Pertinent Testimony

It is very gratifying to all Christian Scientists, to note the number of competent witnesses who are voluntarily offering their testimony in refutation of mis-statements and misrepresentations which, through ignorance or prejudice, have been made of our faith.

That ignorance, so dense as to seem quite inexplicable, is for the most part responsible for this unfavorable criticism, appears in the fact that much of it emanates from good, well-meaning men, ministers and others, who very largely stand for opinions and convictions which, in their beginnings, suffered the same kind of contumely and opprobrium at the hands of the then dominant conventional faith.

Christian men whose fathers were called to endure misjudgment and aspersion, if not persecution, are not likely to speak ill of the sacred convictions of those whom they know to be honest and sincere, nor will they misrepresent and calumniate a faith or movement which they know to be unselfish and philanthropic, even though they cannot give it, their personal endorsement.
