Sitting in the seat of the scornful…

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!

    Psalm 1:1 “Bless is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.” (Wow, just noticed this is the very first Psalm!)

    I was wondering about sitting “in the seat of the scornful”… what does that mean exactly?

    Scornful from the 1828 Dictionary:
    1. Contemptuous; disdainful; entertaining scorn; insolent.
    2. Acting in defiance or disregard.
    3. In Scripture, holding religion in contempt; treating with disdain religion and the dispensations of God.

    I think it also applies to how I see my fellow Christians … many who call themselves Christians can seem so clueless and un-Christian at times and it may be easy to dismiss them and scorn them. I have to be careful not to find myself in the seat of the scornful, but to see them correctly. This is a good reminder.
