perfect, perfection

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!

    In this week’s lesson the words perfect or perfection appear about two dozen times. Looking for a definition for perfect in the Webster’s Dictionary 1828 Online Edition, I found as an adjective, “”Finished; complete; consummate; not defective; having all that is requisite to its nature and kind;” and “Complete in moral excellencies,” then under perfect as a verb was the following Bible quote, “If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us,” (1 John 4:12) which seems to get to the heart of the matter.
    Thanks to all of Plainfield’s lesson writers. It’s such an important function.
