“Christian Science begins with the First Commandment of the Hebrew Decalogue,’Thou shalt have no other gods before me.’ It goes on in perfect unity with Christ‘s Sermon on the Mount, and in that age culminates in the Revelation of St. John, who, while on earth and in the flesh, like ourselves, beheld ‘a new heaven and anew earth,’ — the spiritual universe, whereof Christian Science now bears testimony.”

From “One Cause and Effect” in Miscellaneous Writings by Mary Baker Eddy, page 21

Topic: Where is my confidence?

Moderator: Shahidat from MD

Bible Readings: Philippians 3

Questions:

  1. Who is speaking here and to whom?
  2. Philippians 3: 3 refers to the circumcision, who are they? Was circumcision of the flesh as described in the Old Testament still practiced at this time?
  3. The phrase “confidence in the flesh” is used twice in this chapter — what does that mean? What might have been some reasons for the speaker to put confidence in the flesh (see Phil. 3: 5 for some ideas)?
  4. What did the speaker consider a loss to him from verses Phil. 3: 7-8?
