Blind from birth

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!

    In this weeks lesson we read,

    John 9 (as) 1-3
    1 …as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
    2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
    3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

    Reading this passage, the words, “blind from his birth” stood out to me as never before. By my unquestioning acceptance of a physical birth beginning in this mortal world I am blinded to the Spiritual Reality that my identity is not separate and cannot be separated from the Allness that is God, Good.

    I am grateful that my eyes, Spiritual discernment, have been touched by divine Science, opening a pathway to gain an understanding of this eternal Truth.

    Mrs. Eddy writes (SH, pg. 305, 23-30) In the illusion of life that is here today and gone tomorrow, man would be wholly mortal, were it not that Love, the divine Principle that obtains in divine Science, destroys all error and brings immortality to light. Because man is the reflection of his Maker, he is not subject to birth, growth, maturity, decay. These mortal dreams are of human origin, not divine.
