“Ever since the foundation of the world, ever since error would establish material belief, evil has tried to slay the Lamb; but Science is able to destroy this lie, called evil.” (Science and Health, page 568)
The Lamb, that sweet message of purity, innocence, promise, renewal, is constantly under attack. That which would uplift humanity to a true awareness of God, of that divine inheritance of freedom, seems to be drowned out by the noise of mortal minds, of a belief in egos that must have power, of matter that must have life, of that which makes the simple complicated.
Christian Science is able to destroy this evil by revealing its powerlessness. The Lamb, that which is the pure idea held in the Shepherd’s safe embrace, can’t be slain for it dwells in God, Who is Omnipotent Life. The truth about God and man can’t be assailed or ended, despite the world’s attempts to hide it. Material beliefs would seem to empower shrewdness over wisdom, ambition over humility, competition over oneness, and need over abundance.
But, the Truth protects this innocent Lamb even when it seems to be constantly barraged with accusations and limitations. That gentle idea of Soul’s anointing, has the power of God within it, and it must emerge unharmed and victorious. Let’s not allow the world’s lies to slay our lamb, to turn our sweetness into bitterness or our exuberance into complacency or resignation. Let’s yield to our own innocence and let the Shepherd lead us home to peace, power, and joy!
