A divine basis for female/male equality – A SATURDAY THOUGHT

"Man and woman" by Tony Lobl - web

This quote is from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p.516) and celebrates a week in which the Christian Science Bible Lesson significantly focused on the spiritual ideal of male-female equality and the divine demand to make that pure ideal practical in our day to day experience.

  1. Hi Toni,
    thank you. I love this quote from the Christian Science textbook. It sets so much straight.

    BTW There is a small typng error above the photo, “A div”….

  2. I am not sure this picture is an example of what Mrs. Eddy would define as a divine basis of male and female equality. Perhaps she goes deeper with this statement:

    “Look long enough, and you see male and female one—sex or gender eliminated; you see the designation man meaning woman as well, and you see the whole universe included in one infinite Mind and reflected in the intelligent compound idea, image or likeness, called man, showing forth the infinite divine Principle, Love, called God,—man wedded to the Lamb, pledged to innocence, purity, perfection” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, pp. 268–269).

    Truth, Wisdom, Love and Sincerity, to ALL Mankind,
