LECTURE DELIVERED Peter B. Biggins, C. S. B., Holds Evil Shorn of Power When God Dominates Hind. A lecture on ‘'Christian Science: The Science of Divine Power” was de livered last evening m Memorial Continental Hall by Peter B. Biggins, C. S. B., of Seattle, Wash. Mr. Blggina is a member of the Board of Lecture ship of the Mother Church, the First Church of Christ, Scientist In Boston, Mass. He was lntrofpced by Mrs. Louise I. Naylor, former reader of Second Church, which sponsored this lecture. The lecturer said in part: "As we gain a better understanding of the power of truth, the power of spirit, the power of God, we shall give less and less power tr, evil. Chris tian Science has made a unique con trlbutlon to the cause of human better ment. It Is this. It has revealed In a practical manner the fact that God, good, Is all-pqwer. From this premise Christian Science goes on to show that the power which evil has seemed to hold over human thought and con duct 1s due. In belief, to the fact that mortals have given power to evil In their own thoughts. To the extent that you admit evil to be power, to that extent only does evil seem to have power over you. In the measure that you acknowledge God, infinite good, u power, in that measure good domi nates your thought, your conduct, your life. The Apostle Paul stated this truth when In writing to the Romans he said, 'Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedi ence unto righteousness?’ "Some people have mistakenly be lieved that because Christian Science exposes the powerlessness of evil, one can oontlnue to Indulge in evil, and »y that he la not eommlttlnc wrong. But thla la not ao. Such a practice would be self-deception of the worst kind, and It la foreign to Christian Science.” Hebrew Home Board to Heet.
