HOLDING CRIME IN CHECK

With some evident understanding of the so-called carnal or mortal mind and the limits to which it may go in evil activity, the prophet Jeremiah wrote (17:9), "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" But he added, "I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings." As Christian Scientists we recognize that we are living in a period of great moral chemicalization. The leaven of the Christ, Truth, as revealed to Mary Baker Eddy is acting upon false material belief. To human sense it appears in one's experience as a process of cleansing and purification.

In this process of change, in which all error must give way to Truth, the false claim of mind and existence as material is being stirred to its depths. The light of Truth is forcing latent evil to the surface in order that it may be seen for the lie it truly is and destroyed, even as we read in Luke's Gospel (12:2, 3): "There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops."
