From the September 1885 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896:  Mis. 13:13-15:3

Scholastic Theology elaborates the proposition that evil is a factor of good, and to believe in the reality of evil is accessory to a rounded sense of the existence of good. This frail hypothesis is founded on the basis of material and mortal evidence, only what the senses confirm and human reason accepts.
