Christian Science versus the Devil

Macon (Ga.) News

To the Editor of the Macon Evening News.

In your Monday's paper you published in part a sermon by the Rev. S. R. Maxwell, the pastor of the Christian Church, on "Does the Devil Exist?" In your report of this sermon there are a number of references to Christian Science and its teachings as to the existence and character of the devil. As Mr. Maxwell and all other lovers of truth would be glad to know how Christian Scientists interpret their own position, I desire space in your paper to state what I understand to be the teachings of Christian Science in so far as they relate to your published account of his sermon.

Christian Science teaches that as the devil is the adversary, the enemy, or the opposite of God and His Christ, that we can only know what the devil claims to be as know what God is.
