Acting at God's direction

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!

    I love that in I Kings chapter 18 when Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal, “call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD,” to see which would answer with fire, it’s made clear that this wasn’t an idea that Elijah had conjured up, but he was simply following God’s direction, “let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.” Very different from coming up with what we think is a good idea and then asking God to bless it or make it work.
