From the September 1941 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The Scriptural proclamation in the first chapter of Genesis, "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good," simply and clearly presents the truth of creation—God, good, having no unlikeness, and everywhere expressed. Christian Science accepts this view of creation in its entirety and without equivocation, although it is the one most remote from common acceptance, for men are inclined to the belief that God knows and permits evil, that the universe including man is a combination of matter and Spirit, and that harmony and inharmony are equally real.
