Evil and disease—unreal?

From the January 1985 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Recently it was reported in our town that a clergyman had preached a sermon in which Christian Science was taken to task for what he called its "preposterous" teaching—the teaching that evil and disease are "unreal. " When a student of Christian Science heard the criticism, she thought that the clergyman's comment had missed much of the point of Christian Science teachings, but she also realized that there was nevertheless an essential truth stated when the clergyman referred to the unreality of evil and disease.
