THE MONROE DOCTRINE AND OUR CONSTITUTION

The following is a continuation from my last post Paul Smillie’s Twenty-fourth Question.  This post begins with the material from Paul R. Smillie’s book MARY BAKER EDDY (page 313). Mr. Smillie’s first edition book was written in the 1980’s and what he writes still holds true today. After this I will quote from one of Doris Grekel’s biographies on Mary Baker Eddy, some writings by Augusta E. Stetson, C.S.D., and then there is a quote by Mary Baker Eddy.  After this first group of footnotes are two more Augusta Stetson sections that I felt fit in with this post so I added them, you could say that they are post post.  They both have their own grouping of footnotes (I did an experiment, so they are a little different).   All of my interpolations will be in number group brackets.

Paul Smillie’s Twenty-fourth Question

     Recently, on a game show, there was a question about Tom Cruise.  The contestants were to name something that was well known about him.  One woman said, “He is a Christian Scientist.”  Well, this was not so.  Her more intelligent family member said, “He is a member of the Church of Scientology.”  This was correct.  It is a sad state of affairs when the world does not know enough about Christian Science to keep anyone from confusing it with the cult (bad use of the word) the Church of Scientology.  What is the difference between the two?  The important difference is that Christian Science defeats animal magnetism while the Church of Scientology employs the use of animal magnetism!  The following excerpt helps us to understand why such a mistake could even take place today.  It is from Paul Smillie’s book (2nd edition) MARY BAKER EDDY The Prophetic and Historical Perspective.  It begins on page 303.  [My comments will be within brackets.]

Linear Progression of Christ and Christmas and Levels of Windows, Pt. 1

 

The Linear Progression of Christ and Christmas and the Levels of the “Picture Windows” to The First Church of Christ Scientist (Part 1)

 

     On Saint Patrick’s Day of 2014 I received a manuscript in the mail from a friend of mine.   The author of the manuscript is J. W. S. Cox (a Doorly student).  The first part is about the illustrations of Mary Baker Eddy’s poem Christ and Christmas, which Mr. Cox presents in a linear progression.  The second part is about most of the windows found in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. What Mr. Cox presents seems to be correct for the linear progression, however, if we were to analyze the poem and illustrations in the pyramid or circular matrixes then we would come out with a different outcome for the matrix structures.  There is also the graphics in the earlier editions that we must pay attention to.  All of these different ways of looking at the poem book have presented in other posts.

Judge Hanna’s Christ and Christmas – Part 6

MRS. EDDY’S EXPLANATION OF THE ILLUSTRATED POEM “CHRIST AND CHRISTMAS”  AS GIVEN BY JUDGE SEPTIMUS J. HANNA    Part 6

We are now ready to take our fifth step up on the Major Pyramid Matrix of Truth to its apex capstone.  This illustration is different from the rest of the illustrations because it fills the tone of Truth on the Side of Life and the Side of Light.  I feel that the first illustration drawn for the earlier edition may have had an old woman in the bed.  It could be an old man, but I am not sure about it.  I know for sure, after reading Recollections of Mary Baker Eddy by James F. Gilman, that the person in the bed of the first illustration was meant to be a man.  There is no doubt that the later edition is of an old man because he has a beard.  Was the man changed because having a beard meant that he was more seriously ill?  There certainly is more medicine on the table in the later illustration.  Also, the first illustration has a dark mantle on Mary Baker Eddy (as Jesus is depicted having), while in the later illustrations her mantle is white.  On the Side of Life her mantle is black, while on the Side of Light her mantle is white.  I think this is due to the fact that the dark mantle is symbolic of material organization which is bound to the Letter of the Law because man is BELIEVED to be a sinner.  It is this false teaching of scholastic theology that Mary Baker Eddy must heal – the belief  that man has fallen and cannot get up – cannot get to  heaven.  The white mantle, on the other side, symbolizes the spiritual system of Scientific understanding which demonstrates the Spirit of the Law resulting in Christian Science Healing.

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.

Deletion, a Feign to Idolatry!

     I have published before, in other postings, that Mary Baker Eddy’s picture was deleted, removed, from the frontispiece of Science and Health with Key to the Scripture.  Likewise, the same thing happened to her picture that was the frontispiece for Miscellaneous Writings.  (See below.)

MBE Miss     The above page is from CHRISTIAN SCIENCE:  MARY BAKER EDDY  ‘True Estimate of God’s Messenger’ Part II 1891-1901.
     Below is the page removed from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

Mary B.E. cross

     The pictures of Mary Baker Eddy in both books served as her Trademarks to these two books!
     The following picture is the pyramid marker placed on the homeland of Mary Baker Eddy’s birth in Bow, New Hampshire.  The reason for it being dynamited by an illegal (consisting of five members instead of the legal four members) Board of Directors is the feign that the pyramid would lead people into the idolization of Mary Baker Eddy.  They felt that people should not travel to Bow to see the Holy Land that Mary Baker Eddy was born on even though millions of people travel to the Holy Land of Jesus to see where he was born and crucified.

MBE-CROWNED

     The above is from Paul Smillie’s biography on Mary Baker Eddy.
     And of course, slowly over the years after December 3, 1910, the two Sentinel Women were deleted from the cover of the Sentinel that Mary Baker Eddy gave instructions to for its design.  “Keeping abreast of the times” is just a feign to erase the two NOBEL women known as Mary (second advent) and Martha (third advent).  See pages 47-49 of Essays and Other Footprints (the Red Book) to understand what I am speaking of.

A NOBEL TYPE OF WOMANHOOD

A NOBEL TYPE OF WOMANHOOD

     Lastly, let us not forget that after December 3, 1910 that Mary Baker Eddy’s name and office was stricken from the illegal (not approved by the hand of Mary Baker G. Eddy) 89th edition of the Church Manual.  Her name and office were replaced later on after the Field complained about it.  The denial of Mary Baker Eddy’s place in Bible prophecy, the denial of her being the woman God-crowned, the refusal to refer to her as Leader have all been propagated by the Boston elite, a.k.a. the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism.  This error must end!

The Real American Christmas

THE REAL AMERICAN CHRISTMAS

In a speech in Newburyport, Massachusetts during 1837 John Quincy Adams said:  Why is it that, next to the birth day of the Saviour of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [July 4th]?…Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birth-day of the Saviour?  That it forms a leading event in the progress of the gospel dispensation?  Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth?  That it laid the corner stone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity…?

The Second Coming of Christ

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST

St. John 14:26 – But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost [pneuma]; whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

“In the words of St. John:  ‘He shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.’  This Comforter I understand to be Divine Science.” (S&H 55:27) Read the rest of this entry »

The Ancient War On Women

THE ARTICLE, JESUS and PAUL, the TWO WITNESSES, and the MOST IMPORTANT WOMAN OF ALL

     A few months ago I received a Jehovah’s Witness publication for September 1, 2012, called The WATCHTOWER.  In it was an article called “Does God Care About Women?”  I would like to quote from it, as I feel that it is a good article, especially since there has been the claim that there is a war on women being waged in this year’s politics.  The article begins with two quotes that are not from the Bible.
     “Sin began with a woman, and thanks to her we must all die.” – Ecclesiasticus, Second Century B.C.E.
     You are the devil’s gateway:  you are the unsealer of that forbidden tree:  you are the first deserter of the divine law…You destroyed so easily God’s image, man.” – Tertullian, on the Apparel of Women, Second Century C.E.

The Sacrifice of Fatherhood

The Sacrifice of Fatherhood

Yesterday someone asked me why God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son, what kind of God would do that?  Today on line I read a similar question.  It is because this same question has come up twice within a twenty-four hour period that I feel that I should respond on this topic.
