Uncovering Error

THE attention of a student of Christian Science was arrested by the following words of St. Paul found in his letter to the Galatians: "Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted." Consideration of these words brought to thought the subject of uncovering error, which is clearly of great importance in the task of destroying error of any kind. In Christian Science we learn that the uncovering of error is preliminary to its destruction.

What, then, is the purpose and motive of uncovering error? This question our Leader answers as follows on page 453 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "You uncover sin, not in order to injure, but in order to bless the corporeal man; and a right motive has its reward." These words make it clear that the only justification for uncovering a fault is a sincere desire to heal.
