Spiritual facts are not inverted

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!

    1. Psalm 146
    9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

    3. 207
    Spiritual facts are not inverted; the opposite discord, which bears no resemblance to spirituality, is not real. The only evidence of this inversion is obtained from suppositional error, which affords no proof of God, Spirit, or of the spiritual creation. Material sense defines all things materially, and has a finite sense of the infinite.

    I am so grateful for the lessons and what I am learning here in Plainfield. Each week there are always these points that line up and help me to understand a little more about the Bible, Science and Health, and why my life before was so topsy turvy! Mortal mind makes us feel that down is up and left is right and backward is forward if we fail to handle it!

    In Chapter 6 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, on page 129, under the heading, “Truth by inversion,” is the following:

    If you wish to know the spiritual fact, you can discover it by reversing the material fable, be the fable pro or con, — be it in accord with your preconceptions or utterly contrary to them.

    What a blessing it is that Christian Science gives us the ability to move forward (spiritually) with God — to reverse that fable! — no matter how far we may have gone wrong (materially) before. That alone is proof to me that God is Love. Thank you!
