We gladly welcome your comments on our Forum and Bulletin Board but we do maintain the right to edit and/or take down anything we 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!

    I am very grateful for the helpful articles and inspiring writings on “Forgiveness” in the July issue of “Love is The Liberator” Magazine.
    The new magazine cover is exquisite! I am so grateful to All who put so much Love into this magazine for all of us to enjoy! It is such a treat to read! Thank you, Luanne for the beautiful paintings! They are simply awesome!

    In particular, I found the following quote from Mrs. Eddy very helpful:

    Forgiveness
    Excerpt from Course in Divinity and General Collectanea, (the “Blue Book”) by Mary Baker Eddy
    “Never resent a wound from anyone, but always leave it to God to avenge and heal. He will rightly reward; you cannot. Forgiveness is forgetfulness of sin, disease and all error in others and in ourselves. No wrong is forgiven until it is forgotten. If this is not done, it works like remembering disease; it makes you a sinner; it grows chronic and incurable. If we do not do this, it does us more harm than our enemies.”

    This is a powerful idea …” Never resent a wound from anyone, but always leave it to God to avenge and heal.” and “No wrong is forgiven until forgotten.”(from the above quote by Mary Baker Eddy.) Forgiveness and forgetfulness must go hand in hand for complete healing. It is not enough to just forgive, but to wipe it out of thought completely. When it is no longer in thought, we will no longer suffer from the condition or situation, whether it be sin or disease. This reminds me that when I thoroughly treat an error and meet it with the Truth; I can know that my treatment is effective. If it crops up in my thought again, I can say NO emphatically, knowing it is over and done and has no power to continue or to come back. As we have been instructed here at our Roundtable meetings, we are to wake up from the bad dreams and see they are not true and then let them go.
