Walking calmly over the waves of error

Wednesday readings, 2nd Church, Berkeley
S&H Jer. 17:14
14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.
S&H Luke 4:14-16, 24, 28-30
14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. 16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. 28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. 30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way,
KJV II Sam. 22:2 1st The, 3 1st in
2 …The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; 3 …in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.
S&H Ps. 72:12, 14 (to 1st :)
12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper. 14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence:
S&H II Kings 6:16 1st Fear
16 …Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
S&H Jonah 1:17 1st the
17 …the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
S&H Jonah 2:1, 2, 3 (to 1st ;), 4 1st yet, 5 (to 1st :), 6 1st yet, 7, 9 1st I, 10
1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly, 2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice. 3 For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; 4 …yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. 5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: 6 …yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. 7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple. 9 …I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD. 10 And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
S&H Jonah 3:1-3 (to 1st .)
1 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, 2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. 3 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD.
S&H Ps. 93:4
4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
S&H Ps. 107:29
29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
S&H Matt. 8:18, 23-26
18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side. 23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. 24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. 26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
S&H Luke 6:47, 48
47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
S&H 134:26-28
Jesus said: “I knew that Thou hearest me al-
ways;” and he raised Lazarus from the dead, stilled the
tempest, healed the sick, walked on the water.
S&H 97:7-13
cording to human belief, the lightning is fierce
and the electric current swift, yet in Christian Science
the flight of one and the blow of the other will become
harmless. The more destructive matter becomes, the
more its nothingness will appear, until matter reaches
its mortal zenith in illusion and forever disappears.
S&H 505:16-20
Spirit imparts the understanding which uplifts con-
sciousness and leads into all truth. The Psalmist saith:
“The Lord on high is mightier than the noise
of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of
the sea.
S&H 273:24-3
Jesus walked on the
waves, fed the multitude, healed the sick, and raised the
dead in direct opposition to material laws. His acts were
the demonstration of Science, overcoming the false claims
of material sense or law.
Science shows that material, conflicting mortal opin-
ions and beliefs emit the effects of error at all times, but
this atmosphere of mortal mind cannot be destructive to
morals and health when it is opposed promptly and per-
sistently by Christian Science. Truth and Love antidote
this mental miasma, and thus invigorate and sustain ex-
S&H 391:7-13
Instead of blind and calm submission to the incipient
or advanced stages of disease, rise in rebellion against
them. Banish the belief that you can possi-
bly entertain a single intruding pain which can-
not be ruled out by the might of Mind, and in this way
you can prevent the development of pain in the body.
No law of God hinders this result.
S&H 393:32-4
It is well to be calm in sickness;
to be hopeful is still better; but to understand that sick-
ness is not real and that Truth can destroy its seeming
reality, is best of all, for this understanding is the uni-
versal and perfect remedy.
S&H 366:24-29
sick are terrified by their sick beliefs, and
sinners should be affrighted by their sinful beliefs; but
the Christian Scientist will be calm in the presence of
both sin and disease, knowing, as he does, that Life is
God and God is All.
S&H 494:15 Jesus
demonstrated the inability of corporeality, as well as the
infinite ability of Spirit, thus helping erring
human sense to flee from its own convictions
and seek safety in divine Science. Reason, rightly di-
rected, serves to correct the errors of corporeal sense; but
sin, sickness, and death will seem real (even as the ex-
periences of the sleeping dream seem real) until the Sci-
ence of man’s eternal harmony breaks their illusion with
the unbroken reality of scientific being.
S&H 421:15-18 (to 1st .)
chemicalization produces pain or disease. Insist vehe-
mently on the great fact which covers the whole ground,
that God, Spirit, is all, and that there is none beside
S&H 455:8-10
You must utilize the moral
might of Mind in order to walk over the waves of error
and support your claims by demonstration.
S&H 358:9-11, 15
Christian Science, understood, coincides with the
Scriptures, and sustains logically and demonstratively
every point it presents.
It presents the calm and clear verdict of Truth
against error, uttered and illustrated by the prophets,
by Jesus, by his apostles, as is recorded throughout the
S&H 201:7 (only)
We cannot build safely on false foundations.
S&H 269:21
The testimony of the material senses is neither abso-
lute nor divine. I therefore plant myself unreservedly
on the teachings of Jesus, of his apostles, of
the prophets, and on the testimony of the
Science of Mind. Other foundations there are none.
All other systems – systems based wholly or partly on
knowledge gained through the material senses – are reeds
shaken by the wind, not houses built on the rock.
S&H 96:21-23, 25-27, 31
Mortal error will vanish in a moral chemicalization.
This mental fermentation has begun, and will continue
until all errors of belief yield to understanding.
As this consummation draws nearer, he who has
shaped his course in accordance with divine Science
will endure to the end.
During this final conflict, wicked minds will endeavor
to find means by which to accomplish more evil; but
those who discern Christian Science will hold crime in
check. They will aid in the ejection of error. They
will maintain law and order, and cheerfully await the
certainty of ultimate perfection.
