Have you noticed that we always seem to hear the things we want to hear? If we are hungry, the call to dinner is eagerly answered. The call of a best friend asking if we want to come out and play brings a big smile. On the other hand, when we are busy doing something we love, mom or dad’s request to take out the trash may get repeated many times with no response.

A recent conversation in the car between my wife, Susanne, and our oldest son, Noah, was eagerly listened to by our daughter, Alma. The conversation did not concern Alma but she heard every word and was busy asking about some of the details. My wife laughed and commented, “Alma, I find it astounding that you can hear every word of a conversation that does not concern you, but when it comes time for somebody to ask you to do something it has to be repeated 10 times!”

You see, the fact is, it is almost universally true that we hear the things we want to hear, and see the things we want to see. Seeing and hearing are active faculties, motivated by our interests or likes and dislikes. And what we will discover in this week’s Bible Lesson on Soul, is that real hearing and seeing are much more than mere physical activities of eye and ear. Hearing and seeing are spiritual faculties, abilities that are not just physical activities of eye and ears. Our lesson will develop that theme—understanding the true depth of seeing and hearing as faculties of Soul, spiritual faculties that cannot be destroyed or hindered.

The Golden Text tells us from Isaiah 55, 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and from the Amplified Bible, “Incline your ear [to listen] and come to Me; Hear, so that your soul may live;

Section 1: There is only one Soul, God, not many.

A rather commonly accepted belief is that a “soul” is a tiny portion of spirit that dwells in the human body, a sort of spiritual portion of our identity. Religious teachings have sometimes fostered this belief, that there is a soul dwelling in man that following death either finds its way to heaven or hell. That is the basic Catholic concept. Also elements of animism, Platonic philosophy, and other thought systems have all grappled with the idea of a “soul” separate in man and of varying origins or differing lengths of existence from eternal to temporal.

In a Sunday School discussion my son, Johann, shared what one of his religion teachers told his class. This teacher told the students that the “soul” had a certain weight that had been measured as it departed a dying body. Needless to say I was rather surprised at Johann’s statement. But we then did a quick “google” check for the origin of this theory and we found many ongoing references even up to today of an experiment conducted in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1901 and published in 1907. It seems a Dr. Duncan MacDougall conducted an experiment on six dying individuals that showed a weight change of 21 grams at the point of death of one of the subjects. When in fact the results were based on only one patient. This experiment was published in The New York Times and entered the common knowledge of the day. It was passed on and on and often disputed. Although there was no true scientific method involved, this theory even continued to appear, and finally in a high school level religion class in Dresden, Germany in 2016! A good example of theories that have no basis in fact but are accepted into the common vernacular. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duncan_MacDougall_(doctor)

But doesn’t the readiness for human thought to accept such a silly result as something true and to be repeated even until present day show why we must persist in truth telling? It shows the need to share the clarifying insights from the Bible and from our textbook that bring out the inspired word of the Bible! This Bible Lesson is a great staring place for this!

Mary Baker Eddy wrestled throughout her life with concepts that seemed to condemn mankind to suffer. Even as a girl she protested traditional concepts of condemnation and salvation that governed in her day. Early on in her life there was a spirit that protested what seemed illegitimate and unfair treatment of her brothers and sisters in the theology of the day. You can read of one of these episodes in her autobiography, Retrospection and Introspection, Page 13:1 – 15:12 and also in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, Page 311: 12-17.

“At the age of twelve1 I was admitted to the Congregational (Trinitarian) Church, my parents having been members of that body for a half-century. In connection with this event, some circumstances are noteworthy. Before this step was taken, the doctrine of unconditional election, or predestination, greatly troubled me; for I was unwilling to be saved, if my brothers and sisters were to be numbered among those who were doomed to perpetual banishment from God. So perturbed was I by the thoughts aroused by this erroneous doctrine, that the family doctor was summoned, and pronounced me stricken with fever.

My father’s relentless theology emphasized belief in a final judgment-day, in the danger of endless punishment, and in a Jehovah merciless towards unbelievers; and of these things he now spoke, hoping to win me from dreaded heresy.

My mother, as she bathed my burning temples, bade me lean on God’s love, which would give me rest, if I went to Him in prayer, as I was wont to do, seeking His guidance. I prayed; and a soft glow of ineffable joy came over me. The fever was gone, and I rose and dressed myself, in a normal condition of health. Mother saw this, and was glad. The physician marveled; and the “horrible decree” of predestination — as John Calvin rightly called his own tenet — forever lost its power over me.”

As stated in this section of the lesson:
“The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.“ (B1, Psalms 34:3, 4, 8, 15, 22 … 22)

“Soul or Spirit signifies Deity and nothing else. There is no finite soul nor spirit. Soul or Spirit means only one Mind, and cannot be rendered in the plural.” (SH 1, 466:20–23)

“As used in Christian Science, Soul is properly the synonym of Spirit, or God; but out of Science, soul is identical with sense, with material sensation.” (SH 2, 482:9)

Section 2: Soul is pure and holy.

With this section we now begin to reap the benefits of the true understanding of Soul as God, Spirit. As Mrs. Eddy explains Soul is sinless, is in fact, God, and we are the expression of this Soul. Therefore we can see that those ways of thinking and acting we would term sin, are in fact nothing more than a false belief, a false sense that we have allowed ourselves to believe about ourselves and others. And what do we know about false belief can be dispensed with as we discover the truth. Was the earth ever flat? No. But as long as the false belief existed the false sense affected experience. Maybe we don't think

As stated in citation SH8 “Soul is immortal because it is Spirit, which has no element of self-destruction. Is man lost spiritually? No, he can only lose a sense material. It is a sense of sin, and not a sinful soul, which is lost. Evil is destroyed by the sense of good. Through false estimates of soul as dwelling in sense and of mind as dwelling in matter, belief strays into a sense of temporary loss or absence of soul, spiritual truth. This state of error is the mortal dream of life and substance as existent in matter, and is directly opposite to the immortal reality of being. So long as we believe that soul can sin or that immortal Soul is in mortal body, we can never understand the Science of being. When humanity does understand this Science, it will become the law of Life to man, — even the higher law of Soul, which prevails over material sense through harmony and immortality.” (311:7–9, 12–25)

The practical nature of this was demonstrated to me in an experience I have shared before. A new student of Christian Science was busy studying a copy of Science and Health he had from a college instructor. Both he and his wife were enthusiastic in their study. This young man had been an active member in his Pentecostal church and then had been sent as a Marine to the Viet Nam war. His actions there as a member of an elite squad troubled him greatly. He returned home, found Science and Health, and then faced a mysterious ailment of some kind. It seemed medical remedies did not work and blood tests were made and sent to the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia. The results came back to him with basically a sentence of death. The tests revealed a toxic blood condition that was without medical remedy. I received a call from his wife in the middle of the night, her request, “Rick, could you please pray for Dick’s soul?” I sensed that as death loomed before my new friend, he had great fear for his soul. (His concept of his soul being condemned to hell because of his actions in the war.) I prayed with one simple idea, “Man is not condemned to suffer. Man is the pure and holy, beloved idea of God. The expression of Soul, not sense.”

SH9 | 492:7–12 “ Being is holiness, harmony, immortality. It is already proved that a knowledge of this, even in small degree, 9 will uplift the physical and moral standard of mortals, will increase longevity, will purify Mind one and all and elevate character. Thus progress will nally destroy 12 all error, and bring immortality to light.”

And that is what happened, “immortality was brought to light.” At 8:30 a.m. Dick was walking up my driveway with the biggest smile you could imagine. Later tests revealed that the toxic condition had been reversed, and CDC did not believe the test samples from the second test were the same individual, but they were.

Section 3: Are you listening?

In this section you will read the beautiful story of Samuel and his spiritual guide, Eli. God was calling to Samuel, “That the Lord called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.” Samuel was not sure what to do and kept running to Eli. What do you want? Eventually Eli gave the instruction to Samuel, when you hear the voice reply, “Speak for thy servant heareth.” (B11) And Samuel continued in the service of God.

A similar event is recorded in the life of Mary Baker Eddy. Mrs. Eddy describes this in her book, Retrospection and Introspection, the chapter is entitled, “Voices not our own.” Pages 8 and 9.

“Voices Not Our Own

“Many peculiar circumstances and events connected with my childhood throng the chambers of memory. For some twelve months, when I was about eight years old, I repeatedly heard a voice, calling me distinctly by name, three times, in an ascending scale. I thought this was my mother’s voice, and sometimes went to her, beseeching her to tell me what she wanted. Her answer was always, “Nothing, child! What do you mean?” Then I would say, “Mother, who did call me? I heard somebody call Mary, three times!” This continued until I grew discouraged, and my mother was perplexed and anxious.

One day, when my cousin, Mehitable Huntoon, was visiting us, and I sat in a little chair by her side, in the same room with grandmother, — the call again came, so loud that Mehitable heard it, though I had ceased to notice it. Greatly surprised, my cousin turned to me and said, “Your mother is calling you!” but I answered not, till again the same call was thrice repeated. Mehitable then said sharply, “Why don’t you go? Your mother is calling you!” I then left the room, went to my mother, and once more asked her if she had summoned me? She answered as always before. Then I earnestly declared my cousin had heard the voice, and said that mother wanted me. Accordingly she returned with me to grandmother’s room, and led my cousin into an adjoining apartment. The door was ajar, and I listened with bated breath. Mother told Mehitable all about this mysterious voice, and asked if she really did hear Mary’s name pronounced in audible tones. My cousin answered quickly, and emphasized her affirmation.

That night, before going to rest, my mother read to me the Scriptural narrative of little Samuel, and bade me, when the voice called again, to reply as he did, “Speak, Lord; for Thy servant heareth.” The voice came; but I was afraid, and did not answer. Afterward I wept, and prayed that God would forgive me, resolving to do, next time, as my mother had bidden me. When the call came again I did answer, in the words of Samuel, but never again to the material senses was that mysterious call repeated.”

Mrs. Eddy writes in citation SH13 a paragraph with the marginal heading, “Childlike receptivity,” “The effects of Christian Science are not so much seen as felt. It is the “still, small voice” of Truth uttering itself. We are either turning away from this utterance, or we are listening to it and going up higher. Willingness to become as a little child and to leave the old for the new, renders thought receptive of the advanced idea.” (323:28–2)

Section 4: Soul expressed by man, seeing and hearing spiritually.

[Citations from Matthew in this section show that Jesus’ religion was one of results:] “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.” (B14, Matt. 9:35)

“And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: 31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.” (B15, Matt. 15:30, 31)

As Mary Baker Eddy summarizes this healing work: “Knowing that Soul and its attributes were forever manifested through man, the Master healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, feet to the lame, thus bringing to light the scientific action of the divine Mind on human minds and bodies and giving a better understanding of Soul and salvation. Jesus healed sickness and sin by one and the same metaphysical process.” (SH15, 210:11)

Here’s her textbook definition of “EYES. Spiritual discernment, — not material but mental.” (SH17, 586:3)

My family can attest to the fact that through the revelation of Christian Science the days of Christian healing were not just relegated to the time of Jesus or a few hundred years afterward. With Mary Baker Eddy’s discovery of Christian Science and the subsequent publication of her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures the healing power of the Christ is forever present. In 1919 my grandmother and grandfather looked on as their second child, my mother, seemed very soon to be taken from them. At 18 months of age my mom was suffering with a fever and was unable to move. The doctor had done his best but gave little hope for my mom’s survival. At this point my grandmother, daughter of Czech immigrants called another Czech immigrant to pray for them. This lady had recently gotten a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and it guided her prayers. The very fact that I am here tells you the result of those prayers, my mother was healed. And her parents took up the study of Christian Science.

This Science opened a whole new era to my family. At the time my great grandfather and his sister were both blind. And they were both healed in Christian Science. No, the time of Christian healing is not for bygone eras. it is for now and always, thanks to our beloved Master, Christ Jesus, and his modern day disciple, Mary Baker Eddy, and to all those who listened to the call of the Christ and responded with healing. The healing power in the pages of Science and Health is available to every listening ear and every hungering heart. But we do have to be receptive as the little child, eager, listening, looking beyond the testimony of the material senses, with spiritual sense.

Section 5: Seeking and expressing Soul brings healing.

Our Master called the twelve unto him and empowered them to share their understanding of the Christ. “Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.” (B18, Luke 9:1, 2)

Then he called others, “ After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:” [B19, Luke 10:1, 2, and a Cobbey Crisler insight in P.S. 3]

It is clear that the hundreds of years since our Master walked, taught, and shared has allowed his Gospel, his message, his good news to be spread far and wide. And the most incredible thing about this Gospel of Love is that it sprouts in the heart of every receptive listener. It is impossible to contain the power of the Gospel to one group, one church, one land, one culture; it simply multiplies with every listening ear.

As Mary Baker Eddy writes, “God is universal; confined to no spot, defined by no dogma, appropriated by no sect. Not more to one than to all, is God demonstrable as divine Life, Truth, and Love; and His people are they that reflect Him — that reflect Love. Again, this infinite Principle, with its universal manifestation, is all that really is or can be; hence God is our Shepherd. He guards, guides, feeds, and folds the sheep of His pasture; and their ears are attuned to His call. In the words of the loving disciple, “My sheep hear my voice, . . . and they follow me; . . . neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” Mis. 150:25

This weekend I shared in one of the most moving examples of “hearing” the Gospel that I have ever experienced. I was with all my children and two of our neighbor children at a country music open air event. We were there primarily to support a dear friend, Nils Tuxen. Some of you might know Nils through his participation at the Annual Meeting of The Mother Church in Berlin, in 2003. Nils is a world-class musician. Since he lives five hours away, we were taking the opportunity to hear him at an open air venue just 1 and 1/2 hours away. Nils was there as part of the back-up band for headliner, Charlie McCoy. Charlie is a longtime Nashville musician, songwriter, and singer. His harmonica playing is considered some of the best of all time. Shortly before Charlie’s opening set, Nils asked me to come and speak with Charlie. We were a little group gathered together backstage. It was an absolute joy as we talked together about back home and some of his experiences. As we spoke Martina, Nil’s wife, brought my daughter Alma to me. She was crying, tears streaming down her face; she had had a painful fall. I comforted and silently prayed for her, whispering some truths in her ear. And then Charlie quietly said,

“Darlin’ if I could I’d like to play you a little song?” He took a harmonica out of his pocket and began to play. I have never heard “Amazing Grace” played with such soulful feeling in all my life. There just seemed to be no more room for hurt, or pain, or sorrow as we listened. As he finished he simply said, “God will take that hurt all away.” And he was right Alma had stopped crying and starting smiling, just at the same time her papa was finding it very, very hard not to cry as tears were streaming down my face. The moment, what can I say, the pure loving Christliness that was expressed, thinking of “Amazing Grace” author John Newton, redeemed and saved as a former slave ship captain, and here this dear man, Charlie, letting the grace of Christ embrace us all, and heal my daughter.

It was no surprise that after that Charlie asked if we could pray together for a dear friend, Laney Smallwood, on her wedding day. Charlie could not be there, but earnestly prayed that her day would be blessed and as we all affirmed where “two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

Soul expressed heals, saves, and redeems and lifts us up.

Section 6: Rejoice in the joys of Soul.

The world has great need for each of us to be seeing and hearing spiritually right now. Are we listening to what God is saying? Are we seeing what God is doing? It seems the world scene at the moment presents an overwhelming picture of turmoil and distress, but look up. Stop, look, and listen to what Soul is telling us and showing us. God, Soul is supreme and every moment revealing His Love for all the world, all the universe. Are we listening? Are we looking to Him?

We are reassured by passages from our Pastor:
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (B21, III John 1:2)

“I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.” (B25, Jeremiah 32:41)

“Science inevitably lifts one’s being higher in the scale of harmony and happiness. Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind, and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping, if sought in Soul.” (SH28 | 60:2, 29–31)

Today my thought turns to CedarS Camp where our last session of the summer, “Family Fine Arts Camp” is taking place. I rejoice in the Soulful expression I know will be a part of every activity this week. I am thinking of all the wonderful experiences that my children had this summer. I am thinking of my deepest gratitude for every counselor as they choose to give of their time in the summer to cherish God’s little ones day and night. I am thinking of the staff members who listen and follow Soul’s inspiration as they accomplish their duties with grace and love. I am thinking of specialists and parent volunteers that have chosen to give of their love and time and make CedarS an even more holy place to enjoy. In my two week as resident practitioner I witnessed about 75 deep, profound, and simple healings. It was a joy to “high-five” many of those healed as we crossed paths around camp. And I am grateful for all the other sessions and practitioners and the countless healings that took place over the entire summer.

Together we walked the theme of the summer, “Find wholeness in the "way of holiness” (Isaiah 35:8)

Perhaps it was all summed up in the words my daughter Alma quoted as we faced a little challenge in our summer travels, “Papa, ‘Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need,” That was a new sentence for her learned at camp! Can you ask for anything more powerful than that? Thank you Father.


[Warren’s *P.S.1 on Cobbey Crisler’s insights on Psalms 19:7, 8 (B2):
“Read Psalms chapter 19:7-9 and you will discover there are quality controls as far as God’s medicine is concerned: all the things you would want to see on the label. Look at the words “perfect,” “sure,” right,” “pure,” “clean,” and “true,” which has the meaning in Hebrew of stable. You want a stable product. You want a clean product. You want it pure. You want it right. You don’t want the wrong remedy. You want it sure. You want it perfect.”

[W’s *P.S.2 on Cobbey Crisler’s insights on Job 23:13 (B3):
“In Job 23:13 we find two revelations from God to Job about God’s nature. Because there’s only one way that you and I can ever find out anything out about God who is the only one who knows who God is, God [Himself/Herself]. God must do the revealing and here Job has two concepts revealed to him about God. And you know we don’t get anything unless we’re ready for it. Job is ready. He needs this, doesn’t he?... Why does Job need to know God as “one [mind], and as soul”?
What’s been his problem? One problem is identity. He said (in Job 9:21, 22) even “[if I said] I am perfect… Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul:” Here if soul is identified with God, where does one find one’s identity? Then, whatever he was thinking about as his soul, if he had it, would have to image forth the One Soul. How many souls are there? If you relate the word “soul” to God, there is no other possible alternative than for a monotheist to see one, with whatever is revealed to us about God. That may be tough logic, but if soul is related to God, as a synonym, then there can only be One. So, to seek his identity in that oneness-of-God will tell him more about himself.
What about one mind? Why did he need to know that? [Voice: Because it was God?”] That’s right. And he’d been having a dialogue with many minds, hadn’t he? Nothing but just One Mind as opposed to many, polytheistic gods, or many minds, many opinions… Just think of that beautiful revelation that comes as a solution to all that.”

[W’s *P.S.3
on Cobbey Crisler’s insights on Luke 10:1-21 (B19):
“Chapter 10, “the harvest is great, but there are not many workers out there.” That is what Jesus says in verse 2. It also underscores the need for disciples, and explains why now seventy go out (see verse 1).
… Verse 9 makes it quite clear that now there are not just twelve going out, but seventy whom Jesus expects to leave and come back with every kind of human problem solved through prayer alone.”
“The seventy come back” in verse 17. They are so enthusiastic over the results that they are probably tripping over each other to get to Jesus and tell him. Because they went out in pairs, he has thirty-five pairs coming back with tales of what they’d done.
Imaging any class in any subject being so effective that the entire student body could go out, do such field work, and come back with the evidence and the proof that they’d understood what they were doing, and that the teacher had been such an effective communicator!
Verse 20. Jesus said, “You know what? You are rejoicing for the wrong reason. You think it’s great all those results out there. And it really is. But the real reason to rejoice is that your names are written in heaven.” That tells us something rather radical about the reason for rejoicing in healing. It has something to do with our identity. ... It's as if our original names and natures have been ratified as the result of healing work on earth. ... If our names are written (in heaven), who did the writing? ... Man, restored and whole, represents the heavenly model and standard which is the norm for man that God has revealed through Jesus to us. ... And if our names are written in heaven, where is heaven? If it's within, we don't have to go anywhere. We don't have to commute to find our identity. ... Namely, an identity that is related to the kingdom, not anarchy or disease. It is a government, a comprehension of God and man immediately assessable to us, and applicable to the human problem…
That is so advanced because it’s so simple. What is simple is not received by a state of mind that has become used to the complex. Notice verse 21. It is a prayer of Jesus starting with gratitude, “I thank thee, O Father, that you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.” My own father said to me, “There is your Scriptural authority directly from Jesus that a child should understand Bible symbolism before the scholar.” Childlike thought is receptive to meaning. It will yield. It will trust. It is ready to learn. It doesn’t have so many educated theories to get around.
Once again, we find that access to Jesus’ theology requires a mental state that isn’t childish, but is childlike, receptive and open."
