THE MYTH OF ERROR'S TENACITY

Christ Jesus, our Way-shower, once called to him a woman who had suffered from "a spirit of infirmity eighteen years" (Luke 13:11). She was bent over in a fixed position and could not straighten up. Telling the woman that she was free from her infirmity, Jesus healed her. In this and other experiences, the Master proved the tenacity of error or evil to be a myth.

To mortal sense, sickness, sin, poverty, evil habits, often seem to enslave an individual. We sometimes hear it said, "I cannot shake off this cold," or, "I cannot get these evil thoughts out of my mind," or, "I cannot do anything about this condition; it just hangs on." Yet in Christian Science we learn that evil or error in whatever form is without power or existence. How can that which has no reality, no origin, fasten itself to the individual? It cannot. Since evil is nothing, it has no intelligence or form and has no ability to take hold of anything. Therefore evil has no tenacity. Only the false belief that sin, sickness, or any discord is real seems to give it tenacity.
