“Easy to be intreated.”

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 wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” James 3 : 17

    Entreat: Ready to obey, willing to listen, to yield. Not stubborn, obstinate, controlling, overbearing, or sour.(From different sources online)

    “Wisdom: The right use or exercise of knowledge; godliness; piety; the knowledge and fear of God, and sincere and uniform obedience to his commands.” (Webster’s 1828 Dictionary)

    “…one of the signs that God’s wisdom is at work in a person’s heart is that he is “easy to be entreated.” Total Life Ministries

    “For the LORD giveth wisdom:” Proverbs 2 :6

    To depart from pride and cultivate meekness, obedience to God, honesty, patience, humility, concern for what God wants is wisdom. To get myself out of the way is wisdom. As we are told here over and over, pride is not your friend. Plainfield is the only place that I ever found addressing the “burning out of pride” with a clear understanding of the Science of the Christ and most other approaches enable pride. This is where a covenant with God is a lifesaver to keep you on the straight and narrow. I am grateful to be where this is taught and lived. Thank you.
