WORDS OF CURRENT INTEREST

[The words in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly designated to be read in Christian Science churches on April 25, 1965.]

The issues of life (Prov. 1:23) The Hebrew word here translated "issues"' means more strictly "outgoings," and so "sources." Kent suggests, "the sources of life"; while Smith has, "the well-springs of life."

To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (Rom. 8:6) The word phronema, found twice in this verse, means properly "the thoughts of the mind" rather than the mind itself. The Riverside New Testament suggests, "Fleshly mindedness is death, but spiritual mindedness is life and peace"; while Moffatt has. "The interests of the flesh mean death, the interests of the Spirit mean life and peace."
