Bible Study Questions for May 12th, 2018
Saturday at 10:00am EDT
“With the reading of her textbook, ‘Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,’ Mrs. Eddy insisted that her students make, every day, a prayerful study of the Bible, and obtain the spiritual understanding of its promises. Upon this she founded the future growth of her church, and twenty-six years later the following … appeared in the ‘Methodist Review’ … ‘Mrs. Eddy … in her insistence upon the constant daily reading of the Bible and her own writings, … has given to her disciples a means of spiritual development which … will certainly build such truth as they do gain into the marrow of their characters. The scorn of the gross and sensual, and the subordination of merely material to spiritual values, together with the discouragement of care and worry, are all forces that make for righteousness. And they are burned indelibly upon the mind of the neophyte every day through its reading. The intellects of these people are not drugged by scandal, drowned in frivolity, or paralyzed by sentimental fiction. … They feed the higher nature through the mind, and I am bound as an observer of them to say, in all fairness, that the result is already manifest in their faces, their conversation, and their bearing, both in public an private. …’”
From Miscellany by Mary Baker Eddy, pages 48:9 – 49:1
