CHRISTIAN THEISM – 1
Scholastic Theology elaborates the proposition that evil is a factor of good, and to believe in the reality of evil is accessory to a rounded sense of the existence of good.
This frail hypothesis is founded on the basis of material and mortal evidence, only what the senses confirm and human reason accepts. The science of Soul reverses this proposition, overturns the testimony of the five erring senses, and reveals in clearer divinity the existence only of good, that is God, and his idea. This postulate of divine science needs only to be conceded to afford opportunity for proof of its correctness, and the clearer discernment of good.
