Shorn of its strength

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!

    “Physical science (so-called) is human knowledge, –a law of mortal mind, a blind belief, a Samson shorn of his strength. When this human belief lacks organization to support it, its foundations are gone. Having neither moral might, spiritual basis, nor holy Principle of its own, this belief mistakes effect for cause and seeks to find life and intelligence, in matter, thus limiting Life and holding fast to discord and death. In a word, human belief is a blind conclusion from material reasoning. This is a mortal, finite sense of things, which immortal Spirit silences forever.” (S&H)
    This is such a powerful statement as it strips bare human belief to its total nothingness. First any belief needs human organization to support it – without that it fails. This can be the danger of organized religion, education, material medica etc. If one is not alert and aware of the truth, these institutions perpetuate false beliefs. When false beliefs, however, are exposed by the truth of being, they have neither moral might, a spiritual basis nor a holy Principle – what else is left?! They are nothing more than blind conclusions, imposters – “which immortal Spirit silences forever.”!! Mrs. Eddy is very specific and thorough in her denunciations and destruction of any form of error! We cannot afford to be otherwise!
