Don't Scattereth Abroad

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!

    “He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.” Matthew 12: 30

    This sentence reminds me that when we go about our day, we can’t be half-way in our declarations of Truth or application of Science. It means every moment we actively strive to practice and demonstrate God’s Love but also forcefully handle all error, which can be pounding on the door or knocking gently (bland denial of Truth). It can be easy to fall into “la-la land” when everything is going well or take a “day off” here and there, as was mentioned in the Roundtable on Sunday.

    From Pulpit commentary:
    “Indifference in this case is only another name for opposition; not actively to help is really to hinder.”

    From Elliott’s Commentary:
    “In the great struggle between light and darkness, good and evil, God and the enemy of God, there is no neutrality.”
