As We Strive To Have Our Part In The At-one-ment

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!

    If Truth is overcoming error in your daily walk and conversation, you can finally say, “I have fought a good fight … I have kept the faith,” because you are a better man. This is having our part in the at-one-ment with Truth and Love.

    If the disciple is advancing spiritually, he is striving to enter in. He constantly turns away from material sense, and looks towards the imperishable things of Spirit. If honest, he will be in earnest from the start, and gain a little each day in the right direction, till at last he finishes his course with joy.

    Our text book also tells us that, “The atonement requires constant self-immolation on the sinner’s part.” SH 23:4-5 Our striving to be better is not done on our own. The following are other citations that confirm our sustenance by Father-Mother’s Love as we strive.

    SH 23:7-11 The atonement is a hard problem in theology, but its scientific explanation is, that suffering is an error of sinful sense which Truth destroys, and that eventually both sin and suffering will fall at the feet of everlasting Love.

    SH 28:6-8 The determination to hold Spirit in the grasp of matter is the persecutor of Truth and Love -yet each time we are able to resist such persecution the angels of God are ever at hand to lift us up as Christ Jesus was. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. Luke 22:43

    We should be comforted by the many instances where Jesus’ own resistance to give in to the flesh, demonstrating His consecration to the Christ, was blessed by appearing angels to prove their sustaining power. We are also sent angels to comfort us as we strive to be better men/women.
