CHURCH AT CINCINNATI

Cincinnati Commercial Tribune

Several hundred gathered October 23, at the Auditorium, Odd Fellows Temple, to listen to the presentation of the doctrine of "everlasting punishment," which was the theme of the morning sermon, as taught in the Scriptures and interpreted in the text-book, Science and Health.

Christian Science claims that a radical change is gaining ground with regard to the stereotyped teachings of the doctrine of future punishment, under the rays of full-orbed truth as now revealed. Sin must be punished; sin punishes itself and excludes itself from harmony; without punishment sin would increase and men would be annihilated in a common ruin; hence the eternal justice of the heaven-ordained law, "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." This is the law of harmony. "With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again," said our master, Christ. In order to ascend in the scale of being proper restitution is required of mortals. The very suffering we so much dread is often the way of progress. Suffering will only cease when sin ceases. Christian Science teaches that "sin makes its own hell and goodness its own heaven."
