293 — WATCH lest you array yourself on the side of the enemy of God without realizing it, by becoming a “talebearer,” in that you repeat to others some of the errors that you hear in connection with students in Boston and elsewhere.
When some specific error was rampant in Boston, Mrs. Eddy found it necessary to write the following inspired and loving appeal to one of her students: “I want again to caution you against what human nature said, against letting it be known by anyone how things stand in Boston. Do not repeat the lies. Return good for evil. Never name what Nixon said about me to you. Let us forgive and love our enemies. This is our duty; this is the rule in Christian Science. Oh! let us keep it inviolate, and be on God’s side. Remember this, dear ones.”
