Neither mesmerism, hypnotism, theosophy, esoteric magic nor wicked mental or audible arguments can affect me. God governs me. Justice, Truth, Love govern us, and nothing else can or does affect us in the least.
(Thrice each day from one half to one hour.)
Then have faith in God. Know that faith as a grain of mustard seed can remove mountains, and have no faith in evil. Know that it cannot do anything, that it is nothing. Know that God is all. The wrath of man shall praise Thee and the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain. All things work together for good to them that love God. See I Thess 5. Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.74)
Why did God give His only begotten Son? John 3:16
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)
Take half an hour each day to declare the Truth about mental malpractice. When you do it know that you are handling error that is trying to prevent Christian Science from raising the dead. Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Mary Baker Eddy’s Lessons of the Seventh Day, p.137)
MATERIAL CHURCH ACTIVITY – 14
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)

TO THE WATCHERS WHO ARE MISTAKEN
Disband your meeting today and never meet again to do what is not carried out scientifically. Each one do the work of daily duty. Each one realize the allness of God, good, and that there is no opposite evil. Do not meet together to discuss or to direct the prayers of Scientists unless I call you together. Each one pray daily and not ask amiss. I have known of the discord before of prayer that is amiss., You all can know that newspaper men will not publish aught against Christian Science. Please know this – and also know that you can do this separately as well as together.
Mother, M. B. Eddy
I forgot to say this: Take up nobody personally but let your prayer be impersonal and God will bless the right. Do not think of me or my affairs. Let God do this and you invoke a general blessing. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.12)
MATERIAL CHURCH ACTIVITY – 13
The smartest business man is not scientifically a safe business man. He is not as smart as God, while he thinks himself smarter and is quite unconscious of this thought. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.11)
