Excerpt from the Smillie book, given at the January 6th, 2018 Bible Study

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!

    Solomon left the nation seriously divided and his son King Rehoboam increased the difficulties. The
    prophets Elijah to Habakkuk were the only alert thinkers of the later monarchy when dictatorship and a
    totalitarian state held sway. As spiritual statesmen, these great leaders read “the signs of the times” and
    tried to awaken a people mesmerized by greed, material power, and surface prosperity. They pointed
    out the causes of national weakness and the internal corruption which was destroying the life of the
    nation. Profiteering, inflation, false business practices, and dishonesty, were all condemned by the
    prophets. They took fearless stands seeking to awaken the people and their corrupt leaders to a
    realization of their errors, and to direct them to right motives and acts.

    – from Mary Baker Eddy, A Prophetic and Historical Perspective, by Paul R. Smillie, page 45
