"RESIST NOT EVIL"
What is the meaning of the saying, "Resist not evil?"
Nothing on earth can resist an absolutely nonresistant person. The Chinese say that water is the most powerful element, because it is perfectly non-resistant. It can wear away rock, and sweep all before it.
When Jesus said: "Resist not evil," he knew the Father to be All, and to be Good; he realized that all the power so-called evil had, was that which was given it by man. Not being a creation of God, it had no real life, no entity, but would affect a man's life so long as he believed in it, as a power. Seeing through evil, or the illusion, to the truth, he counseled non-resistance.
Religious Science recognizes the power of Mind to build according to the belief held in It. Therefore, following the advice of Jesus, it refuses to believe that evil has any reality of its own, but that its only claim to existence is that given it by the belief of man.
Evil is MAN-CREATED, while God, the Eternal Goodness, knows nothing about it. He is too pure to behold evil and cannot look upon it. Evil is the direct and suppositional opposite to good and has no reality behind it or actual law to come to its support. God tempts no man.
