Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for December 7, 1947 ia "God The Only Cause And Creator." The golden text Is "Every house is builded by some man; but he that buUt ail things Is God." (Heb. 3:4) 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: "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he glveth to all life, and breath, and all things; For in him wo live, and move, and have our being." (Acts 17:24,25, 28 to;) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "Human capacity is slow to discern and to grasp God's creation and the divine power and presence which go with it, demonstrationg its spiritual origin. Paganism and agnosticism may define Deity as 'the great unknowable;' but Christian Science brings God much nearer to man, and makes Him better known as the All-in-all, forever near."
