THE OVERCOMING OF ERROR

From the June 1910 issue of The Christian Science Journal


CAN evil be overcome with evil? Is it right to seek to overcome evil with evil? Is one ever justified in fighting the devil (evil) with his own weapons? Human beings seem to be confronted frequently by these questions, and while sometimes they recognize the true nature of the questions which they face, sometimes they do not. We would know better how to deal with such questions, if we understood them, and our ignorance certainly increases the seriousness of our problem.
