Spirit, Not Matter Is The Only Real Foundation

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!

    This Lesson does make clear how our only real foundation is Spirit.

    From John 6 we read: It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
    From SH 269: Other foundations there are none. All other systems — systems based wholly or partly on knowledge gained through the material senses — are reeds shaken by the wind, not houses built on the rock.
    And no wonder 1 Cor. 1:29 tells us:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    This point is so important, it reminds me of how any human analyzing, any system originating from the brain is NOT a solid foundation from which to gain permanent conclusions. Thus what a folly it is to practice Science starting from effect. I used to often start with making the problem real and then applied the Truth, bringing the immortal to the mortal.

    It is Spirit, God’s Allness alone , which is our sure foundation. “All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation.”
