If my assertion that "the coming of good into consciousness accentuates the qualities of evil by comparison" were to be paraphrased so as to read, "the coming of intelligence into consciousness accentuates the qualities of ignorance by comparison," the fact that ignorance is merely negative, the absence or lack of intelligence, nothing, would not thereby be challenged. Every educational endeavor in the world is maintained in face of the admitted nothingness of that which it aims to destroy, namely ignorance, which exists only as a lack.
The educator applies to those who are willing to be rid of ignorance certain positive rules of intelligence, and the student, in proportion to his receptivity, comes out from under the so-called law of mental lack or ignorance; a radical change has taken place, though nothing truly real or eternal has been destroyed. The Christian Scientist applies to the conditions of evil which affect his pupil, or patient, certain positive rules of truth, and in proportion to the understanding of the rules and the receptivity of the pupil sin and disease are destroyed.
Christian Science healing results from the demonstrable understanding that all evil, sickness and sin inclusive, is in its final analysis negative. Any one who will may prove this in his individual experiences. Those who cling to the ancient superstition that evil of any sort is a part of the divine plan, are confronted with the necessity of some day trying to explain, to themselves at least, wherein they are justified in endeavoring to upset the plans of divinity by resorting to any means for the overcoming of evil.
