Helping Others Overcome Sin

To be able to free ourselves and others of pain, fear, and disease through our understanding of Christian Science is reason for the greatest rejoicing. However, if we are to advance, there must come a time when we accept the responsibility for demonstrating the deeper purpose of this Science—the healing of sin.

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, reminds us: "The mission of Christian Science now, as in the time of its earlier demonstration, is not primarily one of physical healing. Now, as then, signs and wonders are wrought in the metaphysical healing of physical disease; but these signs are only to demonstrate its divine origin,—to attest the reality of the higher mission of the Christ-power to take away the sins of the world." Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 150; What is "the Christ-power" that destroys sin? In Hebrews we read of Christ Jesus, "Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." Heb. 1:9; The Christ-power was inseparable from Jesus' love of everything good and right and his thorough hatred of all that is evil and debased. To heal sin we must do more than just love good, we must hate evil—hate it in Jesus' way by utterly rejecting it, reducing it to nothing. The Christ, which Jesus so gloriously manifested, has no tolerance for evil. Its blazing white light of purity and goodness invariably exposes evil for what it is and then eliminates it from thought and experience.
