Thy sins are forgiven thee

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!

    When I read that Jesus told the man with palsy that his sins were forgiven, I couldn’t help but think of how much critical judgment of sin is put forth in this world and very little in the way of constructive effort. One of the original definitions of sin is missing the mark or target. Who hasn’t made an attempt to do something, fallen short of getting it right, and then used the experience to learn and try again to do better to get it right? But in the face of critical judgment, one could get discouraged, and simply give up. God never gives up on anyone, Divine Love never gets disgusted and walks away. The requirement is to overcome sin, but this requirement would not come if it were impossible. Thank God for the clear truth that sin is not real and that we can realize this.
