Elisha's example

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    The story and example of Elisha is very impressive. When the enemy army was blinded, and he could have done whatever he wished, he lead them to where they belonged and even provided food, and then sent them away. The result was that the Syrian army did not invade the land of Israel again. This to me is proof that the enemy is not person, not the other people over there, but rather it is mortal human mind. And the obvious lesson is that the correct response is given by the divine Mind, not human reason. It is so easy to get aggravated or fearful over other’s misdeeds, but the aggravation with people or fear of them is as much error as the misdeed. The clear instruction in Christian Science is to separate error from person.
