MATERIAL CHURCH ACTIVITY – 7 

      If you spiritually take less thought of what appetite craves or desires, about what you eat or drink, then you will drink water instead of coffee, tea or stimulants, and save much expense in cooking and groceries. Your clothing will abide instead of pass away. Your thought will so replenish yourself with wearing apparel that your clothing will be like the widow’s oil, rather than the fashionable ladies’ wardrobe from Parisian models, and much time saved for usefulness instead of being expended on shop­ping, selecting and fitting garments.  Mary Baker Eddy     (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.11)

FROM LETTER TO JAMES NEAL – Aug, 1897 – Now dear one, watch that worldliness and the natural mortal love of human applause or any possible pride or vanity creep not into your thought for these are among the thieves that would steal into the good man’s house and spoil his goods  – take away the riches of purer and higher thoughts – which weigh in God’s scale helping you to heal the sick and reform the sinner.  To this end pray to divine Love daily: for if the good man watch, his house will not be broken open.   Mary Baker Eddy (Fettweis and Warneck, MBE: Christian Healer. P.171)

This Scientist becomes a ruler over all things, for God, good, has made him this. He has no more occasion to doubt the result of his position, for he is working out the purposes of God, good, in the way of His appointing, than he has reason for disputing the supremacy of right and the help­lessness of wrong, or to doubt the superior efficacy of Truth over error in healing the sick — the superior power of Mind over inanimate drugs, unintelligent hygienic laws, and faith in matter being superior to faith in God. He is benefiting himself and the world almost involuntarily. This moral power is as superior for success in business as in healing the sick, destroying disease, its cause and effect, antecedent and subsequent. Which do you prefer for your master, a smart man or a smart God? Mary Baker Eddy    (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.10-11)

FROM LETTER TO JAMES NEAL – JAN 1897 – Pray daily, never miss praying, no matter how often: “Lead me not into temptation,” – scientifically rendered, – Lead me not to lose sight of strict purity, clean pure thoughts; let all my thoughts and aims be high, unselfish, charitable, meek, spiritually minded.  With this altitude of thought your mind is losing materiality and gaining spirituality and is the state of mind that heals the sick.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Peel, Robert, MBE: Years of Authority, p.101)

The Christian Scientist has one Master, even Christ, Truth, the unerring Mind and spiritual Ruler of the universe. This Mind so governs his affections, faith and allegiance that he reflects Christ, and this gives him dominion over the earth. This dominion is through Mind, not matter. It is the true sense of things and not the false — the abiding sense of supply, safety, and success, even the justice, mercy, and faith that is the substance of all he hopes for and can attain.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.10)
