Oneness and Atonement

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!

    It was suggested to me to read about Atonement in Bicknell Young’s article on Oneness in his Collected Writings…. here is a section of it, “The atonement is an exact science. Therefore, to be understood, it must be demonstrated, and that means individually. It becomes clearer and clearer to every student, that he must progressively gain a better understanding of what atonement is, and individually prove it. The atonement teaches us the Science of our oneness with God, and because it is Science, we must demonstrate it in our daily lives, by overcoming sin, sickness and death, and over all suggestions which would claim an existence apart from God. Jesus did not say, “My Father and I are two,” but ONE. In speaking of this oneness with God, Jesus could not have meant twoness; otherwise he would have said, “I and my Father are two.” He was impressing thought with the fact that there was only one Being, not two. God being God-being and man-being.”

    This is wonderful to read and ponder the entire selection.
