Impersonalizing evil

Perhaps you've tried to love people in spite of their faults and had the whole situation collapse on you. You may have felt guilty because you thought you were covering up their wrong actions in order to love them. Or you may have found that in your efforts to do good you put yourself in such an unprincipled position, you were vulnerable to being used or betrayed.

How can we love with integrity and at the same time be protected? We can as we gain the right sense of man in Christian Science. The only true concept is that God made him as the very expression of Himself, the idea of perfect divine Mind. We need to replace the false concept of man as a sinning mortal with the true.
