Freely Given

We gladly welcome your comments on our Forum and Bulletin Board but we do maintain the right to edit and/or take down anything we 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!

    Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. I Corinthians 2: 12

    This statement stood out to me. We have received the spirit of God, so that we might know the things that are freely given to us. Freely given. No strings attached. The spirit of things. We discern them spiritually, not materially. Not to one nationality or gender, or scholastic achiever, or financial bracket. Everyone is given it. We need to open our thought and hearts to receive it and then make it our own and use it for good.

    .Matthew Henry says, “Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God, that we might know the things freely given to us of God; not the spirit which is in the wise men of the world, nor in the rulers of the world, but the Spirit which is of God, or proceedeth from God. We have what we deliver in the name of God by inspiration from him; and it is by his gracious illumination and influence that we know the things freely given to us of God unto salvation”—that is, “the great privileges of the gospel, which are the free gift of God, distributions of mere and rich grace.”

    Thank God for Christian Science and the Plainfield Church and its teaching.

    Thank you! I especially like to think about the gift of the gospel. The teaching of the Bible at Plainfield has opened up a whole new way of thinking and praying. A whole new understanding that is unfolding.
