Ignorance versus Understanding

THE question is often asked by a beginner in Christian Science: Since God is the only creator, and man is His perfect creation, what is the cause of all our ills, and what is this evil power that is seeking to dominate our lives? This is a very practical question and worthy of our earnest consideration; but since nothing is gained by speculation, let us turn at once to God for our answer.

Surely no one wishes to be in bondage to limitation of any kind, whether mental or physical, and it is our desire to establish our liberty as the sons of God, that causes this vague unrest, this reaching out for better things. The Scriptures declare that "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all," and that "in thy light shall we see light;" hence it is very plain that only through the light of spiritual understanding can we hope to find the solution of the problems of existence.
