Stronger Faith and Purer Love

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!

    410: 14-21
    Every trial of our faith in God makes us stronger. The more difficult seems the material condition to be overcome by Spirit, the stronger should be our faith and the purer our love. The Apostle John says: “There is no fear in Love, but perfect Love casteth out fear. … “He that feareth is not made perfect in Love.” Here is a definite and inspired proclamation of Christian Science.

    Without these attributes, faith and Love, we live in fear, and our thoughts, all our motives, beliefs and days are fear-filled. Thus we cease to live, since if not loving we are not “living,” regardless of any material camouflage that could deceive that we are “living!”

    We must stay grateful it increases our faith in God’s power and Love. The effect of the command, “Peace be still” is gained when we acknowledge, respect and Love the power and love of God and revere its Omnipresence. Through faithful application of this knowing and practice to all circumstances we realize our freedom from all discords and unjust conditions. This is obedience to the first commandment.

    … “He that feareth is not made perfect in Love.” We cannot fear and say we love at the same time. Both cannot come from God. It is clear God does not send fear to His own; He sends us Love to overcome any false sense of fear.
