Maintaining Superiority to Error

TODAY there is thrust upon the attention of mankind the spectacle of the greatest struggle for material superiority and power ever waged in this world. Men, money, and human ingenuity are being utilized to the utmost, in order that supremacy over what is termed the enemy may be achieved and the conflict ended. The children of men have a right to look for the end of human warfare, and to envision the day when universal peace shall bless all nations and all peoples, for the Scriptures definitely declare that "as the waters cover the sea," so shall the knowledge of God, His glory, dominion, power, and peace, fill the whole earth.

The experience of mortals presents another, seemingly agelong, struggle for superiority over what have been erroneously termed inevitable evils. These evils—sin, sickness, and death—are considered by a majority of mankind to be stern realities, and by a large number of individuals they are believed to have deific sanction. In the human struggle for victory over evil, it is comforting and encouraging to know that a loving God, wholly good, never made evil, and does not sanction it in any way. The prophet Habakkuk has written: "Art thou not from everlasting, O Lord my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die. . . . Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity."
