THE MILLENNIUM – 4 

     Christmas merriment is but the tinge of an eclipse, the relic of a tradition, for Christ was never born; the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are one in essence and in office. The Father, the divine Principle of being, the Son, the spiritual idea of this Principle, and the Holy Ghost, is Christian Science, the Comfort­er, leading into all Truth. These three are the triune God, ever-present, infinite, All. This is the monotheism of Christian Science. Let us adhere to it, abide by it, and let it abide in us in the spirit of eternal Truth. Then shall it make us free in­deed, unchained to sense, attached to Soul and immortal.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays on Christian Science, p.27)

THE MILLENNIUM – 3 

     Let us give up Jewish traditions, legends and old wives fables, ceremonies, rites and dogmas, and learn the light of Science, the Mind of God, and allow no human hypotheses to at­tempt to scale the heights of holiness, the secret of the most High, of the divine Principle that is light, Life, Truth, Love.   Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays on Christian Science, p.27)

THE MILLENNIUM – 2 

     The Jewish Sabbaths and new moons have hitherto helped hide the day-star of the eternal dawn. The Christian era ushered it into clearer view, and the Science of Christianity is bringing its full-orbed light, even the day that is not followed by night but liveth in light everlasting; and no night is there, for no matter is there to obscure the light, for Spirit is All and in its own allness, for if Spirit is God and is infinity, there is no matter wherein or whereby Spirit can be hidden or obscured.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays on Christian Science, p.27)

THE MILLENNIUM – 1 

     Is here and now, even as the king­dom of heaven is here and everywhere. God is infinite and God is good, therefore good is infinite, filling all space, time and eternity. There is but one God and there is none besides God, therefore there is no presence, no power apart from God, infinite good. The millennium is not waiting for March, 1899. The glory of God is eternal harmony, and this is the millennial glory, and it is appearing eternally brighter, and its advent in the human sense of this heaven or harmony on earth has long since appeared. And it will continue to appear in proportion to the human acceptance of the spiritual idea of God, man and His universe.   Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays on Christian Science, p.27)

“Do you approve of the theatre?”

            “That is a delicate question.  Much of what is seen at the theatre is not to be approved of — only that which is elevating.  I say this, for many of the theatrical profession and dear good people, ‘stars’ even, are loyal Christian Scientists, but I must say what I have said.”

            “The opera?”

            “We love music; it is heard at all our services.  I would say the same of that as of the drama.  The lifting, elevating, bettering music we must love.  Where it is allied to the stage in ways not elevating, I cannot approve.

            “As to dress and adornments and fashions, all that goes to beautify life and make us more pleasing in the sight of man and God is to be approved, where it is not carried to vicious extremes.”  Mary Baker Eddy     (Carpenter, Gilbert, Fragments Gathered From Unpublished Items Ascribed to Mary Baker Eddy, p.71)

May 31, 1903. Now drop arguing and hold to God. I used to do my healing with – ‘God is All.’
I never argued until I began teaching students and I had to meet the thought where it stood. Now hold the allness of God, then there is nothing else; if error says arsenic, can’t sleep, can’t eat – can; there is only one God.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.5)

Mrs. Eddy once declared that some of her students were as soft as mush!  She also said, “When you rebuke sin, you cannot be nice to the sinner . . . The moment you are pleasant with or in error, that moment you can do nothing with it.  There must be authority.”   Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert, 500 Watching Points, #478)
