Every One of You

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!

    ACTS 2 : 38 “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” But we learn that contrary to the sinfulness of man ingrained in our past education, the real man, the man He created in His image and likeness is changelessly innocent, incapable of sin; hence when we see an error manifested by any of Love’s creation we must recognize it as a lie about God’s creation, rebuke if need be but never condemn the man or nation etc. Thus we read: “We sustain Truth, not by accepting, but by rejecting a lie.” SH p 357

    We continue our watching for the awakening of all to REPENT and come back Home to God. As we read, “The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty…..”

    Thank you! I love how it says “and be baptized” after repent and Mrs. Eddy in the Glossary says in part of Baptism, “Purification by Spirit; submergence in Spirit.” To me this means that when we truly repent we are purified in Spirit, forgiven and receive through Christ “the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
