Christian Science - BOOK II - Chapter VI - THE NEW INFALLIBILITY

All in proper time Mrs. Eddy's factory will take hold of that
Commandment, and explain it for good and all. It may be that one member
of the shift will vote that the word "all" means all; it may be that ten
members of the shift will vote that "all" means only a percentage; but it
is Mrs. Eddy, not the eleven, who will do the deciding. And if she says
it is percentage, then percentage it is, forevermore--and that is what I
am expecting, for she doesn't sell all herself, nor any considerable part
of it, and as regards the poor, she doesn't declare any dividend; but if
she says "all" means all, then all it is, to the end of time, and no
follower of hers will ever be allowed to reconstruct that text, or shrink
it, or inflate it, or meddle with it in any way at all. Even to-day--
right here in the beginning--she is the sole person who, in the matter of
Christian Science exegesis, is privileged to exploit the Spiral Twist.
The Christian world has two Infallibles now.

Of equal power? For the present only. When Leo XIII. passes to his
rest another Infallible will ascend his throne; others, and yet others,
and still others will follow him, and be as infallible as he, and decide
questions of doctrine as long as they may come up, all down the far
future; but Mary Baker G. Eddy is the only Infallible that will ever
occupy the Science throne. Many a Science Pope will succeed her, but she
has closed their mouths; they will repeat and reverently praise and adore
her infallibilities, but venture none themselves. In her grave she will
still outrank all other Popes, be they of what Church they may. She will
hold the supremest of earthly titles, The Infallible--with a capital T.
Many in the world's history have had a hunger for such nuggets and slices
of power as they might reasonably hope to grab out of an empire's or a
religion's assets, but Mrs. Eddy is the only person alive or dead who has
ever struck for the whole of them. For small things she has the eye of a
microscope, for large ones the eye of a telescope, and whatever she sees,
she wants. Wants it all.

Christian Science - BOOK II - Chapter VI - THE SACRED POEMS
When Mrs. Eddy's "sacred revelations" (that is the language of the By-laws) are read in public, their authorship must be named. The By-lawstwice command this, therefore we mention it twice, to be fair.But it is also commanded that when a member publicly quotes "from thepoems of our Pastor Emeritus" the authorship shall be named. For theseare sacred, too. There are kindly people who may suspect a hiddengenerosity in that By-law; they may think it is there to protect theOfficial Reader from the suspicion of having written the poems himself.Such do not know Mrs. Eddy. She does an

Christian Science - BOOK II - Chapter VI - MONOPOLY OF SPIRITUAL BREAD
Very properly, the first qualification for membership in the Mother-Church is belief in the doctrines of Christian Science.But these doctrines must not be gathered from secondary sources. Thereis but one recognized source. The candidate must be a believer in thedoctrines of Christian Science "according to the platform and teachingcontained in the Christian Science text-book, 'Science and Health, withKey to the Scriptures,' by Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy."That is definite, and is final. There are to be no commentaries, nolabored volumes of exposition and explanation by anybody except Mrs.Eddy. Because such things could sow error, create warring
