Study the Platform XXXIIC 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“.

Marsha:  What a great ride we had in Zion today.
The following completes the last part of the 32nd platform and includes what our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, considers the…

XXXII. (Basis of health and immortality) (Third part)

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus xx. 3.) The First Commandment is my favorite text. It demonstrates Christian Science. It inculcates the triunity of God, Spirit, Mind; it signifies that man shall have no other spirit or mind but God, eternal good, and that all men shall have one Mind. The divine Principle of the First Commandment bases the Science of being, by which man demonstrates health, holiness, and life eternal. One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the Scripture, “Love thy neighbor as thyself;” annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry, — whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed.  S&H 340: 15

 Marsha: This is the third and final part – The fulfillment (One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations…fulfills the promise of peace and healing.)

Mrs. Eddy writes, “The prosperity of Zion is very precious in the sight of divine Love, holding unwearied watch over a world. Isaiah said: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, . . . that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” Surely, the Word that is God must at some time find utterance and acceptance throughout the earth, for he that soweth shall reap.  To such as have waited patiently for the appearing of Truth, the day dawns and the harvest bells are ringing.”  My 184: 24 

And words from a hymn… 

To Thee, O God, we bring our adoration,
To Love divine, in whom we live and move;
For Thou hast shown to us our perfect selfhood
In Thy loved Son, whom Jesus came to prove.

We are Thy children, Thou our Father-Mother,
And we would ever follow Thy behest:
Help us to understand Thy holy counsel,
For in obedience lies our active rest.

We, now redeemed through Love, return to Zion,
Singing to Thee our deeply grateful praise;
For we are Christ’s, and Christ is Thine, O Father:
His joy remains in us through endless days.
Christian Science Hymnal 356, NBM
