Rebuilding the Walls

WHEN a Church of Christ, Scientist, is taking steps to build a suitable structure in which to worship God, the members naturally turn for inspiration and guidance to the Scriptures and to the writings of their beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. The story of the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem, as recorded in the Bible in the book of Nehemiah, is an illuminating exposure of the arguments that arise to prevent the work from going forward; and it also shows the necessity for being ever on guard against these erroneous arguments.

It is interesting to note that when Nehemiah arrived at Jerusalem, he made a quiet investigation by night to determine the extent of the work to be done. Then Nehemiah took the Jews into his confidence, told them of God's direction that the walls be rebuilt, and enlisted their support, so that with united purpose and steadfast resolve they all said, "Let us rise up and build."
