Immortal, not mortal

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!

    Mrs. Eddy says in Watches, Prayers, Arguments, “How unspeakably blessed is the deliverance from the fiction of error that has deceived mortals.”

    Recently I was speaking with a practitioner on a family situation, and the practitioner pointed out to me that I was allowing human will to enter. I was grateful it was pointed out, and I started praying about human will. I realized that it is so easy for me to fall for this fiction, or lie. I thought I was leading my family in the right direction, but it was what I wanted, with no God in it. I needed to let go and pray for God’s will to be done; and, if what I wanted was God’s will, great, and if it not, He had something better.
    I found in Watches, Prayers, Arguments the statement “I (You) have no human will. God’s will is all, and I am (you are) its reflection.”

    I know God’s plan is better than I could ever imagine. I am grateful for the love of the practitioner for pointing out this erroneous thinking. This is being delivered from the fiction of error and bringing my thought back to God. I am immortal—not a mortal—and living the glorious life of an immortal.
