Concessions Outworn

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. 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; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “I shall be with you personally very seldom. I have a work to do that, in the words of our Master, ‘ye know not of.’ From the interior of Africa to the utmost parts of the earth, the sick and the heavenly homesick or hungry hearts are calling on me for help, and I am helping them.” (Miscellany, by Mrs. Eddy.. 147:25–30). This sentence marked the closing forever of Mrs. Eddy’s concessions to unreality in serving the church she founded.

    “… [Y]ea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.” (II Corinthians 5:16)

    Like Jesus at the last supper here we find the very discoverer and founder of Christian Science herself, late in life, could no longer consent to baby-sitting matter regarding the Christian Science organization.

    “The Passover, which Jesus ate with his disciples . . . on the night before his crucifixion . . . in the twilight of a glorious career . . . closed forever Jesus’ . . . concessions to matter.” (Science and Health, 1910 edition, p. 32:28 – 33:1)

    Thus may God grant that I so follow in the footsteps of Christ Jesus and Mrs. Eddy, from matter to Spirit, from personal to impersonal, from unreality to reality, heedless of the cost.
