Pride and Fear Unfit

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!

    Science and Health, p. 30 Pride and fear are unfit to bear the standard of Truth, and God will never place it in such hands. Here are two qualities that won’t do if we are to work out our salvation. Must watch out for them. Instead meekness and might, as Jesus demonstrated, gets the will of God done; what great qualities to emulate. Good to read this again and again.

    How true. Pride and fear only harm the person being prideful and fearful. And so unnecessary.

    Pride and fear are poisonous illusions of mortal mind, imaginations, nothingness. Such a waste of time and energy.
