"What shall we think of Christian Science?"
The Chicago Record-Herald recently published an extract from an interesting and able sermon delivered by the Rev. C. C. Morrison, in the Monroe Street Church of Christ, West Side, Chicago, in response to the above question, in which he said many kindly things of Christian Science. A part of his remarks indicate that he is laboring under some of the current misapprehensions relating to Christian Science. Christian Scientists, however, know this results from lack of a thorough understanding of its tenets, and therefore place these misapprehensions on the same list with those of other misapprehensions which come to their notice.
Speaking of the attitude of some of the orthodox clergy toward Christian Science, Mr. Morrison says:—
"The fanatical utterances of the orthodox pulpit in nowise do justice to the phenomenon known as Christian Science. It is hardly possible that over a million people living on a plane of, to say the least, average intelligence, could be persuaded to stand together on a platform which is wholly bad. To say, then, summarily, that Christian Science is of the devil, is unscientific, and while it may help some perplexed pastor to restrain a few of his more docile people from an investigation of this interesting movement, it does not in any degree meet the facts."
