Rolling Away the Stone

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!

    The citation #7, S&H 44:28-10 of Christ Jesus rolling away the stone from the sepulcher brings to mind the story of when Jacob meets Rachel for the first time (Gen. 29.) In those days the wells were covered with a huge stone so that it took more than one man to remove it to water the sheep. Jacob falls in love with Rachel the minute he sets eyes on her. After a discourse with a couple of shepherds who say there aren’t enough men to remove the stone, Jacob by ‘himself’ rolls away the stone to water Rachel’s flock. Divine Love rolls away all of our mortal beliefs.


    If we in obedience and humility accept the Truth that GOD IS ALL, we benefit greatly from God’s constant and loving care.
    This brings to mind what Mrs Eddy says about the might of Mind which is ours to acknowledge when faced with claims. Science and Health, p.391:7-16 Instead of blind and calm submission to the incipient or advanced stages of disease, rise in rebellion against them. Banish the belief that you can possibly entertain a single intruding pain which cannot be ruled out by the might of Mind, and in this way you can prevent the development of pain in the body. No law of God hinders this result. It is error to suffer for aught but your own sins. Christ, or Truth, will destroy all other supposed suffering, and real suffering for your own sins will cease in proportion as the sin ceases. The sin referred to is our own trust in material sense testimony, instead of allowing Truth to destroy the false senses). The might of Mind is forever present to move the dense falsehoods that would prey on us if allowed! This clears our view so we can discern what is REAL and what is UNREAL.


    … ruled by the the might of Mind which rules our anything inharmonious. Ruled: governed, administered, controlled , managed, be in authority, order , prevail, reign, preside, direct, decree, and run the show. God “runs the show”.
