The real exposure

Healing of sin involves much more than simply personal efforts to expose evil.

Mulling over the misdeeds of someone else one day, I was brought up short by a statement in Miscellaneous Writings by Mrs. Eddy. She writes, "We must love our enemies in all the manifestations wherein and whereby we love our friends; must even try not to expose their faults, but to do them good whenever opportunity occurs" (p. 11).

Not expose their faults? I could understand loving another in spite of what I might see as shortcomings. But wasn't exposure of evil necessary? Besides, overlooking other's faults that were harming me seemed rather spineless. Giving someone a piece of my mind seemed more in order.
