Find punishment (expunged by "flood-tides of Love") to be never-lasting! [#2, #3, #5, #6]
Insights from Cobbey Crisler and Ken Cooper on select citations for
““Everlasting Punishment””— The Christian Science Bible Lesson for November 4, 2018

Warren’s (W’s) PS#1—Cobbey Crisler on Psalm 103: 2-6 (B3):
“We're all covered by insurance policies, perhaps life and health insurance. The Canadian spelling is probably better, "assurance" as far as biblical therapy is concerned. If you've ever wanted to know what benefits we have, Psalm 103 lists them: Verse 2, "Forget not all his benefits." We have "Forgive us iniquities," that's sin removed from man. "Disease," all of them, Verse 3. Removed from man's experience and nature.” Verse 4, “Redeemeth thy life from destruction,” death no longer the arbiter of man’s potential and capability. Those are the benefits. They’re not only individual; they’re collective because verse 6 says, “The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.”

W’s PS#2—Cobbey Crisler on Jeremiah 31:3 (B5): God’s lovingkindness solves all problems
In Chapter 31, which is Jeremiah’s greatest chapter, he predicts the new covenant will come. He defines it. In Verse 3 he shows that the new covenant is definitely based on the comprehension of God as love. It’s that very “lovingkindness” that will draw all mankind to God for the solution of the world problems.”

W’s PS#3—Additional insights on the psalmist’s prayer that “according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.” (Psalm 51:1, B8)

“The human history needs to be revised, and the material record expunged.”

W’s PS#4— Cobbey Crisler on Matthew 9:12 (B15)
(Verse 12) “They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.” They that are sick are reaching out for help.

“Book of Matthew, Auditing the Master: A Tax Collector’s Report,” by B. Cobbey Crisler**

W’s PS#5— Cobbey Crisler Luke 4:14, 38-39 (B20)

“Luke indicates that he understands this [Jesus’ period of temptations in the wilderness] has been a power test for Jesus because in Verse 14 he uses that word, "Jesus returned" not in any form of power that Satan had tried to impose upon him [“to To take personal power, political power, and priestly power”]. But rather, "in the power of the Spirit into Galilee"—[“in the law that relates man directly to God, the source of the only power there is. (CC)]

“The next healing is Simon's mother-in-law (in Verse 38). We see Luke's very tender approach to womanhood. In fact, of all the gospels, Luke makes an even greater emphasis on the subject of womanhood's role and place. You see Jesus' great care for Simon's mother-in-law, and her need for healing. Mark (1:35-38) tells us that there was a delay after they came into the house.

They came into the house and Mark (1 :30) says, ''Anon they tell him of her.”, Anon. After all women were not all that important. Jesus probably had much more significant things to do and to tell the male disciples, and we could get around to the mother-in-law later, even if she was suffering from fever.

The minute Jesus heard that, he went directly to that woman's bedside and he eliminated that sense of fever. He did it without medication, without manipulation, without surgery. Does it relate back to what Jesus himself indicated was his remedy in his opening words, "Repent," changing one's concept? Does it transform our body? Immediately she arose" (Verse 39), no recuperation necessary.”

“Luke the Researcher,” by B. Cobbey Crisler**

W’s PS#6— Ken Cooper’s poem for this week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson on “Everlasting Punishment” is based on the healing of Peter's wife's mother. (Luke 4: 38-39, B20) You can click on Downloads in the upper right of CedarS online version of these PS additions by Warren, or the online version of the actual Met(aphysical) Application Ideas for this week’s Bible Lesson by Kerry Jenkins, CS.

Ken relates the love that brought about this healing of Peter’s “mother-in-love” to the wonderful healing work being done by Love through Mary Baker Eddy. He writes, “There is a detailed testimony recorded in the book "Twelve Years with Mary Baker Eddy" Irving Tomlinson [pages 60-62] of a mother whose daughter was instantly healed of a painful growth on her head, when she and her two children met with her. The mother wrote "I wish I could make the world know what I saw when Mrs. Eddy looked at those children. It was a revelation to me. I saw for the first time the real Mother-Love….This Love was everywhere, like the light, but it was divine, not mere human affection." And it healed the child.

There are so many instances of the healing power of love, across history and across all faiths. Why? Because God is Love. And that is what is everlasting.
