Perverteth

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!

    “He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.” (Proverbs 10:9)
    A definition I found of pervert, “To turn from truth, propriety, or from its proper purpose; to distort from its true use or end; as, to pervert reason by misdirecting it; to pervert the laws by misinterpreting and misapplying them; to pervert justice; to pervert the meaning of an author; to pervert nature; to pervert truth” so fits with what occurred with the Manual after Mrs. Eddy’s passing.
    We certainly must watch that we not be similarly misled. One small step I am in the process of taking is to read the whole Manual, something I have not done before.

    So important! The changes made to Mrs. Eddy’s Manual can be likened to changing the tables of physical and mathematical constants in the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, upon which chemical engineers and physicists depend for error-free outcomes in their research endeavors.

    And so must we be careful that the Truth about our spiritual individuality be not perverted by the false suggestions of sickness, sin, wrong thoughts and everything that would seek to distort our perfection!
