Blessed be the Lord

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!

    The Golden Text in this week’s lesson is, “Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day.” (Ruth 4:14) The full sentence reads, “And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the Lord, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.” In this case detaching the phrase has changed its meaning, and even though it is a fact that God hasn’t left man, I wonder if it is wise to use the Bible in this way.

    I am not the Lesson writer but I have found that many times parts of an unchanging Truth has been so inspiring and fitting even for a different context.
    I feel the inspiration of the Truth, being only a part or not has not failed to be an answer to a prayer. For that I see it as Truth doing its work, comforting by removing a lie.
