To suppose that Christian Science is "indifferent to everything," or to anything of consequence, for that matter, is a great mistake. Christian Scientists are not indifferent to the good, the beautiful, or the inspiring; rather they accept Paul's counsel and "think on these things." As such ideals are dwelt upon in thought and followed in action, they are gradually discerned to be the real and permanent things of life, while their opposites are seen to be the mistaken human concepts of reality.

Nor are Christian Scientists indifferent to the evil and suffering which seem to occupy so large a place in human experience. On the contrary, they are grappling with these disturbing forces and overthrowing them, so that in countless instances sickness has been displaced by health, sin and wrongdoing by righteousness, and sorrow by happiness and joy. "The Christian Scientist," as Mrs. Eddy says (Science and Health, p. 450), "has enlisted to lessen evil, disease, and death; and he will overcome them by understanding their nothingness and the allness of God, or good."
