GOD IS GOOD

Every beginner in Christian Science knows how difficult it seems at first to answer the apparently puzzling questions which our acquaintances who have not studied this wonderful Science put to us, so I will relate one of my own experiences in this line, with the hope that it may help some one else.

On my making the positive assertion that God is good, and only good, a friend said he could not see how that was true in every case and at all times, and he put the following question to me: " Two little boys of the same age climb an apple-tree for the purpose of stealing the apples, and both fall down; one is badly hurt, and the other has no injury befall him. Now, if God is good and just, why should one be hurt and not the other ; or why, in fact, should either one be hurt?" At the time, I could not give a satisfactory answer, but I insisted that God is good and that He does not cause evil. With the enlarged understanding which has come to me through the study of Christian Science, I now find the answer perfectly clear.
