LOVE AND LIGHT

Perhaps no part of the message of Christian Science is more misunderstood than is its teaching concerning the unreality of evil. This is particularly the case in the criticisms made by those of the so-called orthodox churches, yet it is in the same Scriptures which are loved and studied by all Christian denominations that the students of Christian Science find full and complete foundation for all that Mrs. Eddy teaches on this point.

If all things are of and from God, if "in him we live, and move, and have our being," it follows that when we recognize evil of any sort as a reality, and give it power, we are imputing evil to a creator whom Jesus and his disciples, including Paul, declared to be an ever-present perfect Father. We have the key to the problem when we grasp the great truth that the only reality and power evil can have in our daily life is that which mortal sense gives it by its own erroneous thinking. John declared that the message of Christ Jesus was, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all;" and when we have learned that there is no occasion of stumbling to the real man, who by reflecting Love walks in this light, we have learned how to keep evil from blocking our path or barring our access to ever-present good.
