Resisting Evil

We have the Scriptural command, "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you," and the blessed promise, "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you." And Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, also emphasizes this treatment of error on page 406 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," where she says, "Resist evil—error of every sort—and it will flee from you."

In the endeavor to be obedient to this command one knows that the work of resisting evil beliefs and suggestions must take place in his own thinking, since that is where evil would tempt one to yield to the arguments of fear, discouragement, depression, and so on. Our dear Leader writes on page 555 of Science and Health, "Error would have itself received as mind, as if it were as real and God-created as truth."
