We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Did They Really Say That?

The universal belief in death is of no advantage.  It cannot make Life or Truth apparent.  Death will be found at length to be a mortal dream, which comes in darkness and disappears with the light.  Mary baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p.42.
So, according to Eddy, death is nothing but a mere belief, and just a dream.  I guess she knows the truth now!

Mary Baker Eddy says:

"The universal belief in death is of no advantage".

Perhaps; BUT a universal belief in LIFE AFTER DEATH - AHHH, now there is something one might call "an advantage"

But then I guess the advantage hinges on WHAT one believes about Life After Death.
