Innocence— weakness or strength?

In our world today we often hear of cases where the innocent suffer. They seem to be victims of circumstance. In many instances children are innocent victims of crime. It's obvious that there's need for a better method of protection, a better way of defending the innocent from imposition, from the wolves in our society.

We need never concede that we're helpless before evil. The whole thrust of the Bible is the overcoming of evil with good. Christ Jesus was pictured as the Lamb of God, the representative of true innocence. And yet he overcame the world, the flesh, and the devil. Discussing the overcoming of evil portrayed in the Apocalypse, Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health: "The beast and the false prophets are lust and hypocrisy. These wolves in sheep's clothing are detected and killed by innocence, the Lamb of Love." Science and Health, p. 567. How is this practical in our experience today?
