Unfallen, Upright, Pure, and Free

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!

    “…man…will find himself unfallen, upright, pure, and free.” (S&H 171:8)
    I’ve always loved this quote about man, and have often used it to describe others and myself, and this morning this treatment came to me:

    I am unfallen — never fell from God’s love or out of grace; never fell in anyone’s estimation; never took a fall. I am upright — I have a backbone that stands for Truth, moral rectitude, never bending to an unprincipled demand. I am pure — my motives are pure and unselfish, my only desire is to serve God and practice Christian Science to the best of my ability. I am free — free from guilt, from resentment, from false responsibility, from any burden evil can lay upon me.
    Thank you, Lesson-writers for these Lesson Sermons.
