Not Opposed to Christian Science

It is a sweet thought to me that no one is really opposed to Christian Science. Where there is opposition, whether from a theological or a medical standpoint, investigation always shows that it has arisen from a mistaken report, or from the action of some one who has taken the name without the nature of Christian Science, and whose conduct would be disapproved of by Scientists themselves.

The early Christians were not tortured and put to death for what they did, but for what the people with whom they were surrounded thought they did. They said, "these Christians would like to burn our cities; they are a danger to the community. They sacrifice their children alive to propitiate their gods." This was the direct opposite of the truth, but one repeated it to another, till it was generally believed and accepted as the truth. The fundamental trouble, then as now, was lack of fair-minded investigation.
