They who do good from truth, and not yet from good, are in the lowest of the Lord's kingdom, 6396.
They who do good from truth, and are not yet in good, do good from no truth, 6405;
they induce disorder in the natural, because they almost close the interiors, 6406.
When anyone does good for the sake of good or for the sake of truth, it is for the sake of the Lord, 9210;
and this should be the head, and himself and gain should be the sole of the foot, 9210:2.
To love good and truth for the sake of good and truth is to love the neighbour and God, 10310.
To do good and truth for the sake of good and truth is to love the Lord above all things, and the neighbour as oneself, 10336:4.
Charity and the Church.
They who are of the external Church have an internal in their worship, if they are in charity, 1083:4, 1100.
From the charity with himself each one can know whether he has internal worship, 1102e, 1151, 1153.
The holy thing of worship is according to the quality and quantity of the truth of faith implanted in charity, 2190.
The doctrinal phase of faith does not make the Church, but charity, 1798, 17992, 1834, 1844.
Charity makes the Church, not faith, 809.
There is not any Church where charity is not acknowledged as its essential, but rather as if it were from faith separated: illustrated, 4766.
The Church is not from the truths only of faith, but is where charity is, 58262.
There is no Church unless the truths of doctrinal matters are implanted in the good of life, 3310.
The internal of the Church is charity towards the neighbour in willing, and from willing in doing, and therefrom faith in perceiving, 4899:4.
The Church is spiritual when it acts from charity, not because it says it has faith, 916.
There is one Church, although several, when love to the Lord and charity towards the neighbour are its essentials, 2982.
The spiritual Church is everywhere varied as to truths, but is one by means of charity, 3267:2.
Although doctrinals are varied, still the Church is one, if all have charity, 3451, 3452.
How much of good there is in the Church if charity has the first place, and faith the second: illustrated, 6269.

The Church is one if all have charity, although they vary as to worship and doctrinal matters, 1285:3, 1316.
The Church would be one, if all had charity: such was the Ancient Church, 2385.
The Church in the course of time recedes from charity, 1834:2, 1835.
In the last times there is not faith, and then no charity, 1843:2.
Charity and the Word.
The Word is vivified according to everyone's state of charity and innocence, 1776.
Those who are not in charity, but only in the knowledge of the cognitions of faith, can never see the interior things concerning love and charity, in the Word, 3416.
The Word is unclosed or opened when love to the Lord and charity towards the neighbour are esteemed, as the beginning; and when faith is so esteemed, it is closed up, 3773, 3793.
Charity and the Regenerate Life.
No one is regenerated unless he is endowed with charity, 989.
When a man is being regenerated "seed" cannot take root, except by means of the good of charity, 880.
The increase of good and truth with man is according to the charity in him, 1016:2.
He who lives in charity receives from the Lord truth suitable to his good, 3267:3.
How truth is implanted in the good of charity, when a man is being regenerated, 2189:2.
The Lord fits the good of charity to truths when a man is being regenerated, thus He meets them, 2063:3.
They who are in charity have a dictate and law written in themselves, and are received as citizens everywhere on earth, as in the heavens, 1121.
None are saved by faith, but by the life of faith which is charity, 2228.
Truths of faith do not save, but the goods of charity in the truths of faith, 2261:2.
If cogitative faith, not life, were saving, all would be introduced into heaven, 6639:3.
The light of the regenerate is from charity, not from faith, 854.
Unless doing good is conjoined to willing good and thinking good there is no salvation, that is, unless the external man is conjoined to the internal, 3987.
The reason why they separated faith from charity, and said that faith saves, 2231:3.
The life of charity according to the Christian precepts saves, but not the life according to natural good, 7197.
Good is not good, nor is it fruitful, until a man is regenerated, because, before this the soul itself is not in the good, 3186.
To know or understand truth, to will truth, and to be affected by truth or charity, follow in regeneration, and these things afterwards continue in charity, in order, 3876, 3877.
There must be innocence and charity that truth may be conjoined, 3111.
Those who exercise charity from obedience are regenerated in the other life, 989e.
Charity in the Other Life.

They who have lived in charity return to all their states of delight, in the other life, 823.

Intelligence and wisdom grow immensely in the other life, with those who live in charity, 1941.
All are consociated in the other life according to loves: according to love towards the neighbour and to the Lord, in heaven; and according to the loves of self and of the world, in hell, 7085.
All who are in heaven are kept looking to the Lord by means of love to Him, and also by charity towards the neighbour: illustrated, 9828:2.
The angelic life consists in use and the good works of charity, 454.
Angels communicate their good to another, so that they are willing to give all, and then more flows in for increase, 6478;
but this is dissipated when it is thought of as recompense, 6478.
Angels are forms of charity; which is described, 553e;
they are forms of love and charity, 4735:2;
from the good to which truth is conjoined, 3804:2.
The odours of charity and faith are agreeable, 1519.
They who separate faith from charity make charity meritorious in the other life, 2371:6.

Spiritual heat or love, and spiritual light or faith come from the Lord as the Sun of heaven, 7083.
Doctrine of Charity.
There is a doctrinal of charity, and a doctrinal of faith, and it is obliterated at the present time; the doctrinal of charity was in the Ancient Church, and from it they knew what the neighbour was, and what the poor, orphans, widow, etc,, 2417:2.
Concerning the doctrinals of love and charity, of the ancients, 3419, 3420. See DOCTRINE.
The doctrinals of the Ancient Church were those of charity, and their cognitions and scientifics consisted of knowing what the rituals of the Church represented, and largely what other things in the world represented, 4844:4.
In what ignorance they are who are in no doctrinal of charity, 2435.
What the doctrinals of charity and of faith, or of good, of the good of truth, and of truth, are, 2567.
The doctrinals of charity, 4955. See DOCTRINE.
The Doctrine of Charity, 6627-6633, 6703-6712 (but there concerning the neighbour, see NEIGHBOUR), 6818-6824, 6933-6938 (see NEIGHBOUR), 7080-7086, 7178-7182, 7255-7263, 7366-7377 (see LOVE OF SELF), 7488-7494, 7623-7627, 7752-7762, 7814-7821, 8033-8037, 8120-8124, 8252-8257, 8387-8394, 8548-8553, 8635-8640, 8742-8747, 8853-8858, 8958-8969, 9112-9122.
The particulars of these articles are as follows:
The doctrine of charity was the doctrine in the Ancient Churches, 6628;
therefrom they were wise, 6629;
but wisdom left them, 6630.
The doctrine of charity is among the things that are lost; when yet the Word is nothing else than the doctrine of charity, 6632.
Because the doctrine of charity is lost, the doctrine of faith is, therefore, much alienated from the truth, 6633.
Charity is not to be indiscriminately the same towards all, 6703.
Love is the source of the life of man, and it is the ruling love; concerning which, 7081.
It cannot be known what good is, unless it is known what love to the Lord and love towards the neighbour are, nor what truth is except from good; and it cannot be known what evil is, unless it is known what the love of self and the world is, nor what falsity is, except from good, 7178, 7255, 7366.
There are two faculties, one called the understanding, for the truth of faith; and the other called the will, for the good of love; and they are conjoined; with whom they are conjoined, and with whom they are not conjoined, 7179.
They ought not to be separated; what it is o be condemned, thus to have no faith or charity, 7180.
It is necessary for man to know what good is, that he may know what heaven is, and what evil is, and what hell is, 7181.
Love relates to good and truth, 7256.
The good of love to the Lord is called celestial good, and the good of charity towards the neighbour is called spiritual good, 7257.
The doctrine of love to the Lord is the most extensive and the most secret, and the doctrine of love towards the neighbour is extensive but not so secret, 7258.
Because this doctrine is extensive the ancients distinguished charity towards the neighbour into classes, and gave to them names; concerning which, 7259, 7260.
Those names were given to them from heaven, 7261.
Their doctrine of charity taught how charity was to be exercised towards those who were in each class, 7259, 7261.
Therefore, in the Word, names are such, and spiritual states are signified by them, 7262.
The Word is the doctrine of charity: shown, 7262.
There are two things which proceed from the Lord, Good and Truth, and they are united, so also in heaven, and they are charity and faith, in the Church, 7623, 7624.
An idea of good and truth, or of charity and faith, can be formed from the sun and the light therefrom; what it is in spring and winter; and there is such a comparison in the Word, 7625.
Man is a garden if these are conjoined, and is as a desert if they are not conjoined, 7626.
Everyone can see from natural light that good and truth agree together, not evil and truth; and the same is attested by experience, 7627.
All things relate to good and truth, so all things of the Church to charity and faith, 7752-7754.
The first thing of the Church is charity, and the second, faith, 7755.
The good of charity enters through the internal life, and faith through the external: illustrated, 7756.
The conjunction of charity and faith takes place in the interiors of man, and good there adopts truth, 7757.
Unless conjunction takes place, charity is not charity, nor is faith, faith, 7757.
Faith when it is conjoined to charity is charity, 7758.
The good of charity has its quality from the truth of faith, and truth its essence from that good, 7759.
The good also has its quality from the abundance of truths, and their connection, 7760.
Spiritual good saves, but not natural good; because spiritual good is the plane of angels, but not natural good, for it can be more easily led away into falsity and evil than into truth and good, 7761.
The confidence which pertains to faith, is from love, not from faith separated, and it is not from truth, 7762.
Man can look above himself and beneath himself, 7814.
He looks above himself when he looks to the neighbour, his native land, the Church, heaven, and principally to the Lord, 7814, 7815, 7817.
To look above oneself is to be elevated by the Lord, 7816, 8604:2.
One looks to the world and self, when he looks at those things which relate to heaven, and the Lord, from behind, 7817.
To look above oneself and beneath oneself is to have as an end and to love above all things, 7818.
A man can love himself and the world, also eminence and opulence, but as a means to an end, and then it is good, 7819, 7820.
Man is distinguished from the brutes by the fact that he can look above himself; and that to look beneath himself is to be a beast, but to look above himself is to be a man, 7821.
What charity and faith are, 8033-8037.
Charity is the internal affection of doing good, and the delights of life, 8033.
Faith is the affection of knowing what is true and good, which conjoins itself to charity; it conjoins itself with charity by that truth which it wills to do, 8034.
They who are in charity and faith acknowledge that everything of charity and faith is from the Lord, 8035.
Heaven and the Church are with those who are in charity; and they are the regenerated, and those who have the new will and the new understanding, 8036.
Those who are in the love of self and the world, do not know what charity and faith are, and that it is given to do good without recompense, and that this is heaven; they believe there is nothing of joy, if they are deprived of the things that belong to self, when yet heavenly joy then begins, 8037.
It is believed that to give to the poor, to aid the needy, and to do good to everyone, is charity, but it extends itself wider, 8120, 8121.
It is to do what is right, just, and good in every work, and in all functions: illustrated, 8121, 8122.
The reason is that a man, society, the native land, the Church, the Lord's kingdom, what is good and just, are neighbours, 8123.
They who are in charity are a charity in everything they think, speak, will, and act, 8124.
The life of piety without the life of charity conducts to nothing, but the life of piety with that of charity conducts to all things, 8252.
What the life of piety, and the life of charity are; these consist in uses, 8253.
The worship of the Lord consists in the life of charity, 8254;
A man remains such as the quality of his life of charity is: shown, 8256.
The life of charity is according to the Lord's precepts; that life is spiritual; to do what is just and honest, apart from the precepts, is civil and moral life, 8257.
The forms of hatred and charity cannot be together, 1860.
All blessedness consists of good and truth, and these cannot flow in from anything but the Lord; which is evident to everyone, from the light of reason, 2363:2.
They who look to doctrinals, and not to life, do not think of the soul or the life after death, and conversely, 2454e.
Who are in the affection of good, and who are in the affection of truth: passages cited, 2422, 2930:3.

The Lord is one with the Father; the universal heaven is His; from Him is all innocence, peace, love, charity, mercy, conjugial love, and everything good and true; and Moses and the Prophets, and all the rites of the Church of the Jews, relate to Him, 2751.
