Christ & Christmas
Commentary by
 John L. Morgan
Christ & Christmas - The Way Windows of the Original Edifice by
 Eloise Maybury Knapp
Mr. Morgan, provides a new dimension by explaining how Christ & Christmas, fits into the total plan of completeness in the structure of all her writings.

"It is the "Scientific Translation of Immortal Mind" that alone can look behind the veil of a picture on a page and bring out the deeper meaning."



MBE Other Writings pgs 186-190
Christ & Christmas - The Way 11 of 11 by Mary Baker Eddy "This is the greatest edifice which has ever been built. And why? Because every material law and obstacle which Mortal Mind could devise was broken during the building of it by our Leader's understanding of God’s law - and in record time."  She was there!

Mrs. Eddy has referred to this church edifice as "our Prayer in stone.” (Misc.. 141:1)

"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."          - John 5:30
"The footsteps of thought, rising above material standpoints, are slow, and portend a long night to the traveller; but the angels of His presence — the spiritual intuitions that tell us when "the night is far spent, the day is at hand" — are our guardians in the gloom."

"... our material history is but the record of dreams, not of man's real existence, and the dream has no place in the Science of being... The heavenly intent of earth's shadows is to chasten the affections, to rebuke human consciousness ...and turn it.... to spiritual joy and true estimate of being."  Mary Baker Eddy

As implied in the quote, this was Christ Jesus' method of verbal communication and was strictly "non-personal."

 "Scholastic" attempts to translate the parables of Christ Jesus have been a failure.  Clifford Stamp and Rosalie Maas offer the "spiritual" view.  This opens a new dimension of spiritual enlightenment!

"The time might come when medical thought might be so organized that it would make the practice of Christian Science almost impossible" - Mary Baker Eddy.

Yes, Christian Science is Science.  Mathematics and music are a science and have a definite system with laws and rules.  Christian Science, the ultimate Science, is a complete system with definite laws and rules.

This is an analysis of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures in line with the "Science & System".

This 29 page transcript of the address delivered in 1968, by W. Gordon Brown, is a spiritual survey of the story of the Christian Science movement.  It  investigates only the basic theme of the relationship between its textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and the Church organization.

Resolving the problem of organization in connection with the Christian Science Church is vital to everybody because the issues it raises relate not merely to Christian Scientists but to the freedom and peace and well-being of mankind.
Science - Evolution of Government
"It is strange how so often, for the lack of a better way of describing Spirit, it is spoken of as the opposite of matter.  Mrs. Eddy understood that if God, Spirit, is infinite, and matter certainly is not Spirit, then matter must be nonexistent..."

"Today, physical scientists are slowly coming to the conclusion that matter is not what it seems to be, and some in desperation have even stated that it is unreal.  It would simplify matters for the scientific world if they started from the premise that .... Spirit is the only substance, because there is ample evidence of it."

  "The Law of Action and the Lie of Reaction" by John M. Tutt, C.S.B.

Law, the only true law, is the government of Principle.  The Principle of the universe is God, of whom Jesus said that He is Spirit. This Spirit, or Principle, being one and all-powerful, all-wise, and ever-present, there is evidently nothing beyond its eternal, infinite activity, or spiritual law. 

The Law of Action & Lie of Reaction

  The hand-picked references by Mary Baker Eddy for her household to study at the beginning of each day.

Since Mary Baker Eddy (MBE) was divinely inspired on everything she did, it is important to note the specific sequence of each reference, relating it to the immediate prior and subsequent reference.

Daily study of this powerful 39 section, 8 page document, offers an opportunity for you to make a profound difference in every phase of your life.
