Walk at liberty.

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!

    “And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.” Psalm 119: 45

    “He who dares not offend cannot be honest.” Thomas Paine

    Since coming to Plainfield I have been learning the word “nice” is a four letter word. To me that has meant I need to check my thoughts and motives when I feel I need to be “nice.” Trying to be “nice” made me exhausted and distressed when it didn’t work. Now I see I was losing my integrity and walk with God. Rather my walk was full of denial, dependence, enslavement, and people pleasing. The citation above from our Bible Lesson alerted me to the fact that if I want to walk at liberty I need to live God’s precepts. One of those precepts is honesty. If I am afraid to offend I cannot be honest no matter how “nice” I would like to be. I did not truly understand God and my freedom to be who He created me to be. These have been difficult lessons but the price of liberty.

    If God made us free and we continue to live enslaved,
    by whatever, does that not deny God’s Parenthood?
    This is one of the reasons why I feel I should live now fully aware of the
    rights God has given me and all His own. And I have also learned that if I
    live with the desire to please God first in all areas of my life then I will
    live the freedom He alone bestows. “Please God and you will please
    all who count!” I learned that too from this Church some years back. The freedom God
    gives includes the courage to voice the Truth and the ability to do the right things that are yours to do!

    “Am I doing your will Father?” It makes me feel very good asking this question as often as possible…..
    It helps me to obey Mrs Eddy’s instruction to pray often, “Lead me not into temptation.”
