"FLEE FROM IDOLATRY"

From the February 1916 issue of The Christian Science Journal


AN ever recurring problem with thoughtful men and women, and one seemingly not easy of solution, is the question, Can the evils now going on in the world, with their indescribable presentments of horror and misery, rightfully be ascribed to God?
