Sibling rivalry starts here

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!

    “Eve’s declaration, ‘I have gotten a man from the Lord,” supposes God to be the author of sin and sin’s progeny. This false sense of existence is fratricidal.” (S&H) The story of Cain and Abel is the first example of sibling rivalry. It is another one of the “beliefs” of material existence and it must be seen only as a belief so that can be destroyed with understanding that God is the Creator of all and He created all spiritually. Many suffer into adulthood with the so-called negative effects of sibling rivalry. This need not be! Christian Science comes as the great Deliverer freeing mankind from the bondage of believing man was born into matter, and that some are more loved and cherished than others, that jealousy and competition is the norm and all the other nonsensical illusions of the dream in matter. Remember this statement in Science and Health to be the truth of your being – “In Science (you are) the offspring of Spirit. The beautiful, good, and pure constitute (your) ancestry….Spirit is (the) primitive and ultimate source of (your) being; God is (your) Father, and Life is the law of (your) being.”!!
