A Strong Defense

Christian Scientists rejoice in the omnipotence and omnipresence of God as infinite Mind, divine Love. They feel a deep sense of gratitude to their Leader for having revealed the true nature of God, the glory and majesty of Spirit. They very rightfully seek to reflect the intelligence, wisdom, and might which, they know, are man's God-given heritage.

Thoughtful students, however, realize that to human sense evil seems to have power and presence, and that against this seeming power and presence of evil they need a strong defense. Recognizing this need, Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 234, 235), "Evil thoughts, lusts, and malicious purposes cannot go forth, like wandering pollen, from one human mind to another, finding unsuspected lodgment, if virtue and truth build a strong defence."
