Facing Error Unafraid
After Elijah's vindication at Mount Carmel, when the prophets of Baal were unable to give a sign of divine power, Jezebel, an idol worshiper and supporter of the prophets of Baal, made a vow against the life of Elijah and informed him of it. Elijah then fled into the wilderness and, accepting momentarily the mesmeric suggestion of discouragement, "he requested for himself that he might die," for, said he, "It is enough."
Are we today giving power to the harassments of mortal mind and perhaps echoing Elijah's lament, "It is enough"? Have we journeyed so far into the wilderness of self-pity, weariness, fear, loss, adversity, sickness, sin, grief, discouragement, that we seem to be at our very extremity? Like Elijah, have we run away from it all, seeking some material means of escape?
If so, we have soon found in our study of Science that a bad situation is nullified not by running away from it, but by facing and correcting it with the scientific truth about it. A problem which is evaded is an unsolved problem. Always sufficient for any untoward circumstance is the power of Truth, and the time to use it is now. Clad in Truth's armor, and with our duty as right thinkers always before us, we can know and prove that Christian Science and divine Love are at all times on our side. With these we are certain victors; and we have the reassuring words of Mary Baker Eddy in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 412), "The power of Christian Science and divine Love is omnipotent."
