Your part in preventing crime

Don't be an accomplice to tax evasion.

I Know I can't play ostrich and bury my head in the sand, pretending all the things spewing out of the television newscasts are not going on. They cannot be ignored, but rather need to be healed.

This led me to ponder two statements in Science and Health, the textbook of Christian Science. One point states flat out that "... those who discern Christian Science will hold crime in check. They will aid in the ejection of error" (p. 97). The other one is just as definitive: "Who is telling mankind of the foe in ambush? Is the informer one who sees the foe? If so, listen and be wise. Escape from evil, and designate those as unfaithful stewards who have seen the danger and yet have given no warning" (p. 571).

I didn't want to be one of the "unfaithful stewards," yet I wasn't quite sure how to go about being obedient to these directives. Then I found this statement: "At all times and under all circumstances, overcome evil with good. Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil" (ibid.).
