Study the Platform XIII of XXXII

Hi, this is Marsha from
Come study the platform with me from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy in the chapter called Science of Being, page 330. We’ll take one part of the platform each day for the next 32 days. We’ll read the words Mrs. Eddy has given us. Then, I’ll share with you some ideas that have come to me and then you get to share your ideas in the blog online in the comment area below.
If you know anyone who might like to participate in this exercise, please forward this to them to have them subscribe to my website.
If you miss some, you can catch up by going to the menu at the top
called “Study the Platform“.

XIII. (The divine Principle and idea) The advent of Jesus of Nazareth marked the first century of the Christian era, but the Christ is without beginning of years or end of days. Throughout all generations both before and after the Christian era, the Christ, as the spiritual idea, — the reflection of God, — has come with some measure of power and grace to all prepared to receive Christ, Truth. Abraham, Jacob, Moses, and the prophets caught glorious glimpses of the Messiah, or Christ, which baptized these seers in the divine nature, the essence of Love. The divine image, idea, or Christ was, is, and ever will be inseparable from the divine Principle, God. Jesus referred to this unity of his spiritual identity thus: “Before Abraham was, I am;” “I and my Father are one;” “My Father is greater than I.” The one Spirit includes all identities.  S&H 333: 16

 Marsha:  The Christ has always been, is now, and forever will be inseparable from the divine Principle, God, for Christ is the spiritual idea, the reflection of God, which comes to those prepared to receive Christ, Truth. Christ, eternal Truth destroys what mortals seem to have learned from error, and man’s real existence as a child of God comes to light. S&H 288: 31-1 The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking, unloosing bonds of all captivity.   Christian Science Hymnal 412


  1. “I and my father are one”: my Father is greater then I
    Knowing that is what takes the fear out of something scary and also “my Father is greater then I “and that my Father is also greater then anything ,anyone any place or situation because he created it all

    I can pray ,wait and listen for my Fathers answer when I’m in a blind spot and know the right answer will be revealed

  2. I love that we are “baptized in the essence of Love.” That means to me fully submerged, surrounded, and washed clean by the truth of Love as all…and all are included…none left out.
