Weekly Bible Lesson
Golden Text: “…the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent.” (I Kings 5:4) and from the Responsive Reading: “But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day;…I will go in the strength of the Lord God.” (Ps 71:14-16)
From Section 1: “For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord…The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.” (Ps 33:4-5, 10) and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: ” The foundation of evil is laid on a belief in something besides God. This belief tends to support two opposite powers, instead of urging the claims of Truth alone.” (SH 92:26-29) “Adversary. An adversary is one who opposes, denies, disputes, not one who constructs and sustains reality and Truth.” (SH 580:28-30)
From Section 2: “Devil. Evil; a lie; error; neither corporeality nor mind; the opposite of Truth; a belief in sin, sickness, and death; animal magnetism or hypnotism;” (SH 584:17-19 (to 2nd ;))
From Section 3: “…who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?” (I Pet 3:13 who) “At all times and under all circumstances, overcome evil with good. Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil. Clad in the panoply of Love, human hatred cannot reach you.” (SH 571:15-19)
