Sept. 16-22: “Matter.”
Golden Text: “…we know that ‘an idol has no real existence,’ and that ‘there is no God but one.'” (I Corinthians 8:4)
This powerful Bible Lesson helps us break free from the tyranny of “false gods,” idols, that in truth have no power over our health, our happiness or our lives. It gives us instead a clear, inspired vision of Truth, God, Divine Spirit, always present to help, guide and heal.
“To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?… Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?” (Isaiah 40: 18, 21)
“I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” (Isaiah 42: 8)
“Spirit, God, has created all in and of Himself. Spirit never created matter. There is nothing in Spirit out of which matter could be made, for, as the Bible declares, without the Logos, the Aeon or Word of God, ‘was not anything made that was made.'” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 335: 7-12.)
You and your family are also welcome to join us at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, where you can hear this powerful lesson read, along with hymns and a sacred solo. Your children are always welcome in our Sunday School, where they will love discussing the Bible stories contained in the Lesson and related passages from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health. Your smaller children will receive loving care in our Children’s Room.
Come join us on Sunday, or at our 7:30 p.m. Wednesday testimony meeting. You are most welcome.
