I think we shall all agree that the evils of earth, though mountains to mortals, have no weight in the sight of omnipotent God; and it is in this light that Christian Science declares the impotency of evil. It deals with sin by overcoming it, and this because there is nothing in it,—no profit, gain, or benefit; and, therefore, mortals must cease from it in order to be something, that is, be men.

If all mankind understood and applied the Christian Science teaching that an individual is a man only in proportion as he departs from evil, there would be no sin and no sinners. Men do wrong because they believe there is something in it, not because they believe there is nothing in it; and it is certain that the conduct of every man who reforms is in keeping with the doctrine that there is nothing in wrong, whether or not he be governed by a conscious adoption of such a theory.
