Evil is not power.

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. 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; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    SH 192 Evil is not power. It is a mockery of strength, which erelong betrays its weakness and falls, never to rise.

    This citation is so reassuring; that regardless of evil’s forms and degrees of severity, we only need to know it is false,
    that because we have the Mind if Christ we cannot be mesmerized, and that God is all the power and presence there is.

    If error had any reality in its taunting presence, David would not have vanquished it with just one pebble(one spiritual fact)!
    I just love it; to see through error’s false bullying suggestions. God is all, you are NOT!

    Thanks for the watching point this week; it clearly refers to error’s powerlessness despite its bullying appearances.
    This is why we must “Deal courageously, and the LORD shall be with the good.” II Chronicles 19 : 11

    The Matthew Henry commentary on this verse:
    They must act with resolution. “Deal courageously, and fear not the face of man; be bold and daring in the discharge of your duty, and, whoever is against you, God will protect you: The Lord shall be with the good.’ Wherever he finds a good man, a good magistrate, he will be found a good God.

    It helps to remember that in challenging the claims that come we must know that the Truth we are declaring is the Christ with us, which has all the power! I remember how helpless and hopeless I used to feel years ago when confronted with error because I did not have that deeper conviction of never being separated from God. The sense of God with us gives courage.
