The Christian Science Monitor
Bible history since the time of Cain and Abel presents an account of continuous conflict between a human sense of good and evil. At one time evil appears to predominate, at another good rises victorious; yet, as viewed from the standpoint of Christian Science, evil has no real existence, and as Paul declared, "All things work together for good to them that love God."
Among the Old Testament patriarchs from Noah to David we find many splendid examples of instinctive goodness; without any particular form of religion to guide them, these men seem to have seized the right idea and expressed it naturally. They were not altogether perfect, but they expressed perfection in a marked degree. They certainly demonstrated the power of good over evil in the main and they established valuable precedents for their successors to ponder and emulate. Furthermore, among the prophets of Israel we find many courageous men who unflinchingly held up the standard of Truth and justice and fearlessly rebuked evil in every form. These spiritual seers, in their day and generation, set standards of right living and left records of right thinking which are even to-day among the recognized classics of modern ethics and religion.
Jesus of Nazareth, as the human exponent of perfect manhood, has left us the best example of militant righteousness to be found in all history. Although Jesus himself declared that even greater works than he did could be done through an understanding of his word, still the fact remains that since the days of the early Christians and until the dawn of Christian Science, few even believed that the practices of Jesus were intended to apply beyond the time of his immediate ministry.
