A Matter of Qualifications

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!

    Thanks for this week’s important lesson, reminding me that to become a master over sin, disease, and death requires more determination, persistence, patience, and self-sacrifice than that of the most dedicated student seeking to master a musical instrument. I cannot simply look at the violin in its case, do nothing but appreciate it for hours, dreaming, with torrents of emotion, of all the great violin masters of the past, and then expect God to place me suddenly at the footlights of Carnegie Hall.

    Thank you! I think this is one of the most helpful things to keep in mind, and you’ve illustrated it so well.

    I often remind myself of this passage in Science and Health, p. 462: “Whoever would demonstrate the healing of Christian Science must abide strictly by its rules, heed every statement, and advance from the rudiments laid down. There is nothing difficult nor toilsome in this task, when the way is pointed out; but self-denial, sincerity, Christianity, and persistence alone win the prize, as they usually do in every department of life.”
