unimpeachable perfection

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!

    I love this lesson on Reality.

    I was struck by Mrs. Eddy’s sentence, “Remember that man’s perfection is real and unimpeachable…”

    Two things: It’s REAL, not just some kind of theory. And a curious word, “unimpeachable”. In the 1828 dictionary, the definition is, “That cannot be called in question”. So man’s perfection, is REAL and cannot be called into question!

    To me that is very comforting to know, and I must know this as the truth about EVERY man’s true spiritual nature.

    Then, I can strive to walk in Jesus’ footsteps: “The divine nature was best expressed in Christ Jesus, who threw upon mortals the truer reflection of God and lifted their lives higher than their poor thought-models would allow, — thoughts which presented man as fallen, sick, sinning, and dying.”

    I love that he “threw upon mortals the truer reflection of God”! I must see through to the reality of the unimpeachable perfection of those I meet each day.

    What a wonderful gift we have in these weekly lesson sermons.
