The Final Combat?

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 268 Materialistic hypotheses challenge metaphysics to meet in final combat.

    We are in that final combat, where there is so much emphasis on reliance on materiality on one hand: incessant advertisements to promote reliance on medicine, so much about how to make your body perfect, vitamins for longevity, understand the brain, material prosperity as a goal, belong to such and such social organization etc. The contrasting pull is the call to seek God first and have all that is important added to us.
    SH 311:28-32 Matter, sin, and mortality lose all supposed consciousness or claim to life or existence, as mortals lay off a false sense of life, substance, and intelligence. But the spiritual, eternal man is not touched by these phases of mortality.

    May we also work to remain in earnest, to strive for the realization of the Truth of our true being as: “Jacob conquered material error with the understanding of Spirit and of spiritual power.” We can gain the same results: “This changed the man.” SH
    Many are waking up to see how they have been and are being fooled by the deceptive evil of life in matter; the question to ourselves must be, am I living as God’s own child (in the realm of Soul) or am I in the Adam dream (life in matter?)
