"Divine Love is Present"
 
"So let us be awake to the demands of the hour whenever we hear of a meeting or a conference taking place. It may change the whole history of the world. Let us remember that divine Love is present at those meetings to save, to unite, and to show the way, and that animal magnetism cannot operate at any time, through any channel, or in any way to separate people or nations. Let us see that there's one Principle, one power, governing, and that that one Principle is divine Love." How Divine Love Meets the Human Need, by Clifford and Daisy Stamp, p. 88.

"Eternal man recognized"

"A knowledge of error and of its operations must precede that understanding of Truth which destroys error, until the entire mortal, material error finally disappears, and the eternal verity, man created by and of Spirit, is understood and recognized as the true likeness of his Maker". Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 252:9.

Government
Topic from Association Address of 1934
by William Duncan Kilpatrick, C.S.B.
Posted

"We should all know daily the truth about government. We should work for government. Mrs. Eddy tells that she worked daily for the government, and it is evident that she intended that all of us should do likewise. Our work for government, as in all other things, should be in the absolute. We should know that there is but one government, and that that is the government by Mind of all its vast creation of ideas. We should recognize the divine Mind, or divine intelligence, the divine esse, the isness of all existence, as the only cause and creator, and that the manifestation or outcome of this divine Mind, this one supreme and good consciousness, are ideas. We should know every day that these ideas are created, controlled, governed, directed, outlined, placed and activated by this one all-knowing, all-seeing, all-wise intelligence. Intelligence, in and of itself, is creator; is director; is governor and administrator of all law and order. We should know that in the realm of the real (and that is the only realm there is, and that realm is here and now), we live, move, and have our being; that in this realm, everything is idea, and idea is an expression of an all-seeing and all-knowing intelligence; that because of this, all time and place and space are done away with as objects of matter and material phenomena, and in their place there is naught but idea. We must know that because of this truth about government, the only truth there is, is the truth about God and man in God’s image and likeness.

Man is in his right place here, now and eternally. Man is governed, controlled, directed, supplied and protected by that Mind of which he is the expression. Man can express and be conscious of naught that does not come from his Principle, God. Therefore, man is the expression of God’s government, God’s law and God’s dominion. The only community there is, is the community of right ideas; the only state there is, is the state of spiritual consciousness, and the only nation there is, is the nation of spiritual ideas created, governed and controlled by the one and only intelligence.

This knowing must not be a mere oral or mental repetition of phrases. This knowing must be based on the understanding that material existence is no existence; that it is a creation of illusion; that it is a state of mesmerism or self-hypnotism; that it is a dream which is the result of a mind which does not exist, and as 'the dream and dreamer are one,' as Mrs. Eddy tells us in 'Science and Health,' and this dream and dreamer are one in a consciousness which does not exist, then there is no state of material consciousness, and the true and spiritual becomes the only real and ever-present and tangible state of existence.

In the realm of the material, the government of a nation is divided into the executive, the legislative and the judicial branches. In Mind all of these combine in the one all-knowing intelligence, which intelligence finds expression in your and my experience in our right thinking. Thus, through our right thinking, do we bring out in our own individual lives and experiences the true sense of the executive, the legislative and the judicial. Mind creates all. It is the one and only legislator of its own vast array of laws and regulations. Mind executes these laws of its own creating, thus becoming the one and only executive, and by the enforcement of these laws through Principle, right for right, wrong for wrong, Mind thus becomes the only judiciary there is. Thus we have the executive, the legislative and the judicial all combined in one intelligence, and this intelligence, being the only intelligence there is, can know nothing of any opposite or opposing intelligence or jurisdiction. The Jurisdiction of Mind governs, includes and comprehends all existence, being and reality. Therefore there is no opposing intelligence, no disrupting intelligence, no conflicting intelligence in government or in the jurisdiction of Mind.

Thus we can say with authority, conviction and finality that there is no belief of dishonesty, greed, graft, trickery, intrigue, either material, personal or mental that can interfere with, or come within, the jurisdiction of the government of Mind. There is but one Mind, therefore there are not minds many, wills many, purposes many, differences of opinions, misunderstandings or misdirection in government. There is nothing hidden that shall not be revealed in government. Government is here and now revealed to man, and therefore there are no hidden forces, no occult, dishonest, tricky or greedy forces or elements in government, which can operate to disrupt, disorganize or destroy.

It is my opinion that the world is not yet even minutely awake to the hidden, corrupt, occult, secret and malicious forces which are constantly directed mentally and materially against modern governments, with the direct purpose to confuse by strife, poverty, wars, hatreds, misunderstandings and the like. There is no question in my mind, but that age-old forces, mental in their nature, are constantly at work to overthrow and confuse modern society to the extent of bewilderment and despair. You and I need not be concerned as to their source, their avenues of attack, the channels or modus operandi through which they propagate themselves. What we are concerned in, is that clear understanding of God which sees all of these elements of evil, mentally directed, as no part of the one intelligence, which governs and controls all of God’s vast universe of ideas. We must learn to mentally banish all of these lies of mortal mind, malicious mental manipulation, to their realm of unreality. Then we shall not only not fear them, but we shall, at the same time, individually free ourselves from the belief of power and influence which they claim to exert.

Spirituality in thought is the greatest protection that mortal man can ever have. A spiritually minded man will be able to uncover, discern and detect that which a materially minded man will mentally accept to his own undoing. A spiritually minded man can see so far beyond the evidence of the senses into the realm of the mental, which is behind the material, that his protection, his guidance and his acumen far surpass that of the man who is not spiritually equipped. Thus should the Christian Scientist be the best business man, the best lawyer, the best laborer, the best salesman there is. Spirituality in thought enables one to see beyond the material into the materially mental, and thus discern “the signs of the times” far better and far more deeply."

In the Beginning
by John Morgan
Posted
February 19

Introduction:

"Our age offers us the unique gift of an actual Science of Being. Yet the prospect of studying such an immense subject might well daunt the seeker if there were not already, in the Bible, a perfect crystallization of the basic concepts. In the idiom of the Bible, these are presented as the seven days of creation. These fundamentals were re-defined in twentieth century language by Mary Baker Eddy, who built the Christian Science textbook, 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures', upon this definition of God: 'God is. incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love'.

"The study sections comprising this pamphlet appeared originally in the 'Children’s Supplement', issued with 'Metaphysical Notes', a periodical published by The Foundational Book Company of London. They are now re-issued, with little alteration to the language, as a simple introduction to the study, suitable for the beginner of all ages."

America
by the editor of the Mary Baker Eddy Science Institute
Posted
February 3
 
Question: is America a place or is it a State of Consciousness? When seen in its spiritual connotation it must obviously be the latter.

Thus no one has to come to America but needs only to realize the reality of government under God, no matter where they are located. America is a symbol for freedom and freedom is with God, this is everywhere present, active and complete.

America was founded on the law of God, Principle (seen at the highest level of understanding of that day), that can evolve, but never change, for that is what America is, a symbol for the law and government of God. A government of laws and not people.

A symbol can be translated to its basic idea (God, Principle) a thing, a place cannot.

We today are presented via the media all the age - old pictures of "good and evil". Divine Science operating at the level of Christian Science corrects this misconception with the one value system – God good is All-in-all of which there is no other.

Only as we individually see this point can we dehypnotize the situation, disconnect from the mortal picture. Then we will see and demonstrate here and now heaven, harmony – all things working together for good – thus we have a unified field, the "Unity of Good".

Scriptural Foundations
by Mary Baker Eddy
Posted
November 3

"In following these leadings of scientific revelation, the Bible was my only textbook. The Scriptures were illumined; reason and revelation were reconciled, and afterwards the truth of Christian Science was demonstrated. No human pen nor tongue taught me the Science contained in this book, SCIENCE AND HEALTH; and neither tongue nor pen can overthrow it. This book may be distorted by shallow criticism or by careless or malicious students, and its ideas may be temporarily abused and misrepresented; but the Science and truth therein will forever remain to be discerned and demonstrated." (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 110:13-24).

Guidance of Members
by Mary Baker Eddy
Posted
November 3

"
A Rule for Motives and Acts. SECTION 1.
 
Neither animosity nor mere personal attachment should impel the motives or acts of the members of The Mother Church. In Science, divine Love alone governs man; and a Christian Scientist reflects the sweet amenities of Love, in rebuking sin, in true brotherliness, charitableness, and forgiveness. The members of this Church should daily watch and pray to be delivered from all evil, from prophesying, judging, condemning, counseling, influencing or being influenced erroneously." (Man. 40:4)

"
Daily Prayer. SECT. 4.
 
It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to pray each day: "Thy kingdom come;" let the reign of divine Truth, Life, and Love be established in me, and rule out of me all sin; and may Thy Word enrich the affections of all mankind, and govern them!" (Man. 41:19)

"Alertness to Duty. SECT. 6.
 
It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to defend himself daily against aggressive mental suggestion, and not be made to forget nor to neglect his duty to God, to his Leader, and to mankind. BY his works he shall be judged, — and justified or condemned." (Man. 42:4)

What is Christian Science?   What is Christian Science Healing?

"Christian Science is the explication of Truth, reducing to human apprehension and demonstration the infinite Principle, divine Love, God-manifested in the annihilation of sin, sickness, and death. Christian Science is Christ Science, or Immanuel knowledge, and involves the ultimate of all reason, revelation and inspiration."
