Freeing versus Binding

The true Christian Scientist's love for others prohibits him from binding them to faults or from prophesying that faults will bring about an illness or some other wrong condition. We are to lift the burdens of sinful and discordant beliefs from men's shoulders rather than build them up in thought, either in our own or another's. Scriptural instruction on this point is clear, "Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?" Isa. 58:6;

Practicing Christian Science means giving the lie to evil in every form and upholding what is spiritually true of man. It is scientific to recognize that the inevitable spiritual education of thought, under the all-embracing regimen of Christ, Truth, will replace the hideous beliefs that bind human beings to trouble.
