Food For Thought

I'll be brave today and post these radical statements by Mary Baker Eddy. Error or evil takes many forms. It can present as sickness, lack or any type of inharmony. It can sometimes disguise itself with cloaks of "good". We are living in the time where Love and staunchness of faith are critical to embrace. Here are some powerful statements from Mary Baker Eddy.

"Hold on and persist for good, because there never is a hopeless situation. When error(evil) meets with resistance, it begins to be scattered. Where a situation seems unbearable, it is because error is letting go. We must go ahead of error, and keep ahead of error all the way. Error is nothing but erroneous thought, and we must never give in to it. Mental activity must be tranquil - not lazy; it must express force;be exact, and it must know the reality of man's oneness with God, and the utter unreality of evil in all it's forms of beliefs."

An evil-doer is losing his own selfhood; he is becoming a nonentity, harming himself more than he can harm any other person. What then is success in evil? It is downright defeat. The greater it's success the surer its defeat. Error is self destroyed.


  1. Thanks very much for posting these truths. This morning I listened to the second hour of the Dr. Pete Peterson/Project Camelot interview. It struck me that what he was saying about disease and the healing of disease was completely on point with what Mrs. Eddy had been saying all along and was consonant with the Christian Science teaching I had received earlier in my lifetime. It is especially clear in the first third or so of the interview. Immediately after finishing that interview, I read your posts quoting MBE. Oh, my! How incredibly synchronous, and they were exactly what I needed to know at the time, not to mention a nod from the universe that my thinking was on the right track. Thank you so much for posting as you did this morning!!

  2. I'm so glad you found it helpful. I was going to post about chemicalization or fermentation a week or so ago but for some reason today seemed like a better time. In HIM(God,good) we live and move and have our being.Just that simple statement covers all we need to know. Thankyou for sharing your thoughts...and God Bless
