In the fourth of the series, "What I Believe," the writer, in referring to evil, says, "I can see no attraction in the proposal of Christian Science to pretend that it is not there," et cetera. Christian Science has no such proposal or pretense. To free ourselves and others from the thought that evil is present, requires a correct understanding of the nature of God, of man as God's manifestation, and of God's divine laws.

Christian Science has given men a religion by which they can scientifically rebuke, resist, and overcome evil in their individual experience. Devotion of thought to the understanding of God's omnipotence, in spite of appearances to the contrary, is not pretense, but true prayer. Mary Baker Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 113), "Christian Science shows that there is a way of escape from the latter-day ultimatum of evil, through scientific truth; so that all are without excuse."
