Sin confers no pleasure

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!

    “…sin confers no pleasure, and this knowledge strengthens…moral courage and increases…ability to master evil and to love good.”

    I couldn’t help but think of an old Cole Porter song when I read this… “I get no kicks from champagne, etc….”
    So, I tweaked it to sing:
    I get no kick from guilt or shame
    Mere self-pity doesn’t thrill me at all
    So tell me why should it be true
    That I get a kick out of feeling blue (or any other error of your choice).
    Kinda puts everything in perspective. You can substitute any error in the lyrics, and it will give you the moral courage to master it.
