Christian Science is the willingness to be God’s servent. It is understanding that good is actually the only reality –that God, good, is the only power and evil has no power since God is All in all. This is articulated by Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health where she says
Moral and spiritual might belong to Spirit, who holds
18 the “wind in His fists;” and this teaching accords with
Science and harmony. In Science, you can The one
have no power opposed to God, and the physi- real power
21 cal senses must give up their false testimony. Your in-
fluence for good depends upon the weight you throw into
the right scale. The good you do and embody gives you
24 the only power obtainable. Evil is not power. It is a
mockery of strength, which erelong betrays its weakness
and falls, never to rise.
My favorite part reads “The good you do and embody gives you the only power obtainable. Evil is not power. It is a mockery of strength, which erelong betrays its weakness and falls, never to rise.”
I am reading a book right now called “What’s So Amazing About Grace” by Phillip Yancy and I love it. He is not a Christian Scientist, but he has a great deal to say about grace, Christianity, and what it means to be a Christian. At first, I was turned off, but with some encouragement from a friend, I read on and have been delighted and thoroughly satisfied with what the book had to say.
Grace, gratitude, and goodness are wonderful to behold, both in my own attitude and from others, all a blessing.
Those are my thoughts for now.
