QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT CHRISTIAN SCIENCE
In this continuing series, we share questions and answers that have come up recently—in one-to-one conversations, in discussion groups, and through correspondence with people who want to know what Christian Science is and what it's like to be a student of Christian Science. Of course, the responses given here are not presented as final or definitive. Nor are they the only way any particular inquiry might be responded to. But they do come out of actual exchanges between Christian Scientists and their neighbors.
A listener to our Church's religious broadcasts over shortwave radio wrote to ask what Christian Science teaches about evil. He concluded correctly that some of the language Christian Scientists use to describe evil must have a somewhat different meaning from its everyday usage.
Q: On one of your religious broadcasts, a commentator said that "evil is not real; it is only a delusion." Now, if evil is only a delusion, why bother trying to remedy it? If Hitler's aggression was only a mental delusion, why did the United States enter the war? Obviously you mean something different when you use the word delusion. What is it that you mean?
