XXXI. Since God is All, there is no room for His
unlikeness. God, Spirit, alone created all, and called it
good. Therefore evil, being contrary to good,
is unreal, and cannot be the product of God.
A sinner can receive no encouragement from the fact that
Science demonstrates the unreality of evil, for the sinner
would make a reality of sin, - would make that real
which is unreal, and thus heap up "wrath against the
day of wrath." He is joining in a conspiracy against
himself, - against his own awakening to the awful unreality
by which he has been deceived. Only those, who
repent of sin and forsake the unreal, can fully understand
the unreality of evil.
