      This model Christian Scientist is the sharpest, the surest, the most successful business man or business woman that this earth can afford. Christian Scientists — what is your model? What is your model business man — he who begins with political econo­my, human plans, legal speculations, and ends with them, dust to dust, or the real Scientist who plants in Mind, God, who sows in Mind and reaps in Mind?  Mary Baker Eddy {Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.12)

MATERIAL CHURCH ACTIVITY – 15 

      The church created, founded and erected on the rock against which the winds and waves prevail not, is the church triumphant, the indwelling temple of God; it is the mind that has consecrated its affections, its aims, ambitions, hopes, joys and fruition in Spirit, whose methods and means, plans and successes are secure; they cannot be separated from success. God is their Principle and is supreme. He doeth His own will; none can stay His hand; and His methods manifest will all be sound, square, legal, honest, decent and in order.  Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.12)

      If you have more faith in establishing Christ’s church by material organization than upon the spiritual rock of Christ, then you build upon matter instead of Spirit — build upon sand. Personal combinations, human thought and effort, material ways and means whereby to establish and maintain the church of Christ are weak, vacillating, temporal, subject to divisions, factions, feuds, and all the etcetera of mortal and material phenomena.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.11)

      No church edifice, no building fund, no money in banks will stand or is secure without the power back of the earthly thrones which is enthroned upon God. Mortals are mutable; you cannot trust them because they cannot trust themselves. There is no basis for either trust. Therefore, as trustees they must be environed and imbued with simplicity, meekness, purity, or else, sooner or later, they must be caught and fall into the meshes of their own error and the snare of the fowler. Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.11)

      The currency of government which furnishes you the means of building a church, is faith in God, obedience to God and the understanding of God. This established circulation in thought is as superior to monetary means to obtain success in church formations and the building of church edifices as these qualities of Mind are superior to drugging and drilling for health, and as Christ is beyond catnip. In the true exercise of the power of Mind, you hold in your hands the means, the methods and achievement of all that is good that conspires to benefit man and to honor God. You are His faithful trustee, and to every heir and assign of this mental condition is transmitted your wealth of wisdom and power which builds upon a rock against which the gates of hell shall not prevail.  Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.11)
