Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly®

Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?

I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it.

Here God’s activity is depicted as permanent, complete, and secure. This verse echoes another scriptural statement: “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it” (Deuteronomy 4:2).

The Bible Lessons serve as weekly study guides as well as the sermon in every Christian Science Sunday church service. Learn more at BibleLesson.com
