"he commandeth the unclean spirits"

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!

    “…there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.” Luke 4

    I cannot imagine describing Jesus as having an unguarded moment without a chance to “edit out his anger” or that his rebuking sin was a short coming – (as has been written about our Leader Mary Baker Eddy and her rebukes) There is no way human anger or an unguarded moment could have cast out the devil nor kept Jesus safe from a crowd after he confronted the error. Neither could have Mrs. Eddy faced attacks and heal if she did it out of unguarded anger. Their lives proved their teachings. I have never witnessed a reaction of anger heal anything since it makes evil personal and uses will power but as taught at Plainfield, “sets the battle in array.” I can see that holding a human sense of what Jesus and Mrs. Eddy where doing when confronting error would really darken thought and impede true healing and the reverence needed to understand their teachings. Those receptive acknowledged the power.
