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!

    The Responsive Reading Romans 1:16, starts out with Paul stating, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.”

    This was one of the topics discussed in our wonderful Bible Study this morning, and I just wanted to add the following from Matthew Henry’s Commentary:

    “There is a great deal in the gospel which such a man as Paul might be tempted to be ashamed of, especially that he whose gospel it is was a man hanged upon a tree, that the doctrine of it was plain, had little in it to set it off among scholars, the professors of it were mean and despised, and every where spoken against; yet Paul was not ashamed to own it. I reckon him a Christian indeed that is neither ashamed of the gospel nor a shame to it.” (emphasis added)

    In the past I used to be ashamed to share Christian Science, because now I see I was a shame to it, for I was not truly living it!!! Thanks to the teachings in this church, by learning to live it, I can now share Christian Science freely.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    A couple of random items also from Matthew Henry’s explanation of Habakkuk;
    When things look bad we are apt to aggravate them and make them worse.
    When all is gone God is still here.
    When we are full we enjoy God in all, when emptied and impoverished we can enjoy all in God.
