FROM THE BIBLE CODE TO THE KEY TO THE
Browsing through book stores today, one finds shelves of
books discussing Spirituality, New Thought, and Self-Help. They all broadcast a
similar message. Yet the book upon which they are all based is practically
The person (woman) who walked this earth over a hundred
years ago, who founded this message in human consciousness, is still mostly
unknown even today.
We read Dan Brown and books on the "Bible Code," and her
book isn't even mentioned, but Mary Baker Eddy gave us the First Edition of
SCIENCE AND HEALTH in 1875, and by 1910 when she rose from view, she had step
by step, in over 420 editions of the "Little Book", raised world consciousness
gradually, but so compellingly, that her message has literally changed the
world. The "Little Book", which reveals the Key to the Scriptures is entitled,
"Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures", is thought of as a religious
textbook of a particular sect or religious church body.
This is the "Little Book," that Albert Einstein referred to,
when he said, "You people have no idea what is in this book". Before him, an
eminent electrical engineer, a student of the study of physical science,
Fredrick L. Rawson, wrote a comprehensive volume entitled, "Life Understood",
fully supporting Mary Baker Eddy's findings after thoroughly researching and
proving to himself how such dramatic statements could possibly be true from the
standpoint of electricity, chemistry and mathematics.
Today's scientist speaks of matrices and algorithms,
referring to the structure or womb from which information springs forth. Mary
Baker Eddy showed how the components of a very complex matrix is the
foundation, structure and development of all existence. Both the real spiritual
universe and its counterfeit can be traced back to this matrix and is evident
in man, animal, plant, mineral etc.
There are many who read and study the "Little Book" who have
favorite passages which have helped and healed, but few know the flow of Life
presented, or about the many books published, helping to explore the deep and
vast underlying Science embraced within this matrix of Divine Life.
Mary Baker Eddy is prophesied in the book of Revelation in
the Holy Bible. As her life on earth unfolded, she realized this fact, and very
carefully followed Bible prophecy step by step as she lived her way, studying,
praying, and healing the sick, eradicating sin and raising the dead.
Having finished her work with the 1910 Edition of the the
"Little Book," she founded her symbolic church, as it rose from the City Four
square to the Church Universal and Triumphant.
At a meeting of the Christian Scientist Association, April
12. 1879, on motion of Mrs. Eddy, it was voted "To organize a church designed
to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate
primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing."
A decade hence, in 1892, the Church Triumphant appeared,
"The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which was
designed to be built on the Rock, Christ; even the understanding and
demonstration of divine Truth, Life, and Love, healing and saving the world
from sin and death; thus to reflect in some degree the Church Universal and
"The Comforter" has come. The "Little Book" is here.
The last lesson in Mrs. Eddy's series of Bible lessons for
her students is titled "Is The Universe Including man Evolved by Atomic
Force?"The "Little Book" has given the answer, "Atomic action is Mind."
In her day, few had heard of atomic energy. Today we are
fully aware of it, in its counterfeit status, as the belief of a material force
that frightens with its potential to destroy all of civilization.
But, Wait! Read the "Little Book". Read it from beginning to
end. Eat it up. Digest it's message. It tells you of the Power of the Word. It
is the Line of Light. It is the true Power behind all positive thinking. It is
the true knowledge of the One God. The SCIENCE of LIFE.
