Betroth

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!

    Hosea 2 : 19, 20, 23: And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. 20 I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.

    Betroth..To contract to anyone in order to a future marriage o promise or pledge one to be the future spouse of another; to affiance;…..
    Affiance…To betroth, to pledge one’s faith or fidelity in marriage, or to promise marriage.

    Our relationship to God is likened to a marriage covenant.. a spiritual union where the following qualities are maintained.

    Righteousness and Judgement:in rectitude and truth.

    Loving-kindness: is that tender affection, wherewith He cherisheth His children, the works of His hands; Mercies, His tender yearnings over us.

    Faithfulness: that whereby He “keepeth covenant forever” Psalm 111:9, and “loveth His own unto the end” John 13:1

    Thank you Mrs. Roberts, I think this goes along with the cord and bands. Long ago our pioneer mothers used a cord around their waists and attached it to their toddlers to keep them safe. Bands of love.
