Consistency of God's good

For the Lesson titled "Doctrine of Atonement" from October 14 - 20, 2013

This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson, titled “Doctrine of Atonement,” isn’t complicated. According to Harper’s Bible Dictionary, atonement is a core Christian doctrine (or teaching) “concerning the means and condition of the reconciliation by which man returns into complete communion with God.” I like to think of reconciliation as simply a demonstration of consistency. 

This week’s Lesson explores how thought is transformed when we awaken to the consistency of God’s good. In other words, God, good, hasn’t gone anywhere.

God established a covenant with His people—with all mankind. He gave us laws to live by “for our good always, that he might preserve us alive” (Deuteronomy 6:24, citation 2). Both Moses and Jesus taught this law, known as the Commandments, in an effort to keep the thought of their listeners aligned with God. Jesus even said that the key to eternal life is to “keep the commandments” (Matthew 19:17, cit. 13).
