Study the Platform XXXI of XXXII

Hi, this is Marsha from Loveheals.us
Come study the platform with me from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy in the chapter called Science of Being, page 330. We’ll take one part of the platform each week for the next 32 weeks. We’ll read the words Mrs. Eddy has given us. Then, I’ll share with you some ideas that have come to me and then you get to share your ideas in the blog online in the comment area below.
If you know anyone who might like to participate in this exercise, please forward this to them to have them subscribe to my website.
If you miss some, you can catch up by going to the menu at the top
called “Study the Platform“.

XXXI. (Evil not produced by God) Since God is All, there is no room for His unlikeness. God, Spirit, alone created all, and called it good. Therefore evil, being contrary to good, is unreal, and cannot be the product of God. A sinner can receive no encouragement from the fact that Science demonstrates the unreality of evil, for the sinner would make a reality of sin, — would make that real which is unreal, and thus heap up “wrath against the day of wrath.” He is joining in a conspiracy against himself, — against his own awakening to the awful unreality by which he has been deceived. Only those, who repent of sin and forsake the unreal, can fully understand the unreality of evil.  S&H 339: 9

Marsha:  This platform continues to address the concept of sin we spoke about in the last platform.  The sin or evil animal magnetism that tries to take form if we don’t correct the mistaken belief, is not made by God, so not known by God, because it is not real.
“Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 4: 17. And so, what does the word ‘repent’ mean?  It means to change and correct thought to see things the way God knows them.
We must do this to understand that evil is unreal.
