In Reply to Critics

Springfield (O.) Daily Press

Editor of the Springfield Daily Press:— Will you kindly permit me to reply to the remarks of Rev. S. O. Royal and Dr. C. W. Barnes made at the Urbana Camp Meeting as reported in your Sunday morning issue. It would appear that Christian Science is classed with Dowieism and Spiritualism. Had Christian Science been more carefully studied, these ministers would never have stated that it is allied to Dowieism, or that it is associated with Spiritualism. To thus class it shows a lack of understanding of the subject of Christian Science.

As in mathematics, so in Christian Science, one must understand, and the proof that one does understand Christian Science is that he can heal the sick in accord with its teachings, and unless this demonstration can be brought out at least in a small degree it cannot be intelligently discussed, and it would show greater wisdom to leave the subject untouched. When a course is pursued otherwise an exposure of ignorance is made.
