Father for help. Identical, including the heading. Only typographical differences.
74 III/103 Cornelius tells of the great spiritual audiences that attend the writings received by Mr. Padgett and listen to what is said. The additional material is inserted in the middle of a sentence, and it is not at all clear the insertion pertains to this message. It could come from an out of sequence page. If the 3rd Dec 1916 is not a Sunday, then the insert is false. The title does not align with the message, as the spiritual audience is attending a sermon given by an unnamed pastor. IV/211 Commending the Prayer given to mankind by Jesus. This is shorter by two paragraphs.
75 III/122 Helen writes that she was impressed with what Mr. Padgett said to Dr. Stone about the Love of God flowing into the heart; also locates Judge Syrick’s Soulmate. IV/235 Helen writes about the true Love of the Father and introduces Judge Syrick’s Soulmate; Rose wrote to him for the first time while he is still on earth. While there are a number of minor differences, in this copy a page appears to have been inserted out of sequence, as the copy in Vol III reads much more sensibly. This insertion is also in the middle of a sentence.
76 III/137 James A. Garfield has been seeking truth with his mind. Mr. Padgett tells him about seeking truth with his soul. III/369 Garfield is grateful to Mr. Padgett for the opportunity to write and obtain help, for a confused mind. A number of mistranscriptions exist in both copies, with the later one probably the worst.
77 III/139 Mr. Riddle comments on Mr. Garfield’s writing, and his own progress. III/371 Riddle feels that Garfield will now seek Jesus as a result of Mr. Padgett’s encouragement. Although short, this copy has a few errors of transcription.
78 III/139 Mrs. Padgett confirms that Garfield wrote. III/371 Helen confirms that Garfield wrote and that he is a wonderful spirit. All but identical.
79 III/217 St Celesia tells of how she was killed in Rome and her work now trying to help Mr Padgett to do the work of the Master to better understand Jesus mission. III/242 St Celesia, was martyred by church of Rome, is very much interested in Mr Padgett’s mission and is trying to help do the work of the Master. A number of transcription errors in both.
80 III/293 Judge Syrick tries impersonation to test Mr. Padgett’s soul perception. Shorter, but virtually identical to that point. IV/256 Syrick tests Mr Padgett against imposters that often try to write under an assumed name. Has a final paragraph.
81 III/293 Helen confirms the test that was made by Judge Syrick. Almost identical, but “sympathy more” instead of “something new” IV/256 Helen confirms what Judge Syrick wrote is true as they wanted to make a test.
82 III/294 Judge Syrick confirms many things that Mr. Padgett told him about life in the spirit world. IV/239 Frank D. Syrick’s first effort of communication after sudden passing into the spirit world, after only a short period of spiritual investigation on earth. Insignificant differences.
83 III/303 Helen comments on Billy Sunday’s sermon, to the effect that his teachings are directed towards the progress of the soul and the perfect man. Only a few differences, but this copy is worse. IV/355 Helen says that all preachers cannot teach the Higher Truths. (Comments on Rev. Billy Sunday)
84 III/319 John gives reasons why corrections have to be made in the New Testament and that James is the real brother of Jesus. Appears a very poor transcription, very loosly transcribed with many small errors. IV/192 All the writings of the New Testament, as they now exist, contain so many things which the original writers did not write, teach or believe in. Missing the first sentence, otherwise very similar to the copy below.
85 III/319 John gives reasons why corrections have to be made in the New Testament and that James is the real brother of Jesus. Appears a very poor transcription, very loosly transcribed with many small errors. IV/233 John states that he knew James the Lesser very well, that he was the real son of Joseph and Mary, and that Jesus was his brother in the flesh. He further states that this James the Lessor became the First Christian Bishop of Jerusalem.
86 III/364 Cousin Laura Burroughs tells of meeting her soulmate. Only has one error “fight” for “gift”. IV/117 Mr. Padgett’s cousin has found her soulmate, thanks to Helen Padgett. There are errors in both copies, but this is the worst.
87 III/365 George E. Luckett is surprised to hear about soulmates, as written by his cousin, so moved to write. IV/124 A confirmed bachelor decides he will try to get into the proper condition that will enable him to meet his soulmate. Part of a sentence has been left out.
88 III/394 Perry is feeling better and is grateful for all the help given to him by Mr. Padgett and other loving spirits. IV/375 Perry is better and has started to believe as a result of the help received by the bright spirits. Very minor differences.
89 III/394 Perry’s mother expresses her gratitude to Mr. Padgett for his efforts in permitting her son to see the light. One additional word. IV/376 Perry’s mother is grateful for the help that Mr. Padgett gave to her son.
90 III/395 Helen wrote that Perry is praying for Divine Love and is commencing to realize the great love that his mother has for him. A number of errors, “teachers” for “the Doctors” IV/376 Helen confirms the happiness of both Perry and his mother, and is happy that he asked both Dr. Stone and Mr. Padgett to pray for him.
91 III/397 Mr. Forrest is commencing to realize that there must be a God of Mercy and Love with the help of Mr. Padgett’s wife and grandmother. IV/372 Forrest is gradually coming out of darkness with the help of Helen and Mr. Padgett’s grandmother. Both copies have minor differences, and a phrase that is additional.
92 III/398 Helen writes that Forrest is praying earnestly for the Divine Love and is progressing, and was so anxious to write. IV/373 Helen also writes about the help that Mr. Padgett’s grandmother gave to Forrest. A number of differences in both: “nevertheless” for “but never less” and “which will have its ending when eternity shall pass away” and “never have its ending in all eternity”
93 IV/10 John states the great importance of Jesus message in selecting his friend Dr. Stone to also perform a great work in behalf of the Kingdom. Identical. IV/201 John assures Mr. Padgett and Dr. Stone of all the wonderful powers of Divine Love that will be bestowed upon them as workers for the Kingdom.
94 IV/11 Mrs. Stone: Urges that Mr. Padgett, Dr. Stone and Eugene Morgan never doubt that they have been chosen to work for the Kingdom. IV/99 Priscilla Stone, Wrote Immediately After Mary. This is all but identical, only “objects” in place of “;object”.
95 IV/29 Mary confirms the writing of James IV/46 Mary says that St. James takes a special interest in him. Minor differences only. Eg “much” for “such”
96 IV/105 Mary says that what Helen wrote about soulmate love also applies to Leslie and her. That their soulmate love can never be taken from them. IV/200 Mary writes that earth, stars and suns may pass away, but a spark of soulmate love will never cease to exist. Very minor differences.
97 IV/121 The wonders, benefits and blessings wrought by the Divine Love of God. IV/292 Helen’s description of the Celestial Heavens above the seventh sphere. Probably the longest duplication. This copy has an additional closing paragraph, and shows evidence that comments which show Helen in a slightly poor light, have been excised from the copy on page 121.
98 IV/135 Luke comments on a preacher’s sermon and advises Mr. Padgett to cultivate the friendship of this preacher in order to help him to better understand the Truth. IV/359 Luke comments on Rev. J. S. Gordon’s knowledge and faith as well as belief in the Bible. Only two significant differences: “constructions” for “restrictions” and “unconscious” for “consciousness”.
99 IV/152 John Mark: Spiritualist teacher’s lack of knowledge of the Truth. The importance of the Truth being made known to all souls. One difference “pitiable” for “ probable” IV/196 The importance of spiritualist teachers knowing the truth about the physical part of creation as well as the relationship of things spiritual.
100 IV/153 Paul: The Apostle to the Christians urges Mr. Padgett to bring the message of Jesus on “The Soul,” as well as the present message, to the spiritualist. IV/197 Paul the Apostle comments on the importance of spiritualist leaders knowing and teaching the Truths of the Divine Love. The first four paragraphs are missing from this copy. Minor differences.
101 IV/172 Jesus writes, that Mr. Padgett’s prayers have been answered and is now ready to receive Jesus’ teachings on the Truths of the Father. The additional paragraphs do not seem to suit the flow of this copy, but as it is an early message, it may be correct. IV/190 An early message from the Master, preparing Mr. Padgett to receive the formal messages. This copy has minor differences, except for four additional paragraphs.
102 IV/174 Ann Rollins confirms that Jesus wrote the preceding message. IV/191 Ann Rollins: Affirms that Jesus wrote. Short and virtually identical.
103 IV/205 Ruth’s trust in the Father’s Love OTS Ruth’s trust in the Father’s Love. Not strictly a duplicate of Padgett’s. This message was received by Dr Samuels, not James Padgett, and is also published with Dr Samuels works.
