“The Spiritual Idea” Part 2

            The following excerpts are from Chapter 1 of AS IT IS, by Alice Orgain (beginning on page 17 and ending on page 90).  In this chapter she explains the difference between “a spiritual idea” and “the spiritual idea.”  She also speaks about Mary Baker Eddy’s illustrated poem Christ and Christmas.  This is a topic I have spoken a great deal upon, but I think that Alice Orgain has some interesting ideas upon the topic and this is the main reason for presenting this chapter to you.  I have made certain corrections in typing mistakes (misspelled words), punctuation, and when a magazine or book is mentioned I have used italics.  I will also capitalize all letters in BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.  All of the words in capital letters, besides the titles of the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH were originally in small caps in the book.  {All of my interpolations will be in grouping brackets.}  [When I am not quoting Orgain’s book my interpolations will be in regular brackets.]

SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, AND CAPITALISM

            A Christian Scientist and I had been speaking about the Presidential candidates and I told her I liked B. Sanders but I did not like socialism because it leads to communism.  I think I also gave her the equation of socialism = communism.  She wrote back to tell me that socialism was not communism.  It seemed as if she felt that socialism was not a bad thing, that it was a good thing, and that it had merits, as she listed past Presidents who used socialistic programs.  (Just because a President uses something does not make it good or even a necessity.)  I did not plan on writing all that I did back to her, but after I received something in the mail on that very same day discussing the same topic, which was written in 1945, I felt that I had to share parts of it with her.  (What I told her was wrong but it was also right.  To find out how this is can be – read the next paragraph.)

     When I heard that there was a new edition of Christ and Christmas and that it was supposed to have spectacular images I was willing to pay the money they asked for (plus shipping).

Mistakes Made About Christ and Christmas

     In the July 2015 issue of The Individual Christian Scientist there was an article called “The Dominant Power.”  In it were some mistakes made about Christ and Christmas.  I feel that this mistake should be pointed out since in the new issue of the periodical no mention was given about the mistakes that were made.  The following is on page 5 and it is under the title “No Page Numbers”.  By the way, “she” in the following paragraph is Mary Baker Eddy.

      “As I studied the five different styles of type she had used I found that she had used the first differing typeface on only two illustrations.  The second was used with four pictures; the third with two; and the fourth with one, alone.  The fifth and last typeface accompanied two illustrations.  I believe my Leader was telling me to consider all of the illustrations in a sequence differing from the order in which they are placed in the book. That, too, could very well be her reason for not numbering the pages in Christ and Christmas.”
