Forbearance

The tendency to believe that evil is real is responsible for needless unhappiness and suffering in the experience of mortals. On the other hand, the truths of Christian Science awaken in us a recognition of the law of God, whereby beliefs of discord and strife are overcome and genuine love and forbearance are demonstrated.

One of the modes of evil is to mislead the victim of injustice into the acceptance of a state of thought which is in itself as erroneous as the offending injustice. This erroneous state definitely interferes, while it lasts, with the individual's perception of the Christ, Truth, which is alone capable of healing, protecting, and saving him. When a wrong is responded to with thoughts of resentment, bitterness, revenge, envy, jealousy, or hatred, the individual entertaining such erroneous thinking is accepting that which, in belief, gives the injustice the only power to harm which it may seem to have.
