Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, December 8, 1945, is "God the Only Cause and Creator." The golden text is "Thus salth the Lorl that created the heavens; God him. self that formed the earth and made It; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed It to bo inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else." (Isa. 45:18) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "6 the depth of the riches both of the wis. dom and knowledge of God! how un- searchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his cousellor? For of him, and through him, and to him are all things: to whom bo glory for ever. Amen." (Rom. 11:33,34,36) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "Every concept which seems to begin with the brain begins falsely. Divine Mind is the only cause or Principle of exist enoe. Cause does not exist in matter, in mortal mind, or in physical forms."
