Facing the Facts

Facing the facts has in ordinary parlance come to mean something rather grim and unpleasant. It was not so with the first great facing of the facts, when "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Nor should it be so now. God is still the author of creation, and the facts of creation are still "very good."

If any element in a situation appears evil, and therefore not created by God, this appearance is quickly and completely dismissed by a steadfast facing of the facts as they really are. God is able to reveal and unfold harmoniously the spiritual facts necessary. He is never faced with having to extricate Himself or His creation from a situation imposed by some evil agency; there is no such agency.
