Sent Forth from God

"If God does not know evil," asked a young boy in a Christian Science Sunday School, "how did He know that the world needed saving when He sent Jesus to save the world?" In pondering this thoughtful query, the boy's teacher realized that it was more than an academic, theological question relating to the past, it touches on a point as vital today as in the time of Jesus, a point which is involved in every demonstration of the healing truth as taught in Christian Science.

"Does God know evil or material existence?" one suffering from a belief in sin or sickness may ask himself. "Does God see my plight? Does He send the Christ, Truth, to save me?"

One of the fundamental points in the teaching of Christian Science is that God is infinite, All, and that He is altogether good. The allness of God carries with it as a necessary correlative the nothingness of evil. "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." Gen. 1:31; Since God is infinite good, He creates nothing but good, knows nothing but good, sees nothing but good.
