It was reported that Christian Science "ignores the reality of evil," and that it denies "the atonement of Christ." An unbiased, careful perusal of the writings of the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, will reveal to the sincere seeker after Truth that Christian Science, while denying the reality of evil—sickness, sin, disease, and death—on the basis that God, good, created all that is true and real, does not "ignore" evil's claim to reality; neither does it deny "the atonement of Christ."

To material sense, evil, sickness, sin, disease, and mortality appear to mortals to exist and to be very real. The testimony of the five physical senses is, however, not to be relied upon. Christ Jesus, our Exemplar and Way-shower, referred to evil, "devil," as a lie. He declared, "He is a liar, and the father of it." Of a woman whom he healed, who had been bowed together for eighteen years, "and could in no wise lift up herself," Jesus said that Satan had bound her.
