Christian Science and Its Assailants
The Indianapolis Sentinel
Mrs. Eddy and her advanced theory have had no easy course to travel. Both have been assailed again and again, but, for all of the attacks, the cult has extended its influence and increased its power. With the virtue of Mrs. Eddy's theories, with the truth of them, and the certainty of their application, this article does not deal. It would merely call attention to the assault most recently made upon Christian Science tenets. This comes from Dr. Gunsaulus, the eminent president of the Armour Institute. Dr. Gunsaulus finds cause to condemn Christian Science because, he says, Christian Science minimizes pain and sorrow.
"And pain and sorrow," continues the learned doctor, "are the incontestable witnesses to life and strength. There is no progress without them." These words seem very deep, and the thought behind the most subtle, but, after all, closer analysis reveals a hollowness that robs the utterance of strength. First of all, Dr. Gunsaulus apparently admits that Christian Science as a healing influence actually accomplishes its purpose. He admits that it "minimizes" pain and sorrow; but, says he, we need pain and we need sorrow, and we must have them if we would not stand still or go backward.
