UNREALITY OF EVIL

From the May 1925 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IT would seem quite impossible for an intelligent person, free to do his own thinking, to rest content in believing that an infinitely wise, infinitely good and omnipotent God either created or permitted a rival power to set up a reign of evil within His kingdom of infinite good. So illogical is this theory of two rival kingdoms, sovereignty within sovereignty, that human ingenuity has been exceedingly busy trying to devise some plausible explanation which should not conflict either with the omnipotence and all-presence of God, who is infinite good, or with the cherished beliefs of mortals in the reality of evil.
