Origin

Mortal mind is ever trying to induce the Christian Scientist to explain or account for the origin of evil, or what seems to make a claim of evil. The error that would try to have us account for the origin of evil, will be found at some time and in some way suggesting to us a question as to the origin of good. Mortal mind being finite cannot conceive of Infinity, or of existence without beginning.

The moment we endeavor to explain the origin of evil we give it a beginning, and hence make it real to us. Believing in the reality of evil, we must believe that good is limited. If good as well as evil is limited, they must have had a beginning, and therefore there must have been a time when neither existed.
