2nd BONUS: Use “the scientific statement of being” as ONE OF GOD’S BEST, all-inclusive GIFTS TO YOU, and to us all,  (see SH, p.  468)

  • The Christmas season tradition of gift giving was started by our Father/Mother God sharing the greatest gift EVER of giving us His/Her Son as our Wayshower to save us and the world. Next week’s , Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson on “Christ Jesus” shows us all about the long-foretold prophecies of his coming, of examples of his infinite Love lived, and of the far-reaching, problem-solving impact of the mind(set) of Christ. To fully show our gratitude for the Christ-gift we’ve been given we need to strive to be “bringing every thought (not just every other thought) to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Cor. 10:5) So, here’s a thought-by-thought, moment-by-unselfish-moment, prayer for each of us to “pay forward” the transformative Spirit and blessing power of Christ’s love thought and lived.
  • The gift-themed verses below from the end of the Responsive Reading in the (12-17-23) Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson on “Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?”  are a perfect bridge to next week’s Lesson on “Christ Jesus.”
    The following verses spring from a spiritual (versus material) origin of the universe, including man in which “the spirit of God moved … and God said, Let there be light and there was light.” (Genesis 1:2, 3)
  • “We have not received this world’s spirit;
    instead, we have received the Spirit sent by God, so that we may know all that God has given us.

    13 So then, we do not speak in words taught by human wisdom,
    but in words taught by the Spirit, as we explain spiritual truths to those who have the Spirit.” I Corinthians 2:12, 13 from the Good News Translation in Today’s English Version– Second Edition) 
  • MARY BAKER EDDY chose to CLOSE EVERY SUNDAY SERVICE with what Einstein called “THE MOST PROFOUND STATEMENT EVER UTTERED BY MANKIND.”
  • This Remarkable Scientific “Closing Statement” for Mental Self-Defence Attorney to use is of course the “Scientific Statement of Being” that Mary Baker Eddy was inspired to write and to specified to be read aloud as the closing for every Sunday Church service! (Church Manual, p. It ENDS with the Genesis 1 Spiritual BEGINNING of the Universe, including Man, in MIND!
  • “Question. What is the scientific statement of being?
    Answer. There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual.” Church Manual, 468
  • Our gift of the scientific statement of being is perfect in these days of seeming spikes in anxiety attacks and mental health issues. Tht’s because it includes how we can be our own Mental Defense Attorney/Comforter, and wrap-up our mental defense with a Biblically-logical, Scientific “Closing Statement”!
  • As a (Mental) DEFENSE ATTORNEY, end your defense with this gift of a Bible-based, logically-Scientific “Closing Statement”! It Mentally says NO (repeatedly) to the enigmatic illusion of a “universe, like man… (being) evolved by atomic force” (the dust beginning of Genesis 2) — and say YES repeatedly to man made in “His image and likeness”! That Genesis 1 beginning A related, MYTH-BREAKING, “Closing Statement” for ADVANCED THINKERS — the SCIENTIFIC STATEMENT OF BEING! Think of it as an attorney’s “Closing Statement” — A CLOSING, ,  THAT “BEGINS WITH THE END OF MIND.” OUR SPIRITUAL BEGINNING AS STATED GENESIS 1 AS AND LOGICALLY PROCEEDS IN MIND FROM THE BEGINNING.
  • It came to me that since “Jesus of Nazareth was the most scientific man that ever trod the globe” (cit. S13/313:23), he naturally be thinking in terms of the “Scientific statement of being” (SH 468:8+)  lIKE HIM, WE TOO CAN PRAY WITH ITS ALTERNATING AFFIRM-AND-DENY PATTERN TO ACHIEVE OUR GOALS TODAY!
  • This affirmation/denial pattern follows the method used by rowers in a row boat who reach their desired destination only by pulling equally on both oars.  (When they pull only on one oar instead of on both oars, the boat goes in circles!)
    Let’s be alert to follow her system of both affirming the facts and denying the fables.  Such balanced prayer will enable us to “first bind the strong man” (Mark 3:27) and so reach the desired goal of demonstrating “a higher and more permanent peace”—in ALL conditions.
    As we perceive these scientific facts we can PROVE them like Daniel, Jesus and Paul did in this week’s Bible Lesson.


  •  Kathy Fitzer Met on Matter for March 21, 2021: “I found a couple of articles that were helpful to me in gaining a clearer sense of the correlative relationship of 1st John with “the Scientific Statement of Being.”  One was an article written by a student of Mary Baker Eddy’s, Hermann S. Hering.  He asked her for approval before it was published, which, of course, was granted. https://sentinel.christianscience.com/issues/1906/1/8-19/i-john-3-1-2-3

A more recent article, https://journal.christianscience.com/shared/view/2plvbb3rm70?s=copylink,  included this statement: “By indicating the correlative nature of the I John verses in respect to “the scientific statement of being,” Mrs. Eddy shows us that the Bible verses themselves indicate both the unreality of matter and the present spiritual sonship of all, however much the deceptive corporeal senses would try to obscure this sonship. It is instructive to read the whole of I John with these points in thought.”

There is also a helpful Sentinel Watch podcast that addresses the question, How Can I Better Understand the Scientific Statement of Being? with Janet Clements.  Here’s a link: https://sentinel.christianscience.com/sentinel-audio/sentinel-watch/q-a-how-can-i-better-understand-the-scientific-statement-of-being?s=copylink
