In Defence of Christian Science

Valley Mirror

At a recent public meeting, where people attend for the purpose of worship and to preach the gospel of Christ, we were not a little but a great deal surprised to hear from the lips of one of the exhorters words of deep condemnation of the doctrine of Christian Science and statements concerning it that only a person lacking in information about the' subject he was discussing (we would not impute intentional misrepresentation) could have made.

We make no pretence of being versed in the doctrines promulgated by Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, other than that gleaned from the incidental reading matter that comes to the hand of any one who reads on the general subjects that are more or less prominently before the people, and by the ordinary observation of the character and lives of the people who have adopted Mrs. Eddy's teachings; but from this little knowledge we do know that there can be no real Christianity without the divine Love taught by the Christian Scientists.
