Bible Study Questions for February 3rd, 2018

Saturday at 10:00am EST


“Apart from the usual opposition to everything new, the one great obstacle to the reception of that spirituality, through which the understanding of Mind-science comes, is the inadequacy of material terms for metaphysical statements, and the consequent difficulty of so expressing metaphysical ideas as to make them comprehensible to any reader, who has not personally demonstrated Christian Science as brought forth in my discovery. Job says: “The ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.” The great difficulty is to give the right impression, when translating material terms back into the original spiritual tongue.”

From Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, page 114
