Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, March 31, 1946, is "Reality" The golden text is "Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are Just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things", (Phil. 4:8) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Sorlptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "There Is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, For the law of the Spirit of life In Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death". (Romans 8:1,2) From the Christian Science textbook 1 B the following: "Jesus said substantially, 'He that boJIoveth in mo shall not see death', That is, he who perceives the true Idea of Life loses his belief In death. He who has the true idea of good loses all sense of evil, and by reason of this Is being ushered into the undying realities of Spirit", (p. 324) H. J.
