As A Corrective

At the Church of the Messiah February 26, Rev. Dr. A. B. Curtis spoke on "What is Christian Science?" His text was: "Ye shall serve the Lord your God, . . . and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee." Exodus 23: 25. He said among other things:—

"I desire above all things to speak fairly and sympathetically of this new science. I shall not use its technical terms, but I shall try to be true to its thought. I confess myself deeply in sympathy with it, especially as taught by some of its best known exponents. It has hold of some grand truths and is eagerly feeling its way toward others. It is a splendid antidote to the gross materialism and fleshly idealism of our own age. We need it as a corrective and it in turn on its side needs as its corrective the sympathetic and generous criticism which the outsider can give it. Every live religion covets such criticism profits by it. Let us, then, investigate it impartially.
