Honesty is spiritual power

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!

    “Honesty is spiritual power. Dishonesty is human weakness, which forfeits divine help.” (S&H p. 453:16)

    After coming to Plainfield, this was one of those “watershed” statements stressed in the teachings of this church that helped me realize how off track I had been living. I had been waffling between Truth and error, and this had led me down some very bad paths. To think I had forfeited divine help! I must have glossed over that passage many times.

    Now I have come to treasure this statement and stand up for what’s honest and right, like I’ve never done before. Which supposed Christian Scientist would want to forfeit divine help? Only one like I had been, who didn’t want to truly commit to God’s law. Boy, did I put myself through the wringer on that one! Plainfield helped me grow a backbone. And now I can more easily discern dishonesty in others, or to put it another way, “smell a rat”.
