Beliefnet
Everyday Spirituality

Details, details, details. Sometimes they drive us nuts, other times they are extremely pertinent to a situation. In the case of religion, when the demand is to keep religion relevant, details can be reviewed. This post is the third in a series of reviews of the tenets associated to Christian Science.

Tenet number 3, from Science and Health, reads: We acknowledge God’s forgiveness of sin in the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding that drives out evil as unreal. But sin will continue to be self-punished as long as the belief lasts.

My comments:

  • Despair, destruction, torture, decay, etc. can be overcome with Life, Truth, and Love.
  • Hate, fear, revenge, unfaithfulness, and so on, melt in the presence of spiritual understanding. Hate will not melt in the presence of more hate.
  • All that works against God, Soul, can vanish from consciousness.
  • To believe in a power opposite God, good, is to experience its self-sabotaging nature.
