Bible Study Questions for October 27th, 2018

Saturday at 10:00am EDT

“Heaven is harmony, and Science brings out harmony. The greatest miracle to human sense is the wonder of divine Love. One of the grand necessities in Science is to understand the idea of God, and this can never be reached while we entertain a false estimate of the individual who voices this idea. Without a clear and correct sense of the idea, you can never assimilate its divine Principle. The botanist must know the genus and species of a plant in order to classify it correctly; and as it is with the plant, so it is with man.

“Abuse of the motives and character of Paul hid from view the remarkable nature of the apostle, which made him equal to so great a mission. Persecution not only obscured the light of the ages, but was fatal to the individual. Why? Because Paul presented the true idea of God. To misunderstand Paul was to be ignorant of the divine idea; and this lesser ignorance betrayed at once a greater ignorance as to its Principle,- ignorance of the proper Life, through which to work out the ends of eternal good, and destroy the belief in evil, and the practice of it. The Revelator beheld the spiritual idea from the very mount of vision.”

From the Nineteenth Edition of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, 1886, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 511
