Perfect In God

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 definition of “Perfect” from the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary:
    1. Finished; complete; consummate; not defective; having all that is requisite to its nature and kind; as a perfect statue; a perfect likeness; a perfect work; a perfect system.

    2. Fully informed; completely skilled; as men perfect in the use of arms; perfect in discipline.

    3. Complete in moral excellencies.

    Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect Matthew 5:48.

    4. Manifesting perfection.

    My strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9

    In the Lesson this week the word perfect or perfection is mentioned 19 times! This concept is something that I grappled with for a long time. We were all made perfect in God and He declares this real truth of our being in Genesis I:31
    Thank you Lesson writers!
