Governed By Soul

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!

    How wonderful to be re-assured again and again with the spiritual fact that the real man, our real selfhood, is governed by Soul! That we need not dwell with the sense of pain, in other word those aches and pains that cry for attention can be silenced with the fact that we are only subject to the law of Spirit, not the so-called laws of matter!!

    Much gratitude to Mrs. Eddy for all the Truths she has given us, below are a few:
    SH 120:11-12 … for matter can make no conditions for man.
    SH 120: 15-17 Health is not a condition of matter, but of Mind; nor can the material senses bear reliable testimony on the subject of health.
    SH 122: 1-2 The evidence of the physical senses often reverses the real Science of being, and so creates a reign of discord
    SH 475:13-16 Man is idea, the image, of Love; he is not physique. He is the compound idea of God, including all right ideas; the generic term for all that reflects God’s image and likeness.


    This from the Bible stood out this morning:
    Job 12:10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.


    Thank you! ….governed by Soul… The 1828 Webster Dictionary says in part about govern,” To maintain the superiority, to direct, to control, regulate by authority, restrain , administer the laws.” Being governed by Soul is a holy blessing.


    Thank you, both! This morning I came across a beautiful statement by Mrs. Eddy, one I want to always remember and put into practice:

    “A little more grace, a motive made pure, a few truths tenderly told, a heart softened, a character subdued, a life consecrated, would restore the right action of the mental mechanism, and make manifest the movement of body and soul in accord with God.” (Misc. Writings) 354:15-18

    A light, easy read, but a steady reminder that moment by moment vigilance is necessary…so many “I’ll handle that later” guilty dictates from mortal mind will deter the work.

    Thanks again for a powerful Bible Lesson.

    Joyful blessings,


    Thank you all! So powerful, so helpful, so very much appreciated!!
