WISDOM AND FOOLISHNESS

From the October 1915 issue of The Christian Science Journal


THE remarkable discrepancy evident on the part of individuals and nations between their profession and practice of Christianity, indicates a profound ignorance of or indifference to the nature and demands of Christ's teachings, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the general attitude toward what is called evil. The great Teacher said of the devil, the supposed personification of evil, "There is no truth in him;" but some professed Christians of today, assuming to be wiser than their Master, argue that it is folly to denounce evil as a lie, not realizing that by believing it they are joining in the greatest folly of all the ages.
