The good fight

We gladly welcome your comments on our Forum and Bulletin Board but we do maintain the right to edit and/or take down anything we 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!

    “The result of Jacob’s struggle thus appeared. He had conquered material error with the understanding of Spirit and of spiritual power. This changed the man. He was no longer called Jacob, but Israel, — a prince of God, or a soldier of God, who had fought a good fight. He was to become the father of those, who through earnest striving followed his demonstration of the power of Spirit over the material senses; and the children of earth who followed his example were to be called the children of Israel, until the Messiah should rename them.”

    Mrs. Eddy’s revelation of the Bible is the true teaching. We are Jacob as we struggle to understand Spirit and become soldiers for God. Striving always striving to overcome material sense and find peace and joy in Spirit and are then worthy to be called the children Israel until… “the Messiah should rename them”. Thank you to our Lesson writer.

    The good fight is so that we are not blinded anymore from what is the Truth…our perfection in God. All the striving is so that we can attain a fuller view of our glorious heritage. Hence the admonition to stick to the Truth of being even if it is only a glimpse of what is true about us! We cannot allow the false concepts and senses to dominate.
