Scientific Forgiveness

"FORGIVE and forget" has long been considered a gracious way of establishing peace after some misunderstanding; but Christian Scientists are gaining a sense of love far outweighing a concept of forgiveness which would claim to forget while continuing to believe in a past evil as having been real.

When a student of Christian Science is faced with injustice, dishonesty, or ingratitude, he must refuse to accept the suggestion of the adversary, mortal mind, that he believes in or is a witness to any evil. And in proportion to his cognizance of and consent to the reality of good alone will his attitude of tolerance and compassion be stabilized, so that Truth will destroy the belief that he has ever been injured, or that there ever was an injurer. This effort to reflect divine Love will bless both the student and the one who may have been regarded as an enemy. This is scientific forgiveness.
