The First Commandment Bases The Science of Being

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 340 : “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus xx. 3.) The First Commandment is my favorite text. It demonstrates Christian Science.
    The divine Principle of the First Commandment bases the Science of being, by which man demonstrates health, holiness, and life eternal.

    This Truth of God’s Allness, expressed as His Omnipotence, Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omniaction from the spiritual fact that there is none beside Him is extremely helpful to keep constantly in thought. It helps to strip error of its disguise as something real! Because of this we can accept our perfection as His reflection; since there can be nothing imperfect, discordant or vile in connection with perfection. There is NOTHING outside of that PERFECTION. Keeping this in thought I can be consistent with what is my true being of health, holiness and immortality; what a foundation to work from each day!!


    Thank you for this wonderful post which reminds me that I can “keep it simple”: if feeling overwhelmed, I can go back to the straightforward and powerful First Commandment. It immediately puts everything into perspective!
