They Love The Commandments Too
In a recent article in this column there was an account of a class of pre-teen age pupils who love the Beatitudes. They love the Commandments too. And in learning the Commandments (Ex. 20:3–17) they are learning to study the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, for from these books the teacher selects passages for them to read that help them to understand and apply the Commandments. From the fourteenth chapter of Exodus they have learned of Moses, who, under God's direction and guidance, led the children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage and across the Red Sea on their way to the promised land. In the nineteenth chapter of Exodus they have read of that momentous event when God revealed the Commandments to Moses at Mount Sinai.
In their study of the First Commandment they review the seven synonyms given in the definition of God on page 587 of our textbook. In discussing these synonyms they learn the importance of having "no other gods." They learn that anything that does not correspond with the definition of God which Mrs. Eddy has given us, that anything apart from the one true God which claims to be able to help us or to harm us or to make us afraid, is a false god, and that to worship a false god is idolatry.
