Again, this may sound like a worn out phrase but history teaches us what to say a€?noa€? to and what to say a€?yesa€? to in our healing work. The Pastor of the Christian Science Church is Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and The King James Bible. Whata€™s important to you human opinion coming from personality or Goda€™s Word that heals?
Each week serious Christian Scientist enjoy getting to know their books by marking their Lesson Sermon for the week.
Again you dona€™t have to recharge a hard bound book, use electricity or deal with the bugs of new technology.
A Practitioner is a Class taught Christian Scientist who is in the public practice of healing through prayer.
These people should not be expected, more than others, to give all their time to Christian Science work, receiving no wages in return, but left to be fed, clothed, and sheltered by charity.
Again, this may sound like a worn out phrase but history teaches us what to say a€?noa€? to and what to say a€?yesa€? to in our healing work.A  History in Christian Science explains why certain things are done in the Christian Science church service and why healing is a big part of Christian Science and why healing is as possible today as it was in ancient times. One of the unique things about Christian Science is the Lesson Sermon.A  The Lesson Sermon can be found in the Christian Science Quarterly and is by divine design meant to heal.
Travelling thousands of miles from home to start her college career is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape an event that changed her life forever. Forget trying to get a book deal because the newest way to get your novel out there is to just go ahead and do it yourself. SugarscapeBeing part of the New Adult genre that seems to be taking over YA at the moment, Wait For You is naturally full of more hot boys and steamy snogs than you can count.
Eddy who have taken it upon themselves to assume in their biographies that they know what Mrs. Eddy states that a€?Christian Science and Christian Scientist will, must have a history.a€? (Misc. The Bound Volumes of the Christian Science Sentinel and Journal are gems to our healing work today.
Eddy had preachers like all churches but then personality took over and preachers started preaching from the standpoint of their personality and worship so Mrs.
Reading straight from the books allows for no mistakes or human personality and maintains the purity of the Christ Science.
This means that to mark your book you need markers for the particular size of books you have, chalk and chalk holder plus an eraser. If you were in pain would you like to wait till the practitioner was through with his day job before you get relief from pain. Eddya€™s answer about paying a practitioner from her writing in Rudimental Divine Science page 23. Neither can they serve two masters, giving only a portion of their time to God, and still be Christian Scientists. Teachers hold class once a year where they explain more about how to heal as Christ Jesus did. Standards in Christian Science are to live a loving Christian life proving Goda€™s great love for man. Teachers hold class once a year where they explain more about how to heal as Christ Jesus did.A  The teacher that God has chosen for you is like a marriage. That's exactly what author J Lynn did and it's obviously worked out pretty well, with her debut New Adult novel shooting to the top of the New York Times Bestseller list. That said, this one is so much more and while the story itself is pacy and original, we challenge anyone not to swoon their way from start to finish.In fact, this book is probably the literary equivalent of the gooey, chocolate cookies hottie Cam is always baking for Avery. These early workers proved in their lives what they had learned in how to heal with the comforter. History in Christian Science is important because it tells us where we have been and where wea€™re going in our healing work. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days, Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. We are a church of a€?Laya€? people meaning that we are a€?alla€? students of Christian Science. Eddy wrote the by-law that the only preachers in a Christian Science church would be The King James Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
In staying close to your books you will learn the different books of the Bible as you mark and the different chapters in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Eddy states, a€?No copies from my books are allowed to be written, and read from manuscripts, either in private or in public assemblies, except by their author.a€? (Misc. Manual that states the Journal and Sentinel are to be part of the service although they are considered organs of the church.
But if you are a member of another church and want to advance in your healing work in Christian Science then you will want to dissolve your membership with that church and become a member of a Christian Science church. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.a€? There is constructive and destructive criticism. Christians Scientist who want to remain close to their books mark their books each week in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and the King James Bible.
It's warm, sweet and whatever you do, you won't be able to stop yourself coming back for more. The old articles in the Christian Science Journal and Sentinel are just as relevant today as they were in Mrs. Eddy states in her book Miscellany 181:2, a€?It is authentically said that one expositor of Daniela€™s dates fixed the year 1866 or 1867 of the return of Christ - the return of the spiritual idea to the material earth or antipode of heaven. You want to keep mortal personality out of your talking and listening to God which is the reason photos of me will not be used on this website. She did not like personality worship because she did not like her own personality to be worshiped.
Eddy states, a€?God is Spirit; therefore the language of Spirit must be, and is, spiritual.
As you read the Lesson Sermon you can read more than just the citations but you can read around the citation to get a clearer view of why this citation was chosen, who is speaking and was this a person in the Old or New Testament. Also in a recent article in the Wall Street Journal The ABCa€™s Of E-Reading talks about that at the moment the page numbers on these E-Readers is not there. Scripture is read along with the quiet simple Truth of Science and Health with Key to the Scripture by Mary Baker Eddy.
By that it is meant that you cannot advance if the teachings of another denomination are the opposite of what you are learning in Christian Science. Also in a recent article in the Wall Street Journal The ABCa€™s Of E-Reading talks about that at the moment the page numbers on these E-Readers is not there.A  a€?Page numbers are a problem for e-books, since the number of words on a virtual page depends on the size of the screen and type.
Leta€™s look at the definition of church in the S&H Glossary on page 583.A  Does it say anything about a€?traditional ceremoniesa€?? They dedicated their lives to God and Christian Science because each of them were healed in their own lives. In the We Knew Mary Baker Eddy series book three, Calvin Hill said this in an interview with Mrs.
She ordained Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and The King James Bible as the only pastors.
Christian Science attaches no physical nature and significance to the Supreme Being or His manifestation; mortals alone do this. Many times Ia€™ll see people reading from one of the magazines while the service is going on. Wednesday night is testimony night, it good to have in thought what you would like to say if so moved to give a testimony of healing. Christian Science is Christian Science and it doesna€™t make you better in your own religion. Certainly you dona€™t ignore pain in the body any more than you ignore someonea€™s actions that are causing problems for themselves or others.
Some of the first healings people may experience are the falling away of habits for coffee, tea, drink, and smoking. Great minds think alike and all that.If that sounds like your kind of thing, click here to read the first two chapters for free. The Word of God, the language of spirit is just as powerful to heal today as it was in Christ Jesus time. For example, recently a person reading the lesson from the full text Quarterly could never figure out why there werena€™t balloons and a band when Jesus came out of the grave. Remember God is everywhere filling all space so God can heal anywhere, anytime, in any place. Today there seems to be Christian Scientist who dona€™t want to face the pain of not attracting new members and so take down standards in church. Because the Christians Science Service comes from each individuala€™s own inspiration and what they understand about God.
Church Manual makes no provision in the list of services for such a€?traditional ceremoniesa€?. A Practitioner is expected to pay their bills in a timely manner.A  Also paying a practitioner is being grateful for the help received. Today there seems to be Christian Scientist who dona€™t want to face the pain of not attracting new members and so take down standards in church.A  They call these a€?standardsa€?, tradition.
Check out the Reading Room where you can find the Christian Science Journals bound from the time of Mrs.


Eddy statement, a€?No copies from my books are allowed to be written, and read from manuscripts, either in private or in public assemblies, except by their author.a€? (Misc. They want a quick fix by adding entertainment to the service or bring in bean bag chairs to sit on.A  Is this healing? My personal letters and correspondence are kept so that if someone was to question a piece of my writing I then have the documentation to show in a court of law.
We the workers of today are proving in our lives that Goda€™s word is power and Principle that heals. I have been studying your book, Science and Health, and your other writings for the past four years, and if what is said to me by one of your own students or by one of your studentsa€™ student is not backed up or verified by your writings, I take not stock in his statements, none whatever!a€? Mrs.
Eddy knew that the Bible used in Germany was not the Kings James Bible so she did not specifically state in the C.S. As a divine student he unfolded God to man, illustrating and demonstrating Life and Truth in himself and by his power over the sick and sinning. Eddy made history and it is important to understand her in history, that isA  her place in prophecy.
Just because a teacher has a high position in the Church doesna€™t make them a good teacher. Then they want to be cool and mimic other churches with their a€?new ageya€? saying,a€? I dona€™t judge, I just love.a€? These people dona€™t like the pain of seeing empty pews because they dona€™t want to face what needs healing.
These healings are the more obvious.A  Every member in the Christian Science church is working on some kind of healing. I brought him to Your disciples, but they couldna€™t heal him.a€?A  Jesus replied, a€?You unbelieving and rebellious generation! Eddy stepped forward, placed her hand on my shoulder and patted it gently, saying, a€?My child, my child, my child, youa€™re safe, youa€™re safe, youa€™re safe!a€? Mrs. Human theories are inadequate to interpret the divine Principle involved in the miracles (marvels) wrought by Jesus and especially in his mighty, crowning, unparalleled, and triumphant exit from the flesh. The answers to every problem is already there in the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scripture (MBE). Eddy was challenged about who wrote her writings and she had the documentation for the court to see.
As the prophecies of these two last chapters refer chiefly to Eastern empire, while the little horn, chap.
Reid wrote and article in the 1897 October Journal titled a€?The Second Coming of Christa€?. Eddy had the opportunity at that point to correct him about who to look to or in Bible terms, who to a€?turn toa€?. But by all her writings and using over a thousand passages from the King James Bible, logic dictates the KIng James Bible is the Bible to be used as the Pastor.
Evidence drawn from the five physical senses relates solely to human reason; and because of opacity to the true light, human reason dimly reflects and feebly transmits Jesus' works and words. Look for patterns, such as Man's struggle to be free from an oppressor, whether it's Jews in Egypt or an oppressed diseased body. This statement alone could read a€?I dona€™t think, I just lovea€?.A  Does this statement mean we dona€™t a€?train up a child in the way he should goa€? as the Bible states? Although these modern day biographers books have some good quotes from the notes, you need to look at the books kind of like fiction.
Always go back to your books, look up statements made by other people and read for yourself to get clarification. Also, in marking your books you contribute to not wasting paper having to buy a full text quarterly each month or printing the lesson from the computer. I had a friend who could not join a church because she had the thought that these members were perfect as mortals and she had high expectations for these mortal members. Bring him here to Me.a€? Then Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and from that moment the boy was healed.
In writing biographies in this day and age, the books are considered a a€?creative non-fictiona€? genre so you need to sift through what part is the authora€™s 21st Century slant and actual facts. When you buy your complete set of books (S&H - King James Bible) you dona€™t have to replace batteries, use electricity or upgrade.
She expected the student to listen with inspiration expecting good with their thinking centered on God. She would become offended if members did not live up her to her high expectations of them as a mortal or what her five physical senses were saying to her. Then the disciples approached Jesus privately and said, a€?Why couldna€™t we drive it out?a€? a€?Because of your little faith,a€? He told them. Also in writing this type of genre the author needs to take into consideration eyewitnesses like family and friends. Eddya€™s writings are the ultimate source for answers because they take you back to the Bible and in turn back to God. Although these are conveniences nothing takes the place of marking your books and getting close to your books.
Some parts of the service like in the formal sense of the word a€?Readera€? means you need to be a member of the church but to give a testimony means that you can participate whether a member or not and that you used an inspired citation(s) from the Bible or S&H. The Christian Science bound volumes (past Christian Science Journal and Sentinel magazine) found in Reading Rooms are a wealth of inspiring articles on healing over the years. There should be a healing message in both the music and the words.A  Promoting personality worship of singers or song writers in a church service is not Christian Science.
1866, toward the close of the present century, by which time many expect, and more hope, that both Popery and Mahometanism will be overthrown.
The goal to be rid of smoking, drinking, tea, or coffee is a good way to begin a€?seeinga€? what you can do in the way of healing and then becoming a member of the church.A  In a church atmosphere you are still working your salvation out.
However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.a€?This same story is repeated in Mark Chapter 9, vs.
Manual is very clear about the type of music and musical instruments to be used in the service.
In church and out of church we must a€?See the man of Goda€™s creatinga€? which includes women too. Just reading the Lesson Sermon for the week doesna€™t mean you have a€?studieda€? the lesson. Studying the Lesson involves reading citation around the marked part of the lesson, looking up words you dona€™t understand, maybe writing out an outline to get the completeness of the Lesson. And listening to God because he dearly wants you to understand the qualities and attributes of yourself as image and his deep love for you as his child. I was there for forty days and forty nights, all that time I ate no food and drank no water. The Lord gave me the two tablets on which God had written with his own finger all the words he had spoken to you from the heart of the fire when you were assembled at the mountain.
Christian Scientist face the problems down and out of thought by using the many Truths that are found in Mrs. At the end of the forty days and nights, the Lord handed me the two stone tablets inscribed with the words of the covenant.Matthew Chapter 4, vs. 1-2 (NLT): Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil. 16-18 (NLT): And when you fast, dona€™t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting.
Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. As you can see above: Demons are cast out, the Holy Spirit speaks, Moses received the Ten Commandments, and Jesus had the strength to overcome Satana€™s temptations. It can strengthen our faith and get difficult prayers answered.There are different types of fasting.
We are trying this for 21 days to achieve some answers from God and help get some desperate and difficult prayers answered.
Fasting, praying, and special giving during the first month of the year sets the tone for the rest of the year. Fasting should be done in combination with things that can increase your faith, wisdom, and hearing from the Lord.
Read a good Christian book, read Goda€™s Word in the Bible, listen with praise and worship to Christian music, and of course pray. Thought for the week:A  For more advice and understanding read a€“ a€?Fastinga€? by Jentezen Franklin.
22-24: The Lord God used the rib of the man to make a woman, and then he brought the woman to the man. And the man said, a€?Now, this is someone whose bones came from my bones, whose body came from my body. 13: If a man has sexual relations with another man as a man does with a woman, these two men have done a hateful sin.
Most are basically good people that give to charities, help with the homeless, do good deeds and are friendly and nice to people.
There are gay celebrities on TV that do wonderful works of mercy and charity for other people. However, if you are gay and dona€™t turn from your present life style and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will go to the pool of fire (Hell).
Yes, there is such a place and it is for eternity.A  If you intend to do it a€?somedaya€™, I hope you dona€™t get hit by a car and die before that happens.


He wrote the rule book (the Bible) and it is expressed in it several times that he feels the punishment for this is death. We are all sinners in one way or another and must try hard to turn from our former self before we knew Jesus as our Lord. To the ones who say it is genetic or upbringing, I offer this: Alcoholism can be passed down through genes and wife-beating can be passed down through upbringing. God is the highest authority, how do you think he will judge according to the Ten Commandments and his Word in the Bible? Hook up with a good faith based organization like a€?Food for the Poora€? or a€?World Visiona€? and help these people out.
God Bless.====================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 1-21-2010. We run the risk of becoming weaker when we stay at home, so gradually we wona€™t even notice. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.a€? Notice it says he is looking for someone, like a lion does.
They need Christian friends and other Christian adults if they are to survive in this world. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.a€?7 Because we need the help of good people. Pastors cannot serve full-time, a building cannot be purchased, missionaries will not be sent out, ministries to the community wona€™t be fulfilled, and the lost wona€™t be saved. And how can they preach unless they are sent?a€?10 Because God says we should go to church regularly. 30-31: And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will morn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. 10: But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a mighty roar and the elements will be dissolved by fire, and the earth and every thing done on it will be found out. 36-43: But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. In (those) days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark.
Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of the night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into.
So too you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come. Pilots vanish, drivers vanish, wives vanish, neighbors vanish, and it is a world wide supernatural event that happens at the exact same time. There are no second chances of dropping to your knees and asking for forgiveness because it comes and goes in a blink of an eye.
Wars, Nation against Nation, famines, earthquakes, natural disasters, and a sin loving generation.
I always interpreted the a€?He will come like a thief in the nighta€? as have a duel meaning. Some people know in advance when they will die and they, believe it or not, are the lucky ones. Hint: It is hot, miserable, people are gnashing their teeth and screaming, and your caretaker has horns --------- hhmmmmmm.
However, if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and turned your life around you will be going somewhere that is truly pure love.
If I am wrong, then worms get me just like you but if I am right I live in love and you dona€™t. I just dona€™t know where people get their ideas from because the Bible tells it like I do. Also, it is also true that before Jesus came to the earth as a man, that all the pagan nations were defeated by Goda€™s people the Israelites. Why ---- because the Israelites worshiped the only God there is and the pagans worshiped false ones.
A PS:A  Hope youa€™re not on one of those planes where the Pilot is a follower of Christ when the Rapture comes. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I was impressed by the many many friends who came to offer condolences and said kind things about her. To go through life with so many people that call themselves your family around you is a tribute to the love that is shown and radiates from you. Some are acquaintances, some good acquaintances, others are friends and still others are good friends. I think I need to add a new one that shows love beyond that of the latter a€“ it is family.
Thought for the week:A  Happy Valentines Day !!!!!=============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 2-22-2010. You see the fire trucks pull up and the fire men run from the trucks, get their ladders, hook up the hoses and then ------- sit down and take a coffee break. Your company is told that there is a mother and two children screaming for help from the third floor and they are close to being consumed by the flames. You and your men run over to see what instructions he has but he presents all of you with some Coffee and doughnuts.
All of us know of people, friends, and family that have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and are not saved. They are like the family in the house.A  Because of pride, fear, or some other human emotion, we either do not share the Word with them or are not persistent with it to get them saved. The people we know then end up dying either naturally or prematurely in an accident and end up burning in the ever lasting flames of Hell. 18-20: And Jesus came and said to them, a€?All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. There were actually two letters that I have combined and edited to eliminate the womana€™s identity. It is offered here as another a€?building blocka€? about evangelizing and spreading Goda€™s will. I agree that we are all called to share the gospel with others and that we often fall short of that.
The Holy Spirit is the one who draws them, ("No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him" John 6:44) convicts them and makes them see that they are sinners. People are drawn to God in us when they see something about us that they dona€™t have and they are made thirsty for.
But they all have heard the truth many times and they refuse to acknowledge that they are sinners in need of a rescue. My part is to pray for them, live my life for Jesus (let my light shine) and share the truths of the gospel when there is an opening to do so.
It took many years, but I am at peace knowing that if they die without knowing Jesus therefore spending eternity in hell, that it was their choice. Another interesting fact is that we have different witnessing styles and people respond to different styles of witnessing. But perfect love casts out fear" 1 John 4:18) To love others more than yourself and to know that without Christ they will spend all eternity separated from Him. When I go on mission trips, I pray for the hearts of the people that God is going to put onto my path and I pray that God would give me His eyes to see them as He sees them and His heart to love them as He loves them, and His words to speak to them.
Although it is debated if they are actually God speaking, they are recognized by most as books that are still good to teach from. Still others like the book of Sirach which is used a lot by the Catholic church brings question into mind that it may have been eliminated by Martin Luther just as a statement to his rebellious nature within that church. He even wanted to eliminate other books including the book of Revelation but, as history records, -- cooler minds prevailed. 60: Then all the people shouted and praised God, who saves those who put their trust in Him.
Someone had a dream that as the soldier drew back to hit Christ that he grabbed the soldiers arm. As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them;Mark 16, vs. The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood among them and said, a€?Pease be with youa€?.
A Jesus also appeared to 500 others, Saul (whom later became Paul), and to his disciples again when he rose up and ascended into Heaven.
Since Biblical times the tradition that the Roman Emperor Domitian ordered that the Apostle John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil has been widely held.
