The LORD is good to all

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. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    I was struck by the first statement in the responsive reading. There may be some who may not believe that the Lord is good to literally everyone, but this is because of the misconception of good. Too many consider good based on their personal preferences and whether they are satisfied. In Science and Health on page 587 is a definition of good which says “God; Spirit; omnipotence; omniscience; omnipresence; omni-action.” So, we have the true concept of good as divine, which is no respecter of persons, and yet is personal in the sense that it is available to help in every circumstance. Good is always present and always acting, our part is to pray for the light which sees this. On page 13 of Science and Health is the assurance “Love is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals.” God does not have any favorites, He is good to all.
