Flood-tides of Love

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 way to extract error from mortal mind is to pour in truth through flood-tides of Love. Christian perfection is won on no other basis.” from Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, page 201

    From Websters 1828 dictionary:
    “Flood tide: An overwhelming quantity; flow.
    Extract: To draw out by distillation; to take out.
    Distillation: Dissolve; act of purifying.
    Pour: Send forth.”

    This week when error assailed me I thought of this citation. When the suggestion that something was too hard rather than accepting this and entertaining self pity, I poured the word of God into my thought to purify my attitude. I had become so accustomed to accepting this lie that it took a surge of truth to start to dissolve this negative pull. I used gratitude, perseverance, joy, patience to help stand this lie down. The idea of flood-tides of Love was a great blessing this week. Thank you Lesson writer.
