From Mons Hugh Benson's book MORE LIGHT 1995 ed.,
"Whatever a man sows upon earth
that will he reap in the
spirit world. Such is a full
statement of the text. That is the law. The great, inescapable,
inevitable, infallible law of cause and effect. It is minutely
exact and (Mons. Hugh Benson, left) perfect in its operation.
It is incorruptibale; there is no bribery that will touch
it; no privilege can lodge a claim against it. It operates
alike upon ALL men, regardless of age or sex, regardless
of social position; regardless of ocupation. Whether 'king
or commoner,' cleric or layman, rich or poor, all come alike
under the supreme law of cause and effect, and it acts in
exactly the same manner with each individual.
There is no deviation, or variation. It is constant and
invariable, precise and exact. It cannot be tampered with;
it cannot be evadded through the supposed offices of another
person or whatever spiritual status. It is unremitting and
unrelenting. It permits the exercise of no mercy. It is
frididly just. Indeed, it is justice itself. It needs no
administration. It administers itself, truly absolutely
and irrevocably. The whole is comprehended in that brief
text: Whatever a man soweth, that also shall he reap
... Could any law be more perfect?

of cause and effect, for that is one of the Father's laws?
The answer is that the Church knows nothing whatever,
guesses a great deal - and wrongly and presumes to know
so much. And the Church has assumed to itself the care of
men's souls on earth. What a preposterous state of affairs
concerning matters that are so vital, so urgent, of such
