The Undivided Garment

From time to time critics rise to find fault with Christian Science, and especially to demur to the use of the word Christian in connection with it. Happily these critics have grown fewer in number, and their words receive less notice than formerly.

Webster's definition of Christianity is: "The religion of Christians; the system of doctrines and precepts taught by Christ. Practical conformity of one's inward and outward life to the spirit of the Christian religion." The Century Dictionary gives as one definition of the same word: "Conformity to the teachings of Christ in life and conduct," and as the definition of the word Christian, "Specifically, one who possesses the spiritual character proper to a follower of Christ; one who exemplifies in his life the teachings of Christ."
