"The Immortality of Good"

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    The following video demonstrates how a simple, inspired act of goodness is truly a substance more substantial than mortal mind can grasp, outlasting time itself: watch here.

    “In Science, man’s immortality depends” upon that of God, good, and follows as a necessary consequence of the immortality of good.” (Science and Health, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 81)

    “Befogged in error[the error of believing that matter can be intelligent for good or evil], we can catch clear glimpses of God only as the mists disperse, or as they melt into such thi nness that we perceive the divine image in some word or deed which indicates the true idea, — the supremacy and reality of good, the nothingness and unreality of evil.” (Ibid, p. 205)

    The law of the immortality of good is also exemplified in the story of Ruth, the young widow who, after having lost all material support and security, lived a life of inspired giving, serving her widowed mother-in-law as though she were serving God. It was then, after a season of unstinting selfless service that all things were added to her according to the law of the kinsman-redeemer.

    “Giving precedes receiving, and my gifts to others precede God’s gifts to me.” (Florence Schinn.)
