A Letter to the Jehovah’s Witness Lady
A Jehovah Witness has been visiting me off and on for over two years now and she finally asked me what religion I was of. I purposely did not want her to know, but since she finally asked I told her I was an Independent Christian Scientist. After the latest visit from my Jehovah Witness friend I wrote the following letter as I really did not have time to tell her much about Christian Science.
When you last visited me I felt as if I could not explain what Christian Science really is, so I am writing this letter in order to help explain it to you.
When you were here we spoke of where the new kingdom of heaven would be located. The highest realm for the kingdom of God or the kingdom of heaven must be found where Jesus revealed it to be. Jesus told us that the kingdom of God/heaven is found within us. Did he mean that it is within a limited material body? No, he meant that it would be found within our consciousness (in our subjective thought). However, this does not mean that it cannot be manifested in the world as a locality or place (in our objective thought). So, this place must be the place that God chose, that God decided upon, and that place would have to be the place where the ten lost tribes of Israel would be reunited with the three tribes that consist of today’s Jews – the three tribes of Judah, Levi, and Benjamin. This place would have to be found in the New World, or the Western Hemisphere – the country known as the United States of America. This is symbolized in the fact that the Star of David is found on the back of the American dollar bill. This Star of David consists of thirteen stars for the thirteen colonies (later known as States). These thirteen were the new symbols for the thirteen tribes of Israel written about in the Bible (as explained in the book of Numbers).
I find it interesting that there are three major religions that were born in the United States of America. Biblical Christians refer to these three religions as cults. And they use the word cult to describe these three religions in the wrong way – being led by a deranged leader! These three religions are the Mormons, the Jehovah Witnesses, and Christian Scientists.
Christian Science is the highest of these three Western religions because it is based upon God’s Science; it is not based upon the religious consciousness of biblical Christianity.
I do not take the word cult as an insult (as it probably is meant to be taken) because I understand its true meaning. Cult means: “wheel.” It also has to do with cultivation and civilization. So the word really is not bad at all. In fact, Ezekiel’s wheel is the cult to which I am speaking of, and Christian Science is based upon Ezekiel’s wheel (written about in the beginning of the book Ezekiel).
Cult is also described as “a system [which would have to be God’s Science] for the cure of disease based on dogma [a definite authoritative tenet; a code of such tenets] set forth by its promulgator [the one that proclaims, declares; one who cries out (in the wilderness)]”. Of all religions in the world the only one that fits this true definition of “cult” is Christian Science, for it is the only religion to teach God’s system of Science. (This does not mean that other religions of the world could not teach the system of Science, but the fact is that they do not, at least not the way that Christian Science does.)
Cult being explained in this way makes it of vital importance to know what the tenets of Christian Science are. The following are the six tenets of Christian Science found in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy and the Church Manual, by Mary Baker Eddy.
- As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life.
- We acknowledge and adore one supreme and infinite God. We acknowledge His Son, one Christ; the Holy Ghost or divine Comforter; and man in God’s image and likeness.
- We acknowledge God’s forgiveness of sin in the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding that casts out evil as unreal. But the belief in sin is punished so long as the belief lasts.
- We acknowledge Jesus’ atonement as the evidence of divine, efficacious Love, unfolding man’s unity with God through Christ Jesus the Wayshower; and we acknowledge that man is saved through Christ, through Truth, Life, and Love as demonstrated by the Galilean Prophet in healing the sick and overcoming sin and death.
- We acknowledge that the crucifixion of Jesus and is resurrection served to uplift faith to understand eternal Life, even the allness of Soul, Spirit, and the nothingness of matter.
- And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them to unto me; and to be merciful, just, and pure.
Mary Baker Eddy.
So let us take a closer look at these six Tenets.
Number one tells us that Christian Scientists are followers of God. God is Truth (reality, or what is really real, this means that as inversion something seems to exist that is unreal – this would have to be sin, sickness, disease, and death – or material life which is not eternal). As followers of Truth (Christian Science) we Christian Scientists take the inspired Word of God’s Bible as our sufficient guide (training or instruction) to eternal Life. Notice Mary Baker Eddy states that it is the “inspired Word” she does not say it is the “written Word.” This means that the Bible must be translated scientifically back to God’s true meaning, or God’s true Word. However, there is more “inspired Word” that Christian Scientists use as our guide.
Why do Christian Scientists happen to have a book called Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures? Why would we even need it at all? This book is needed in order to help us scientifically translate the Bible’s “inspired Word” back to God. It is also needed because the little open book (of Revelation 10) holds the Scientific KEY to the Bible. In other words, the Christian Science Textbook unlocks the Bible’s true Scientific structure and meaning. Because Science and Health is the little open book mentioned in Revelation 10 then this little open book is a continuation, a further training and instruction. This book leads us in the same path that the Bible does. Christian Science is the true path that leads us into eternal Life. God is the only Life there is, and man as God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1) reflects this eternal Life.
There is a book by Christian Scientist Max Kappeler called The Spiritual Breakthrough to the Next Millennium. In his book he explains the process of spiritual progression through the seven ages. These seven ages are composed of seven thousand-year periods. These help explain what the seven days written about in Genesis 1-2:3 are really all about, for as Scripture tells us, “one day is like a thousand years unto the Lord.”
Kappeler’s teacher was John W. Doorly. Doorly visualized the seven days corresponding with the seven synonymous terms for God (within the Textbook) and he taught how these seven days provided the seven tones for the Word order. They are the seven names given to God in Science and Health. These seven synonymous tones are: Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love. When we accept these seven as the make-up of what God really is then we begin to understand God, man, and the universe. Genesis’ first day is in the tone of Mind; the second day presents the tone of Spirit, the third day Soul, the fourth day Principle, the fifth day Life, the sixth day Truth, and the seventh day Love. Sadly, many of today’s Christian Scientists are unaware of this. (This same order for the synonyms is also the Science order except they are placed upon the Golden Candlestick as the seven flames of light. The Christ order for the seven is – Principle, Life, Truth, Love, Soul, Spirit, Mind and the Christianity order for the seven is – Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth, Love. These four orders for the seven synonymous terms is what helps us understand the divine calculus [Ezekiel’s Wheel] for the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science.)
The second Tenet has to do with the Holy Trinity. It tells us that Christian Scientists acknowledge and adore one supreme and infinite God (Life/Father). We acknowledge His Son, one Christ (Truth/Son). Christian Scientists have never said that there are two or three Christs, but there is more than one Christ advent. There is only one Christ and that Christ must be Truth. Jesus was the human that manifested the Christ (divine nature of God) in the Fifth Day of Life. He then was the human and divine coincidence. And his purpose in this world was to help human consciousness advance toward reflecting the one Christ. The masculine Jesus God-crown mission was to help us understand, as a cult-civilization, that we are one with our Father-God because we reflect the Christ Mind of Truth, or of Son (Truth) Hood (Mind). Jesus was not God; he never claimed to be God. Jesus did say, “I and my Father are one” but he did not mean that they were one persona. He meant that He was one (at-one-mental consciousness) with divine Principle (God) because he was God’s divine idea. In the Sixth Day of Truth it would become stated (in the absolute) that: “Principle and its idea is one.” The word “is” denotes singularity instead of plurality.
Christian Scientists acknowledge the Holy Ghost (divine Love) or divine Comforter (divine Science). Divine Love must express God’s Motherhood. The feminine Mary Baker Eddy God-crown mission was to help us understand, as a cult-civilization, that we are one with our Mother-God because we reflect the Christ Mind of Love, or we reflect Mother (Love) Hood (Mind). Mary Baker Eddy is not God; she never claimed to be God, however, she did hint (she had to hide it from mortal minded persona) that she was the second coming of Christ. She could not come out and state that she was the divine Comforter that Jesus had promised the world. She had to hint at it until society had spiritually progressed to accept and understand this very point. This point would not begin until the 1940s. Because she could not state that she was the divine Comforter she told her followers that divine Science was this Comforter. This was the absolute Truth; however, Science, divine Science, absolute Christian Science, and Christian Science (the four levels of Science) had to be brought down from heaven via the angel of Revelation 10. Mary Baker Eddy is this angel from Revelation 10 and the little open book is Science and Health Key to the Scriptures. Mary Baker Eddy, as God’s Scribe, wrote, “Principle [God] and its idea [generic man] is one.”
How can all of this be so? Mary Baker Eddy finishes up the second Tenet with the fact that Christian Scientists acknowledge man in God’s image and likeness. We accept the creation of man (as idea) in the first chapter of Genesis as reality. We accept that man is created in God’s image and likeness. We do not believe that God is created in man’s image and likeness, for this is the type of man spoken of in the second creation story of Genesis about a man called Adam who created his own limited idea of what God is – that of the Lord God Jehovah. Christian Scientists understand that Adam was an erroneous mistake from his beginning. Adam believes in an anthropomorphic god. There is no way that Adam is the image and likeness of God (Elohim) when he was created out of material elements instead of being created as spiritual idea. Jehovah is a tribal god, he is not the same God mentioned in the first creation account (Genesis 1-2:3 – Elohim is this God). Jehovah creates an erroneous type of man, a muddied man with unclear thinking. Or, is it the fact that a man creates his Lord God Jehovah in his materialized limited thought seeing this god as being made in man’s image and likeness? Adam is the type of man (mind) that will have to go through seven thousand-year periods or ages. However, because man does have spiritual breakthroughs during each and every millennium then the idea behind Jehovah, or what Jehovah stands for as God, is raised up along with Adam man (mortal man to the human). I see it this way, the fall of man into the pit of mortal mind brought about man’s fallen concept about the one true God. And it is this misconception about God that had kept man from knowing the truth about his own being (as a spiritual being). This is when I believe the first religion or church (as a material organization) began.
So, in order to regain the true concept of what God is man has had to journey through these seven thousand year periods. And it is through Womanhood that man’s spiritual progression has had to take place (see Genesis 3:15, 16). To finite mortal mind these two verses seem to be a curse, however, as the inspired Word of God these two verses actually tell us of Womanhood’s God-crown mission. It is after Adam hears this Bible prophecy that he falsely identifies his own Womanhood and names her Eve (Genesis 3:20). Why does Adam do this? Because at this point he is one with the serpent (they are given the same curse), remember it is the serpent that will impede the woman’s spiritual footsteps (Genesis 3:15). (This is what the war on Womanhood is really about.)
Tenet number three has the Christian Scientist acknowledging God’s forgiveness of sin in the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding that casts out evil as unreal. In other words, we cannot be forgiven of the sin that Adam man (our material persona) has committed until that sin is destroyed. We cannot go into a confessional and be forgiven our sins by a medium-priest because his limited forgiveness does not destroy the sins that the person is confessing to! Further more, this priest cannot forgive sin, only God can forgive sin. So how is sin destroyed? It is destroyed with spiritual understanding, for spiritual understanding casts out evil as being unreal. Adam man (error) that has fallen into sin is what becomes destroyed by spiritual understanding given to us by the first and second comings of Christ as Jesus Christ and Mary Baker Eddy. Adam is original sin. What is original sin? Perhaps Christian Scientists think that original sin is the belief that man is created by matter elements, by a mortal minded god called the Lord God Jehovah, that he fell into a deep sleep and never woke up, that his own Womanhood (divinity) was taken out of him via surgery (electricity of animal magnetism belief), that man has eaten the forbidden fruit of physical knowledge (a belief that good [Spirit] and evil [matter] are mixed together in a material corporeal body called Eden [the false sense of what paradise really is] and that evil dominates or has victory over good), and finally that man has been cursed into the realm of nothingness (dust, ground)? Perhaps Christians think that sex is original sin? Original sin is denying Womanhood as the Leader of man. The world’s problems today are all rooted to the fact that Mary Baker Eddy is not being followed or accepted as being the world’s Leader.
Spiritual understanding (the Third Degree of reality) casts out of conscious thought that evil beliefs are real (true). This is a major point of Christian Science. Mary Baker Eddy warns us, “But the belief in sin [Adam man, or fallen man] is punished so long as the belief lasts.” So I ask all biblical Christians, “Why do you want to continue in the belief that you are a fallen man? Why do the priests and fathers and popes continue this lie that man is fallen into sin? “Help me, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” But the Truth is that you can get up! Your salvation is the “inspired Word of the Bible” and Science and Health! You only have to accept the Truth it is that simple.
Tenet four says that Christian Scientists “acknowledge Jesus’ atonement [at one mental consciousness with God] as the evidence of divine, efficacious Love, unfolding man’s unity with God through Christ Jesus the Wayshower.” Jesus showed us the way, the way to our own atonement with God. Christian Scientists also “acknowledge that man is saved through Christ, through Truth, Life, and Love [the real Holy Trinity] as demonstrated by the Galilean Prophet in healing the sick and overcoming sin and death.” Tenet three tells us how Jesus demonstrated over sin, how he had power over sin.
Tenet five says that Christian Scientists “acknowledge that the crucifixion of Jesus and his resurrection served to uplift faith to understand eternal Life, even the allness of Soul, Spirit, and the nothingness of matter [Adam man].” Jesus first resurrected Jairus’ daughter, the twelve-year old girl. Jesus comprehended that the girl was asleep in the Adam dream – the belief that material life is real. Once he lifted her up from this illusion she lived. The next resurrection Jesus performed was that of his friend Lazarus. It was amazing because Lazarus had been dead (via mortal mind belief) for four days. The body had already begun to decompose and smell. Jesus had to resurrect the thought of those around him out of the limitations of the first four days of conscious thought. The next demonstration over death that Jesus would have to make would be about his own death. Of course his body is all that appeared to be dead; if Jesus’ consciousness had died he could have never resurrected his body. Jesus not only utilized the power of Soul (that which maintains, retains, and sustains Life), but he also worked with the last three periods of spiritual consciousness (Life, Truth, Love).
The final Tenet says that Christian Scientists “solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that [divine] Mind to be in us [within our consciousness] which was also in Christ Jesus [which was also present in Christ Jesus’ consciousness]; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us [follow the Golden Rule; do not malpractice on anyone at all]; and to be merciful [express Life], just [express Truth], and pure [express Love].
Laura Seargent wrote, “Mother [Mary Baker Eddy] explained what Jesus meant when he said, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and thy neighbor as thyself; on this hangs all the law.’ In order to love God we must honor and love the Way. How can we love God unless we love His idea which shows us the way and which is the Way, and in order to honor and love the Way we must have a true sense of the individual through whom the Way has been manifested to us, else we are not keeping the law to love our neighbor as ourself, or doing by our neighbor as we would be done by.” (DCC p. 100, e.a.)
God’s idea which shows us the way is Mary Baker Eddy. Mary Baker Eddy told her artist of Christ and Christmas that there was another Way to be found in New England. And this is why the last illustration in this poem book, which is titled “The Way,” depicts a New England landscape. “Earnest Christians do learn to know Jesus Christ, but they had not learned how to “know thee, the only true God” prior to Mary Baker Eddy’s discovery of Christian Science…She opened the sealed book [the Bible] for all mankind. She has taught us how to “know thee, the only true God.” How has she done this? By giving us an understanding of the seven eyes of the Lamb “which are the seven Spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth.” (Rev 5:6) She has identified the seven Spirits of God as Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth, Love; and the more we learn of each of these seven Spirits, the greater becomes our understanding of God and of Life eternal.” (Doris Grekel; The Individual Christian Scientist; Volume XXXVIII, October, 2013, Number 2, pages 10, 12-13)
Getting back to the kingdom of heaven, there is further proof that this kingdom of heaven or kingdom of God is found in the United States and that is because it is where the birth of Christian Science – God’s Science – took place. America is where the second coming of Christ took place. The second coming of Christ did not come as a physical Jesus Christ, or even as a physical man. The Christ came as a woman and this woman explained Jesus’ words and works to mankind (this is the way that Jesus’ second coming appeared to the world). This woman is spoken of in Revelation 12. Revelation 12 takes place in the fourth vision of Revelation. This fourth vision is the capstone vision (the main focal point) of the whole entire book because it is based upon the Apocalyptic writing style, what I have renamed the Mountain Range Matrix Structure.
Jesus prophesied the second coming of Christ as “another comforter.” This other comforter is found in Revelation 12 as the woman God-crowned. This second advent of Christ took place in the United States from July 16, 1821 to December 3, 1910. The Golden Dawn Society predicted the second coming to take place in the year 1882. They did not recognize the second coming of Christ because they were looking for a reappearance of the man Jesus Christ. Yet, a female member of the Society, Pamela Coleman Smith, depicted the second coming of Christ in the Rider Tarot card deck. I feel that it was through spiritual inspiration that she was able to depict the woman God-crowned in her drawings. The Tarot cards were published in 1910 at the end of the woman’s God-crowned mission, for she left the bodily form on December 3, 1910.
The second coming of Christ was Mary Baker Eddy the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader (our Reverend [revered leader]) of Christian Science. It is documented fact that the signs that Jesus spoke about in regards to the second coming of Christ took place before and during Mary Baker Eddy’s life. One sign that most people do not take into account is the twin transits of Venus, the Morning Star (also spoken of in the Bible as being the Christ). Venus is symbolic of the goddess of Love, however, the planet Venus is also the symbol used to describe the woman God-crowned (Revelation 12), for she is clothed with the sun. When Venus makes its transit across the sun it is literally “clothed with the sun.” Venus, however, describes another symbol from Revelation 10 – the angel clothed with a cloud. Venus is literally clothed with a cloud of volcanic ash and smoke. Venus is the only planet with a retrograde rotation; it is therefore an Eddy planet.
Venus made two transits across the sun during the same time period that the United States was to become a new nation – the nation that would be the birth place of the second coming of Christ, yes, the United States is the union of the thirteen tribes of Israel.
The next twin transits took place during Mary Baker Eddy’s life. The first took place in 1874, the year before the publication of the first edition of her Textbook – Science and Health. The angel had descended from heaven. Eight years later, the time needed for Venus to travel the path of the pentacle star, Venus transited the sun in 1882, the same exact time that Mary Baker Eddy began to hint to others in letters that she was the woman God-crowned.
Venus would not transit the sun again until June 8, 2004 and its second transit took place on June 5, 2012. There were two outer signs, or symbols, about Venus during these time periods that pointed to the second coming of Christ. They were two books and two movies. The first book and movie, for the first transit, was The De Vinci Code. The second book and movie, for the second transit, was The Hunger Games. Of course, both stories must be spiritually interpreted back to God in order to comprehend the signs and symbols within the two stories.
Other fulfilled Bible signs of the second coming of Christ are as follows:
1. a great earthquake
November 1, 1755 was the great Lisbon earthquake. It extended over a track of at least four million square miles. It pervaded the greater part of Europe, Africa, and America. But its extreme violence was exercised on the southern part of Europe. This earthquake was generally looked upon as a divine castigation.
2. darkening of the sun
Thousands of people in North America witnessed the fulfillment of this prophecy on May 19, 1780. It was called “the dark day” because of remarkable darkness of that day. The obscuration began about ten in the morning and continued until the middle of the next night. It was described as being “midnight darkness at noonday.” They could not account for it from natural causes and they were terrified and it cast a universal gloom on the earth.
3. darkening of the moon
The moon was darkened at the same time that the sun was darkened. A Dr. Adams wrote, “Almost everyone who happened to be out in the evening got lost in going home. The darkness was as uncommon in the night as it was in the day for the moon was full the night before.”
4. stars falling from heaven
On the morning of November 13, 1833 there were shooting stars for a three-hour period. “Arago computes that not less than 240,000 meteors were at the same time visible above the horizon of Boston.” (from Our First Century Magazine) It would be the town of Boston where Mary Baker Eddy’s Mother Church would be built.
5. sign in heaven
This sign in heaven took place in February 26, 1866, thirty-three years after the stars fell from heaven. The “SIGN of the Son of man in heaven” was seen in Siberia as the Aurora Borealis. It was quite a light show according to the account recorded in Tent Life in Siberia by George Kennan. But what is really significant about this month is that it is the same exact month that Mary Baker Patterson (not yet Eddy) had her Christ healing demonstration. She was healed of a back injury that both her doctor and clergyman told her she would not survive, that she was going to die and she had best accept that death. This healing is when she discovered Christian Science.
There was even one more sign in heaven that month – the fact that even though a full moon had been predicted there was no full moon. After this time Mary Baker Patterson had no more monthly periods of blood, for her feet were upon the moon (Revelation 12).
The following are quotes written by Mary Baker Eddy upon this topic of Jesus’ and her place in Bible prophecy. These quotes were compiled by Paul Smillie and are found in his book MARY BAKER EDDY The Prophetic and Historical Perspective.
God’s prophesied idea
“The promises will be fulfilled.” (S&H p. 55/21-22) “The mission of Jesus confirmed prophecy, and explained the so-called miracles of olden time as natural demonstrations of the divine power, demonstrations which were not understood. Jesus’ works established his claim to the Messiahship.” (S&H p. 131:26-30, e.a.) “The revelation of Truth in the understanding came to me gradually and apparently through divine power. When a new spiritual idea is borne to earth, the prophetic Scripture of Isaiah is renewedly fulfilled: ‘Unto us a child is born,…and his name shall be called Wonderful.” (S&H p. 109:22 e.a.) “‘And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven…and he had in his hand a little book open…’ (Rev. 10) Did the same book contain the revelation of divine Science…? Take divine Science. Read the book from beginning to end.” (S&H p. 558:305, 6; p. 559:1-2, 20-21) “…St. John saw an ‘angel standing in the sun.’ The Revelator beheld the spiritual idea from the mount of vision.” (S&H p.561:7-9) “It is authentically said that one expositor of Daniel’s dates fixed the year 1866 or 1867 for the return of Christ—the return of the spiritual idea to the material earth or antipode of heaven. It is a marked coincidence that those dates were the first two years of my discovery of Christian Science.” (My. p. 181:27, emphasis added)
The higher visible idea
“The twelfth chapter of the Apocalypse, or Revelation of St. John has a special suggestiveness in connection with the nineteenth century. In the opening of the sixth seal, typical of the six thousand years since Adam, the distinctive feature [the woman] has reference to the present age. ‘Revelation xx. 1. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.’” (S&H p. 559:32-9, e.a.) “…the grand necessity of existence is to gain the true idea of what constitutes the kingdom of heaven in man. This goal is never reached while we hate our neighbor or entertain a false estimate of anyone whom God has appointed to voice His Word.” (S&H p. 560:13-17, 3.e.a.)
“The disciples followed Jesus up to a certain point, and then deserted him, and darkness followed. Follow the way-shower and you will follow the divine idea, turn away from the way-shower and you turn away from the divine idea, like turning away from the windowpane, you turn away from the light.” (DCC p. 26) “Again, without a correct sense of its highest visible idea, we can never understand the divine Principle.” (S&H p. 560:17-19, e.a.)
Mary Baker Eddy referred to herself as being the window pane. Mary Baker Eddy did fulfill Bible prophecy. It is the red dragon’s war against the woman that claims that she did no such thing. These are subtle arguments (for the serpent is subtle).
The serpent in the Garden along with materially minded Adam blamed the more spiritually minded woman and her vision, the revelator and her revelation. The woman uncovered the serpent and proclaimed the truth. Today, the dragon seeks to remove the one sent by God, to extinguish the light to the view of mortals and to have darkness reign again.
God said that the serpent would vex the woman but that the woman would destroy the serpent. The serpent has no power of its own so it tempts mankind, especially Christian Scientists, to turn away from the fact that the woman is the one appointed, anointed, and chosen by God to destroy the work of the red dragon. Adam minded men accept these suggestions and delusions. If we believe the lie that she does not fulfill prophecy then is her Science God-given or is it a philosophy? (Bill O’Reiley of Fox Network calls Christianity a philosophy. We must not do the same to Christian Science.)
How will mankind assess it: The rejection of Mary Baker Eddy’s place is the blatant attempt of male energy, original sin, to dominate science, theology, and medicine and to remove womanhood’s elevating influence.
Mary Baker Eddy fulfilled Jesus’ prophecy.
“Jesus bade his disciples beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees, which he defined as human doctrines. His parable of the ‘leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened,’ impels the inference that the spiritual leaven signifies the Science of Christ and its spiritual interpretation, — an inference far above the merely ecclesiastical and forms applications of the illustration. Did not the parable point a moral with a prophecy, foretelling the second appearing in the flesh of the Christ, Truth, hidden in sacred secrecy from the visible world?” (S&H p. 117:29-9, e.a.) “Christ expressed the Mind that is God, for Christ was the spiritual idea…The female thought is its last fleshly embodiment because this thought expresses the Mother-God, the male the Father.” (DCC p.61) “The leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, is Divine Science; the Comforter; the Holy Ghost that leadeth into all Truth; the ‘still, small voice’ that breathes His presence and power, casting out error and healing the sick. And woman, the spiritual idea, takes of the things of God and showeth them unto the creature, until the whole sense of being is leavened with Spirit.” (Mis. p. 174:30-5, e.a.)
I hope that my words help the Jehovah Witness woman to understand what Christian Science really is all about. I figure either she will accept what I have written or I will never see her again knocking on my door. I hope she comes back.
In the October 1, 2013 edition of The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom on page 15 the author of the article on color makes some big mistakes. First off, it is clear that they have never read anything about the Greek scriptures on Revelation 6 and 19. If they had they would have realized that chapter six’s white horseman is not the same as chapter nineteen’s white horseman. Two different words for white are used in the Greek text. The word used in chapter six translates into an off-white or maggot white tone. The word used in chapter nineteen translates to the pure-white. Hence, it is the horseman in Revelation 19 that “symbolizes the righteous warfare of Christ.”
Has this author even read Revelation? Does the author even understand what is going on in chapter 6? First off, there are the four living creatures. These living creatures represent the divine calculus (divine reasoning or reckoning) of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science. Ezekiel speaks of this divine calculus in his first chapter as the lion, the ox, the face of a man, and the flying eagle. These four living creatures spiritually translate four of the zodiac (zoo animals – living creatures) back to God. They are Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, and Scorpio/Libra united.
St. John uses the same symbols in Revelation. The only difference is he uses the lion, the bull, the face of a man, and the flying eagle. Now, these four living creatures sit around the throne of God in Revelation 4 and 5. They are used to nullify the four horsemen of Revelation 6. The four horsemen ride horses of differing colors: off-white, red, black, and ashen gray (the pale horseman). Because we are dealing with symbols of the zodiac here we must then begin to understand that the four horsemen (and the horses) also represent zodiac symbols.
The first living creature is for the Word, its symbol is the lion of Leo. This nullifies the off-white horseman of Sagittarius (the Archer).
The second living creature is for the Christ, its symbol is the bull or ox of Taurus. This nullifies the red horseman of Scorpio.
The third living creature is for Christianity, its symbol is the face of a man of Aquarius. This nullifies the black horseman of Libra (with its scales of unfair business, the black market).
Now that the two living creatures of divine reckoning have nullified Scorpio (false ideas about the Christ) and Libra (false Christianity) we can experience the fourth living creature.
The fourth living creature is for Science, its symbol is the flying eagle of Scorpio and Libra as one may now be united with Ophiucus – the serpent bearer or that which handles animal magnetism – the red dragon. This red dragon is nullified by Science. The red dragon of Adam man (who is made of red clay) is nullified. For he is the Ashen Horseman (symbol – Virgo) – the endtime/harvest. It is the purity of Virgo united with the word of Leo and the womanhood of Cancer that deals with death through Science. The womanhood of Cancer is Mary Baker Eddy, for she was born on July 16, 1821. Mary Baker Eddy is the second coming of Christ. She is the one who fulfilled the Arch of the Covenant (the Spirit of the Law) that God promised when Noah and his triplet son of the Three Degrees went out from the Ark of the Covenant (the Letter of the Law) after the rain had subsided for many, many days. Was it even really a rainbow that was in the cloud? Who can say with out the Hebrew text and correct definition? The words tell us that they saw a “bow in the cloud.” I have seen clouds that have many colors in them. But I am willing to admit that it may have been a rainbow even though it had stopped raining for a long period of time, because God could have put the rainbow in the sky.
Mary Baker Eddy fulfilled this “bow” cloud, this is why she is the white horseman of Revelation 19. She was also born in “Bow,” New Hampshire! For Mary Baker Eddy is the angel of Revelation 10, the one that descends from heaven (is God’s divine messenger) with “a little open book” that she titles Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. What is her Key? Her Key is the seven synonymous terms for God – Mind (red), Spirit (orange), Soul (yellow), Principle (green), Life (blue), Truth (indigo), and Love (violet). These seven colors of light all blend together to make pure white light. These seven colors of light also represent the seven days spoken of in Genesis 1-2:3. The First Day is Mind, the Second Day is Spirit, the Third Day is Soul, the Forth Day is Principle, the Fifth Day is Life, the Sixth Day is Truth (end of chapter 1), and the Seventh Day, the Sabbath, is Love. This is the Word order for the seven synonymous terms.
The Christ order has a complementary order. White – Principle, green – Life, indigo – Truth, violet – Love, yellow – Soul, orange – Spirit, and red – Mind.
Christianity has a circular order, like with the clock, but I begin the pattern with the number 6 for Principle (white burst of light), 7 for Mind (magenta), 8 for Soul (yellow), 9 for Spirit (cyan), 10 for Life (green), 11 for Truth (indigo), 12 for Love (violet), 1 for Truth, 2 for Life, 3 for Spirit, 4 for Soul, 5 for Mind, and back to 6 for Principle.
Science follows the same order as the Word except it has the same shape as the Golden Candlestick (giving the seven points of colored light), along with the divine calculus. I also refer to it as the Minor Pyramid Matrix of Principle.
This pattern is of most importance because it is the key pattern used for the book of Revelation’s structural makeup. There are seven visions (seven candlestick visions). But each candlestick has its own group of seven candlesticks making a pattern of forty-nine candlesticks in all. I call this the Mountain Range Matrix.
Mary Baker Eddy also provided four levels of Science. They are: Christian Science (on the relative conscious level), absolute Christian Science (on the absolute conscious level), divine Science (on the divine conscious level), and Science itself (the conscious level of metaphysical Principled Science).
Understanding the seven, four, and four is the KEY to opening up the Bible’s matrix structure or makeup. No other Christian religion or faith has this Key of David. I am not saying that they cannot have access to it or understand it; I am just saying that they are mostly unaware of the key’s existence or how to use it. This KEY is the system of God’s Science.

 The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts excommunicated Max Kappeler, so his teachings are not taught by the Church members in Boston, in fact, they are taboo. This does not make them incorrect teachings. Kappeler became what I call an Independent Christian Scientist. He was one of John W. Doorly’s students. Doorly was also excommunicated, however, Doorly was a student (taught by Bicknell Young [who was related to Brigham Young] in the 1910 class of instruction. This was the very last “authorized” class instruction held. (By “authorized” I mean it was the last class authorized by Mary Baker Eddy.)
 These four stages of human thought are: archaic, magical, mythical, and mental. The fifth stage is integral. (page 22 of Kappeler’s The Spiritual Breakthrough to the Next Millennium)
 I feel that during the Renaissance Tarot cards were originally created in order to present Bible prophecy to Christians.
