“Neither sympathy nor society should ever tempt us to cherish error in any form, and certainly we should not be error’s advocate.” (Science and Health, page 153)
No disease or disturbing belief about man and about life should be allowed a place of honor and attention. We should be sympathetic with individuals who may suffer, should show them compassion and tenderness and understanding, but, at no time should we “sympathize” with the error itself, no matter how pervasive seems the disease or how frightening its name.
We are God’s representatives. We speak for and express the Truth, the Life, and the Love that casts out these falsities, that praises God’s presence and lives it for all to see and to rejoice in. We should not cherish in thought, keep a vigil with and give abiding attention to, that which is not good, right, and desirable. We must always be an advocate for Truth, keeping that which is God’s law in thought as we defend ourselves and all from the accusations that have no basis and that depress hope.
No matter how aggressive a sickness or error may seem to be, we should never find justification for it, pity over it, or attribute it to a source, a beginning, a reason, and an eventual prognosis. Error is never real. There are no exceptions. The law always supports harmony, immortal life, God’s purpose and design upheld.
Let us be wise to the temptation to get too close to a problem, whether it be one we observe in the world or in our own bodies and lives. We have the healing Truth at hand to cherish and utilize. Making the lie comfortable will never make us more comfortable. Stay on the right side, on your own side, on God’s side, and win!
