Angels

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!

    “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” (Psalm 91: 11)

    “ANGELS. God’s thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality.” By Mary Baker Eddy, from Science and Health, page 581

    “Counteract: To make ineffective or restrain or neutralize the usually ill effects of by means of an opposite force, action, or influence.” Webster’s Dictionary

    This week I was given the above definition of Angels by a Plainfield practitioner to work with. I really appreciated Mrs. Eddy’s first part of the definition, “God’s thoughts passing to man.” Here is a promise and directive. I see now it is God’s thoughts not mine providing, “spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortality,” and God that is, “counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality.” My job is to stand porter at the door of thought to keep out “the offending errors.” (S.& H., page 382). I am so grateful for practitioner support and the carefully chosen materials on the Plainfield website to help.
