After recently conducting a poll, to see what people understand about the Bible Lesson, I was quite shocked by the results:
Firstly no one seemed to know its purpose. Secondly there was a feeling that we should just let some random words speak if we felt they had meaning in our mortal life. Thirdly very few people believed that the subject heading mattered.
This means that the Bible is viewed at best as a spiritualist platform or at worst as a supernatural mystery given by God to mortal lives, which makes our denomination no better or higher than a pentecostal demonstration.
In response, I have started to publish a historic lesson every week, with a study key, taken from Mrs Eddys Metaphysical College.
