    The same evening one of them told the story to the provincial governor and he, in turn, requested that Swedenborg render him a full account. The faith of the former church teaches the imputation of Christ's merit, and the imputation embraced in the faith that is given: but the faith of the New Church teaches the imputation of good and evil, and at the same time of faith, and that this imputation is according to the Sacred Scripture, while the other is contrary to it. Partly in response to the initial news of these charges, Swedenborg began work on True Christianitya systematic discussion of his theological ideas as they relate to many aspects of Christian and specifically Lutheran belief. The foundations of this theory can be traced to Neoplatonism and the philosopher Plotinus in particular. Two hours later, he reported that the fire had been extinguished three doors down from his house.

    The soul must be the link between God and man, the infinite and the finite, even though man could not see or measure that soul. In the King's service, Swedenborg acted as construction supervisor on several important public works. Swedenborgians study his theological writings and, like members of other religious sects, they attempt to put the principles expressed into effect in their own lives. During the summer he spent many hours working on his last great theological work, a study entitled True Christian Religion. Prophets and Psalms.

    During Swedenborg's final years a variety of old friends and new acquaintances wrote accounts of their impressions of him. In Decemberwhile still in London, Swedenborg suffered a stroke. From there it became dominant in Christianity as a whole. Swedenborg's purpose was to persuade the king to fund an observatory in northern Sweden. Young Emanuel showed high intellectual promise and a catholic outlook.
