Don’t Be Tricked

Today’s News&Culture update: The following links provide food for thought on this week’s topic of not letting what we see deceive us.

Keep in mind that these article links point out the problem, but don’t necessarily provide solutions. Together, you and I have been exploring ways that prayer and spirituality offer solutions to life’s problems, including viable answers to healthcare needs.

    Thanks for this blog. It reminds me of the importance of Mary Baker Eddy’s words “Christian Science practice begins with Christ’s keynote of harmony, ‘Be not afraid!'” And a little further she writes “Always begin your treatment by allaying the fear of patients.” (Science and Health, p. 410, 411) The Bible offers a very powerful thought — perfect love casts out fear — “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear:” (I John 4:18) So cultivating love through God, Love, does much to counter fear. There is so much that can be gained by studying the Bible and Science and Health and putting the ideas into practice.
