Silence the Lie

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!

    “The material senses originate and support all that is material, untrue, selfish, or debased. …We must silence this lie of material sense with the truth of spiritual sense.” Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, p.318

    (1828 Websters) Silence: To put an end to; to cause to cease, to silence complaints or clamor, to restrain from noise or speaking, stillness, calmness; quiet; cessation of rage, agitation or tumult; absence of mention.

    This word “silence” caught my attention after the Lesson last week on the Comforter, “who is to be with the disciples forever, arguing down opposition and silencing cavil(objections).”(from Pulpit Commentary) This Comforter being the Science Mrs. Eddy discovered. Since coming to Plainfield I am learning how to use this Science to “silence,” “all that is material, untrue, selfish, or debase” and be more consistent in my practice of it. Recently I have been taking some notes on an index card during our Roundtables. I keep the card with me to use during the week. This week in my notes I have, use hymns to lift thought (writing them down using them through out day); focus on my blessings; make a list of what God has done for me; work with the article, “The Attitude of Love” by Edward Kimball. The notes make useful mini Watches. I am so grateful for the deep, generous, life changing teachings we are freely given here!
