"Interlaced ambiguities of being…"

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. 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; 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!

    “Christian Science…shows the scientific relation of man to God, disentangles the interlaced ambiguities of being, and sets free the imprisoned thought.” (S&H 114:23) Webster’s 1828 Dictionary helped bring this inspired thought more to light.
    “Disentangle” — unravel; free; extricate from perplexity
    “Interlaced” — intermixed, i.e., mixed up
    “Ambiguities” — doubts; uncertainties
    Before Christian Science, I was filled with doubts and questions, such as “why am I here, what is the purpose, is there a reason for all this?” I was badly mixed up, confused, constantly bound up in intellectual, godless thinking. What a relief, comfort, and joyous freedom to finally learn that God is Mind, my mind, the only mind; that God loves me and all, that God has only good for all, never condemns, and there is nothing ever to fear, and that Soul is God, not some undefinable thing inside me that is forever stained with sin. This was so very different from the religion I was raised and educated in — really “imprisoned” in. I am reminded of Hymn 201:
    “Truth will from error free
    Your long enslaved mind,
    And bring the light of liberty
    Where it shall be enshrined.”

    Thank you Lesson-writers for these helpful lessons.

    Thank you for this post, that I can relate to!

    When we are freed from our “long enslaved mind”–then we are finally free to “radiate good” (instead of “absorb evil”) and then to truly help others! I was a slave to self-absorption for years and didn’t even know it, until the light of true Christian Science teaching found here in Plainfield finally shone upon me “the light of liberty.” Hallelujah!
