The Seven Principles of the Human Constitution
In regard to man’s mortal and immortal life, we have placed these seven principles into two groups – one containing the three higher principles and therefore called the Triad, the other containing the four lower, and therefore called the Quaternary. The Triad is the deathless part of man’s nature, the “spirit” and soul of Christian terminology; the Quaternary is the mortal part, the “body”, of Christianity.
The following is a brief outline of these Seven Principles, providing only a small segment of a large body of knowledge. We would suggest a thorough study of these principles in order to fully understand their meaning.
