For brevity, the link frame on the left uses CS to stand for “Christian Science,” MBE for “Mary Baker Eddy,” S&H for “Science and Health,” and KJV for “King James Version.” If you wish to know more about where the link is taking you, simply let your cursor rest over the link for a moment and a fuller note will appear.

 Matt 22:37-39  Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.


Rom 13:10   Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.


The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science, is Love.

If the print seems too small or too large on your monitor, it is possible with some monitor settings to generically adjust text size in your browser window.
