“This world hath blinded the minds…”

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!

    “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” II Corinthians 4 : 4

    “Rebellion: Open and avowed renunciation of the authority of the government to which one owes allegiance; resistance to lawful authority.” Webster’s 1828 Dictionary.

    The topic of rebellion was brought up last Roundtable. It was said that the Bible states in, 1 Samuel 15:23, “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.” and that we must not excuse rebellion for it is against the Christ. Rebellion would be a form of blindness and unbelief, resistance to God’s authority. It is not our thinking and we don’t have to be influenced by it. I can see why when reaching for a better sense of healing Mrs. Eddy said that we must love her more. She was the Revelator. It is said – don’t shoot the messenger. When we we truly love we do not resist the message or the messenger but obey and follow.

    “As a cloud hides the sun it cannot extinguish, so false belief silences for a while the voice of immutable harmony, but false belief cannot destroy Science armed with faith, hope, and fruition.” from Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, page 297
