So insistent is the world's belief in evil that the possibility of illness and harm is constantly held before us. Fear of evil, particularly of disease, is supposed to be preferable to ignorance. But something more dependable than fear or ignorance is needed if we are to dwell safely and securely. What we need is an understanding of what constitutes our protection from evil, our immunity from it.

The assurance of this protection is set forth in the ninety-first Psalm, the first verse of which reads, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

Christian Science teaches that God is good, not merely a good God, but good itself, infinite good. Mrs. Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, writes in "Pulpit and Press" (p. 6): "Good, the Anglo-Saxon term for God, unites Science to Christianity. It presents to the understanding, not matter, but Mind; not the deified drug, but the goodness of God— healing and saving mankind."
