Evil: "no portion, nor right, nor memorial"

From the March 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The biblical story of Nehemiah rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem is a useful case history for anyone wishing to better understand the Christly way to deal with evil suggestions—with whatever would abort, hinder, divert, discourage, or defeat any good work. When Nehemiah first heard about the broken walls and burned gates of Jerusalem, he was deeply distressed and prayed for God's guidance.
