For my Christian Science readers, I'm going to remind you of a harsh fact: Christian Scientsts die, just like everybody else. No where does Ms. Eddy claim that Christian Science will cause the MATERIAL BODY to live forever, it is Spiritual Man that is immortal. Expressing shock and grief at someone's passing is natural. What is … Continue reading the Unattainable perfect and clear comprehension of the living Spirit
Steiner’s Verses: Mother Earth, Father Sun
The sing-song voice of Kid1 floated into the kitchen: Give thanks to the Mother Earth.Give thanks to the Father Sun. These lines were repeated a few times, and then there was a crash of blocks as they moved on to something else. I asked Kid1 about the song later and was told "we sing at … Continue reading Steiner’s Verses: Mother Earth, Father Sun

Final Generation 2
I was inspired by the comments on the previous post to share a little more about my background. Everyone says they were "encouraged to explore and question," my father (selectively) encouraged my exploring and questioning. I did a lot of exploring and questioning, which is of the lovely, and often problematic, things about Christian Science: … Continue reading Final Generation 2
break the neck hypnotic beliefs and animal magnetism
I recently received an e-mail inviting me to "watch and pray" with a local CS group: Join us for the really rewarding spiritual experience of "keeping watch". Jesus expected his disciples to watch with him, Mrs Eddy had her household watch sometimes 3 days straight without sleep. It will be a continuous prayer from sunset … Continue reading break the neck hypnotic beliefs and animal magnetism
a little honesty, please
I think it is time for the Christian Science community to be a little more honest with themselves (and the public at large). The Mother Church can scoff at the "false" idea that Christian Science forbids it's followers from seeking medical care. The TMC can even let the NYTimes interview some CSPs with their blessing, … Continue reading a little honesty, please
supernatural & highly abstract hygiene
I follow a number of blogs written by both practicing and former Christian Scientists. I try to find ones that are inspiring, thought provoking, different, well-researched, and relatively new to the scene. There are lots of interesting CS and former-CS bloggers out there. The other day, LebensFreude-Heilung (for the English, visit Vitality and Healing) posted … Continue reading supernatural & highly abstract hygiene
Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?
The day after I mailed in my letter of voluntary withdrawal from The Mother Church I got junk mail from the same organization: Special Offer - 20% Savings! complete with the option to enroll in the Automatic Renewal Program. The pre-checked box said: YES! Please send me 12 issues of the Christian Science Quarterly Bible … Continue reading Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?
placating the masses & getting govmt. money
It is my turn to be inspired by a fellow blogger: Emerging Gently has a piece entitled Christian Science AND Medical Care? which inspired me to actually read the NYTimes piece instead of just skimming over it and sighing heavily at TMC's attempt at relevance. Back in 2010 the NYTimes ran a piece entitled: Christian … Continue reading placating the masses & getting govmt. money
