Building on His foundation

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!

    RESPONSIVE READING: Isaiah 28
    16. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
    17. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

    It is interesting how the masonry terms are used for this. Judgment will be uniform, and built up from the cornerstone. Righteousness will move upwards at right angles from the foundation that the Christ has laid. The storms of error will serve only to destroy itself, and the solid building of Truth will be unmoved and unaffected.

    I wondered about the line “he that believeth shall not make haste” and then I remembered working for a mason. He was very methodical and didn’t try to rush anything. The process takes as long as it takes. I can’t rush or drag my feet in this work, as the pace is set by God. I can’t miss a brick or place another in mid air, they must all go in a row, up from the foundation.

    Mrs. Eddy had a rule in her household (given in Collectanea, page 126) that I feel goes along with this: “Simplicity, accuracy, and economy. Excuses are intolerable.” For building on this foundation of Christian Science in my own life, I can think of no better rule to live by. Thank you!
