Henry Lee Bates - Brief Bio

The Aramaic Lordís Prayer
Our Father, which art in Heaven, Hallowed
is Thy Name.  Thy Kingdom is come.  Thy will is done on earth as it is in Heaven.  Thou givest this day our daily bread.  Thou forgivest us our trespasses as
we forgive those who trespass against us.  Thou leadest us not into temptation but dost deliver us from
all error.  For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the
glory, forever.

   "One's willingness to stand firm in their conviction (s) is a sure sign of the "realization of self" of that individual.
...thanks again for the passion that you exhibit for the teaching of Religious Science."

           As a former Catholic, I understand the value of the teachings of Catholicism.  My family being Baptist, I attended the First Baptist Church of Paris, Missouri in my early childhood years.  My sister married a Catholic and converted to Catholicism.  One day I went with her to Mass and I knew that the Catholic Church had something very important for me and I became fascinated with the teachings of the Catholic Church.  In my early twenties, I converted to Catholicism after taking Confirmation classes in Portland, Oregon.  I knew that this was a path that I must travel and I attended Mass regularly more than once or twice a week.

Catholicism teaches a great faith in the "Unseen," Power and Presence of God.  However, I found as I studied the life of Jesus, much of the traditions and dogma of the Catholic Church actually contradicted the teachings of Jesus.  This realization caused me to seek other avenues of spiritual guidance.  In scripture we can read, "seek and ye shall find."  I found Religious Science.  In Religious Science, which is the "Religion of Jesus," we know that, as did Jesus, this "Unseen" Power and Presence Is All There Is.  Throughout the Old and New Testaments scripture after scripture confirms this conclusion.  Jesus demonstrated this Truth greater than any other person who has walked on this planet.  Others had His same theory and philosophy, but could not demonstrate the visible results.  Dr. Ernest Holmes studied the life and work of Jesus and it was revealed to him the method and practices of Jesus' prayer and philosophy.  Dr. Holmes, like Jesus, understood that this philosophy was worthless without demonstrating it as Healing, Prospering and Blessing those who seek our help, which is what all followers of Jesus are "Divinely Called" to do.

           The three greatest revelations of Jesus' work discovered by Dr. Holmes are:  the "Law of Mind," stated by Jesus as "it is done unto you as you believe."  Since we can only "believe" with our mind, the consistent attitude of our mind is always "doing unto us."  Nobody can do unto us, but us, for it is done unto us as we believe.  The second great revelation that Dr. Holmes discovered in the work of Jesus was the Law of Cause and Effect.  Jesus stated this as "Sowing and Reaping."  Dr. Holmes demonstrated that as we sow the thoughts, ideas, concepts and beliefs into the fertile soil of our mind, we create the effects or experiences in our life.  The third great discovery and possibly the greatest is  the method in which Jesus prayed.  Jesus first recognized that God Is All There Is; All Power, All Presence and All Intelligence, then He unified with this Allness of God ("I and the Father are One"); He then realized that whatever he asked for "knowing that it is His already" is His; and therefore He could give thanks for it knowing that on the Unseen Side of Life it was beginning the process of manifestation.  He then could release any doubts, worry or effort to "make it happen" and go on to whatever was before Him.  In the Science of Mind, the philosophy of Religious Science, Dr. Holmes details this as the Five Steps of Scientific Prayer:  1.  Recognition, 2. Unification, 3. Realization, 4. Thanksgiving and 5. Release.  Scientific Prayer is the Effective Method of Prayer practiced and demonstrated by Jesus.

           I discovered Religious Science through Divine Guidance.  If you are reading the information on this page, you too, have been Divinely guided to this "Religion of Jesus."  It may very well be what you have believed all along.  Please contact me if I can answer any questions for you.  Contact Rev. Bates

            Maximum blessings,
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
