Thwarting the Adversary

One can approach the problem of evil victoriously only in the conviction that the government of the universe is reasonable and kindly. Appearances may point a different conclusion. To the human mind the universe may seem a house divided between good and evil. But logic and revelation unite in pronouncing goodness supreme and all-pervasive. This is the only rational foundation for a permanent order; the only safe hypothesis from which to shape one's course. Browning is at his best when he observes:

There shall never be one lost good! Whatwas, shall live as before;The evil is null, is naught, is silence implyingsound;What was good shall be good, with forevil so much good more;On the earth the broken arc; in the heaventhe perfect round.
