Sunday School Notes and Comments
Advantages of Attending a Christian Science Sunday School
On page 4 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy says, "All Science is Christian Science; the Science of the Mind that is God, and of the universe as His idea, and their relation to each other." This Science is demonstrable. In so far as one understands the truths of Christian Science, he can demonstrate them; and he cannot demonstrate what he does not understand. The essence of Sunday school teaching should be so to teach the truths of Christian Science that the pupil is helped to understand them, and to demonstrate what he learns.
On page 54 of "Retrospection and Introspection," Mrs. Eddy writes: "Millions are believing in God, or good, without bearing the fruits of goodness, not having reached its Science. Belief is virtually blindness, when it admits Truth without understanding it. Blind belief cannot say with the apostle, 'I know whom I have believed.' There is danger in this mental state called belief; for if Truth is admitted, but not understood, it may be lost, and error may enter through this same channel of ignorant belief."
On pages 61 and 62 of the same book she also says: "Posterity will have the right to demand that Christian Science be stated and demonstrated in its godliness and grandeur,—that however little be taught or learned, that little shall be right. Let there be milk for babes, but let not the milk be adulterated. Unless this method be pursued, the Science of Christian healing will again be lost, and human suffering will increase."
