Christian Scientists and Counterfeits

The Grand Rapids Herald

The man who beats the big bass drum is the "head leader" of the band, in the estimation of every boy, because he makes the most noise.

Persons who do not know enough about Christian Science to discriminate, usually hit upon the noisiest partisans and imagine that they are "head leaders," justly typical of the entire body of Christian Scientists. Concerning this, J. B. Willis, in an article published in the Christian Science Sentinel, says, "The metaphysics of Science and its unusual words and phraseologies furnish peculiar temptations to those who treat the transcendent as a lightsome thing, while its wake is likely to form an inviting retreat for the flotsam of a religious tide. Unable, as yet, to apprehend or fittingly represent Science thought, these, nevertheless, will be most frequently noted by objectors as its exponents, the product of its influence, and to bear with them and the criticism and misjudgment of the cause which they inevitably beget, supplies a severe test of that patient self-command which has been so wondrously disclosed in the life of the Founder of Christian Science."
