We renounce all error thoughts that create a sense of separation from God, and all error judgments that create separation from each other.
Elimination or renounciation means releasing error thoughts of lack or separation and replacing them with the truth that we are Spiritual beings, eternally one with God, and that the Power of God is present within us now as abundance and perfect health. But our focus on elimination requires us to do more than simply release error thoughts that are making us uncomfortable, holding us in lack. We must also be aware of their effect on our community of faith.
Jesus told His disciples a parable about a servant who owed his master a large sum; when he could not pay it, his master forgave the debt. That same servant, however, was owed a very small sum by another servant. When that debt could not be repaid, he had the offending servant thrown in prison, at which point his master reinstated his large debt and sent him to prison.
How we relate to others is an essential part of our Spiritual process; it is not just a matter of an individual relation to God, but of a Spiritual relation to everyone else as well.
