All Churches Should Heal

Denver Republican

It is not the ambition of the Leader of the Christian Science movement to build up a powerful denomination of her own and pull down other denominations. Her desire is that all people who have adopted the name Christian, shall be filled with the loving spirit of the Master, having that Mind which was also in Christ Jesus. She is eager for the coming of that time which she years ago predicted, when every Christian Church in the land will heal the sick in the name of Christ.

Christian Scientists are human and sometimes speak with pride of their own church and the achievements wrought under its Leader's guidance, but that is not the feeling of Rev. Mary Baker Eddy or her followers as a rule. All of them must rejoice at the seeming readiness of earth's weary inhabitants to now receive the Truth into their hearts and express it in their lives, as is indicated by the great throngs that gather in Christian Science churches to merely hear the Bible and "Science and Health" read. But this rejoicing is without malice toward sister churches.

Christian Science is just the primitive Christianity which in times passed endowed its conscientious followers with the spirit of divine Love which heals the sick as well as the sinner. It is primitive Christianity reinstated.
