Eternal Truth, Eternal Life!

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!

    SH p 288 The eternal Truth destroys what mortals seem to have learned from error, and man’s real existence as a child of God comes to light. Truth demonstrated is eternal life.

    This statement stood out today from the Lesson. The fact that each demonstration contributes to the realization of unchanging spiritual perfect Life, must be a motivation for a joyful desiring to expose evil’s lies each time a belief is manifested. Each demonstration, whether “small” so called, or “big” confirms the spiritual truth of our perfection now, our immortality, because God, our Life is forever!

    Thus each doing their part impacts the world thought, bringing into view, the truth of our being, by correcting some of the false education that keeps mankind in bondage.

    Thank you for this post.

    This is why it is so important for us to strive to know the truth as best we can. And this can only be done by opening our hearts and paying attention to our spiritual sense, which is God (Truth) speaking to us. In S&H (p. 272) Mrs. Eddy writes: “The spiritual sense of truth must be gained before truth can be understood.” She emphasizes over and again the importance of relying on our spiritual sense alone to put into practice (demonstrate) what we know of the truth.

    And the best part is that we don’t have to know everything there is to know before we can start to demonstrate Truth. If we know one thing in Science to be true, that seed of truth contains all the power of the universe to accomplish whatever God has for us to accomplish, and to experience eternal life.
