Mixing the spiritual method with human desire…

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!

    In the Carpenters’ book, 500 Watching Points, No. 178 stuck out for me this morning.

    WATCH lest you continue to mix the spiritual method with human desire, and believe yourself to be a progressive Christian Scientist. Mortals brings into Christian Science the human desire for ease and comfort in matter, and attempt to mix this with the spiritual method, which has for its purpose to free mortals from illusion. If they are not progressive, they will continue to use this method as an easier way of obtaining and maintaining human health and prosperity, than a material one. Such as attitude fails to perceive the value in human affliction.”

    The value of human affliction… In looking back, I’m so grateful for the strengthening of my faith during the three months I could not see. I truly felt the presence of Christ with me as I was at peace and realized more fully that I am not a body but a spiritual idea in the Mind of Love. Now, I take no thing for granted…so eager to live fully each day in gratitude for every little thing, knowing God is the Giver of All Good, and Love is reflected in Love.

    Thank you for all your loving support!

    Joyful blessings,

    Rae
