If thou canst – believe!

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!

    “And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.” What a beautiful heart felt prayer that is! How many times, perhaps especially with loved ones in trouble, do we feel our faith falter and yet here is an example of when we cry out to the Christ, in our extremity he will come and bring relief and healing. Mrs. Eddy’s definition of “belief” in the Glossary is “Firmness and constancy; not a faltering nor a blind faith, but the perception of spiritual Truth.” This requires a day by day, moment by moment living our faith and our trust in the Father. It is not something you can conjure up at the last moment! Seeing God working in our life and in our world, seeing His creation as He made it, builds up a strong faith in Him, that will never fail or falter.
