God Knows Not Evil

[Original article in German]

In the first chapter of Habakkuk the prophet writes of God, "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil." In consonance with this passage our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 243), "Truth has no consciousness of error." This must mean that God has no knowledge of evil.

When light is directed towards an object, a shadow forms behind it. Yet we may say that the light never sees the shadow, for as soon as the object is removed, the shadow is there no more. The light has no knowledge of darkness; for in the light, darkness does not exist.
