Speaking the truth

When Christian Scientists speak of evil as nothing, they are reasoning from a spiritual viewpoint. In Science and Health, the textbook of Christian Science, Mrs. Eddy states, "God, good, being ever present, it follows in divine logic that evil, the suppositional opposite of good, is never present." Science and Health, p. 72.

Does this mean that students of this Science ignore the belief of evil? No, indeed. Evil is seen as error, a mistake concerning the nature of God and of His idea, man. Educated to think that God includes or allows evil, individuals are liable to feel vulnerable to a supposed destructive power they believe God condones, such as evil thought, criminal attack, disease, accident, death.
