Spiritual Signification

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!

    SH 32 The true sense is spiritually lost, if the sacrament is confined to the use of bread and wine. The disciples had eaten, yet Jesus prayed and gave them bread. This would have been foolish in a literal sense; but in its spiritual signification, it was natural and beautiful. Jesus prayed; he withdrew from the material senses to refresh his heart with brighter, with spiritual views.

    SH 33 Let not the flesh, but the Spirit, be represented in me.

    Our unity with God is spiritual, our likeness as His image and likeness is spiritual. It is the spiritual self that is forever; it is that which is real, true and when understood and adhered to consistently gain us our freedom of perfection.

    Hence our striving MUST be to emerge from the material sense of self and material view of things for the exchange of the correct view of things; for the ability to discern through our spiritual sense. This we must do, to follow Christ’s example. There is no connection of this moral deceptive self with the Christ; and we sure cannot help ourselves and others by holding on to our material history and applying the Truth to it. Perfect God, perfect man, as the basis of healing and demonstration is about our already existing spiritual perfection.
