Our critic says, "We do not dispute for a minute as to the healings that Christian Science claims, because if the devil can oppress he can lift the oppression." Healings are undeniably good. According to Scripture: "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." Either the Bible, therefore, is not true, or the quotation from our critic is not true. Jesus asked, "Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?"

Our critic further says, "We admit that God did not create the devil, but He did make an angel that made a devil out of himself." The Bible teaches that God made everything, and "saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Is there anything in good out of which evil could be made? God is wholly good. Habakkuk says: "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity," hence God could not have made a devil nor anything out of which a devil could be made.
