Our Church Edifices

When God said to Solomon, "I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually," He pronounced a blessing which all churches, built to honor His name, hope to inherit. Such favor, however, was only to follow as certain conditions which accompanied the benediction were fulfilled. God's perpetual presence in the house could only be known as the house was filled with upright hearts of perfect integrity, and as God's statutes and judgments were faithfully kept.

Christian Scientists, in the revelation of the Science of Life, have definite rules whereby the houses they build for God's worship may be erected as the result of spirituality understood and demonstrated. The right thinking and living which obedience to the teachings of Christian Science inculcates cannot fail to bring forth fruits in such present manifestation as shall prove to all who have eyes to see that God does indeed dwell among His people. While Christian Scientists believe this is true, they are being constantly called upon to demonstrate it in ever increasing measure.
