Error is the coward that runs

January 25, 2022 | 16 comments

With all the fears swirling through public consciousness about the pandemic, contagion, and evolving variants, there may be a temptation to participate in that fear and become victimized by it. The wiser route is to stand strong with Truth, to understand God’s power and presence that neutralizes germs and, in turn, keeps you healthy and well.

Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “The confidence inspired by Science lies in the fact that Truth is real and error is unreal. Error is a coward before Truth” (Science and Health, p. 368:2–5). When you stand strong with Truth, error tucks its tail and runs.

Truth is what enables you to master fear and its effects. Truth is not the coward. Error is! Stand with Truth and triumph over error.

  1. Thank you Evan. Staying on top with the Truth of being, the final trump will end this error of belief.

    “Treat a belief in sickness as you would sin with sudden dismissal. Resist the temptation to believe in matter as intelligent, having sensation or power.”

    Matter has no intelligence. Animal magnetism has no power. Just keep that close every time the subject presents itself.

    We can have but one Mind, if that one is infinite. We bury the sense of infinitude, when we admit that, although God is infinite. evil has a place in this infinity, for evil can have no place, where all space is filled with God.

    Lovingkindness for this Morning.

  2. Beautiful Cheryl Anne❣️
    Starting the day with loving kindness is the best.
    Letting it permeate throughout our day blesses all.
    Evan and David set the tone and activate our strength.
    I love SpiritView

    1. Josef your comment made me smile.. it’s like trying to build a house with a tape measure that is not accurate..

  3. I just love the two penguins, looking as if they are standing erect with Truth. What you say about
    God’s presence and power neutralising germs, Evan, made me look up the word “germ”, and a very
    good examples came up along with the counterfacts of that word:-

    “he had the germ of a brilliant idea: start, beginning(s), commencement, starting point, genesis, inception, seed, embryo, bud, root, rudiment, origin, source, fountain, potential (for); core, nucleus, heart, kernel, nub, essence; Latin fons et origo; literary fountainhead, wellspring, fount.

    I found these helpful thoughts. Also, error is a coward before truth because when we think of germs in this way and apply it, we can better understand what is really going on in God’s kingdom. When we do, the lies of material sense that would present us with destructive kind of germs, have to disappear as a coward before the spiritual germs, because we no longer believe in their reality, and they have nothing to cling onto.

  4. Thank you very much Evan and David!! I have seen evidence of Truth unfolding in my experience very particularly the last few weeks. God’s law of Truth and Adjustment certainly trumps any misconception of human law. Love to all!

    1. Again, a big “thank you” to Evan for this wonderful post and to Angie who provides an article which enlarges, illumines, extends, and clarifies the main idea of Evan’s post.

  5. MBE also reminds us on p; 466:15 “Moreover, Truth is real, and error is unreal. This last
    statement contains the point you will most reluctantly admit, although first and last, it
    is the most important to understand.” I’m always so grateful for her guidance and
    encouragement when I’m thinking, “C.S. is just too hard for me to demonstrate.”
