“Who did hinder you, that ye should not obey the Truth?”

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!

    “Who did hinder you, that ye should not obey the Truth?” (S&H 326:22)

    The first time I read this Lesson this week, this question really stopped me in my tracks. When I honestly asked myself this, I had to answer — “No one.” The only one who could hinder me, would be myself. There really is no excuse nor justification for not obeying the Truth as I have been taught here at Plainfield Church. Only a holding on to a personal sense of myself, — a belief that I can know something, or succeed in anything, apart from God. Or a reluctance to give up a cherished, but detrimental, habit or character trait that’s caused me nothing but trouble and unhappiness. I’m grateful for the practitioner who is helping me look deeply within, and helping me cast out anything that would hinder my obedience to Truth, and spiritual progress. It’s an ongoing and needed process, — sometimes painful — but always a wonderful one. Mrs. Eddy’s pure Christian Science as taught and lived here, is the only thing that has given me true health, sanity, happiness, and a purpose in life. And to let anything hinder my obeying would not only be stupid, but fatal. Thank you, Lesson-writer, for including this all-important question.
