Possible Sunday School Topics by Merrill Boudreaux, CS, for the

Christian Science Bible Lesson: Mortals and Immortals

for May 12-18, 2014


P.S.S.T.  Golden Text – Today is a new day.  This moment is a new moment.  One need not hold on to yesterday’s griefs, false beliefs, untoward actions.  Ask students to identify characteristics or actions they desire to abandon in their lives.  Then how can their understanding of the Christ, or God with us, aid in taking on the new man, a new self, identified with what God knows about them.

P.S.S.T.  Responsive Reading – Ask students to make a short list of that which is beautiful about themselves.  These should be qualities they express, not physical aspects of beauty.

P.S.S.T.  Section 1 – Ask students to identify a few heroes in their lives.  What makes these individuals heroes to them?  Are there two types of men, material and spiritual, mortal and immortal, real and counterfeit?  Are there two parallel universes, material and spiritual?  If so, they can only exist in the individual’s belief or concept.  Never in fact is there more than one universe — that of Spirit.  In order to see and participate in the spiritual only what must we do? S3, S4.

P.S.S.T.  Section 2 – Read the story of Hezekiah in the Bible portion of this section.  What was Hezekiah’s prayer that robbed the grave of victory?  See also citation S8 for an answer.  Which man are you:  Error-laden or harmonious, governed by God or discordant, fatigued or energized, sick or well, sinful or joyful as God’s creation?

P.S.S.T.  Section 3 – Ask students to write a few sentences as to what was the doctrine of Jesus Christ.  That is, what did Jesus absolutely believe?

   Answer the following:

  • Does God send sickness?
  • Does God send death?
  • Does God make mistakes?
  • Who controls the universe?
  • Who controls you?
  • Is anyone left out of God’s kingdom, God’s love?

What can you then conclude about you and your fellow beings on this planet?

P.S.S.T.  Section 4 – What does it mean to build a house on a rock?  House is often another word for consciousness, or thinking.  On what is your thinking built, physical sense testimony or the awareness of God forever with us?  What qualities do you desire to use as the rock of your thinking about yourself and others, your world?  See citations S21 and S22.

P.S.S.T.  Section 5 – Read aloud citations B17, B18, B19, B20, and B21.  It is clear that choices are to be made.  Read aloud Hymn 258 from the Christian Science Hymnal.  Ask students what are the key takeaways in this Hymn as related to this week’s Lesson.  Choose ye, where is your thinking, what do you desire to experience in your life?  Finally, are you mortal or immortal?
