Not Imputing Their Tresspasses

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!

    Rom 8:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

    From Webs 1828: To impute: To charge; to attribute; to set to the account of; generally ill, sometimes good.
    This means we miss the effect of redemption if we continue to impute trespasses to personality. To redeem we must rebuke when needed but then separate the lie from individuals, and destroy the mesmerizing error as ever being part of God’s likeness, as we are repeatedly taught to do in this Church. It is impossible to reconcile two opposing qualities. Only Christ-likeness can be reconciled to the Christ.
