Whatever we may think of Christian Science or Christian Scientists...

Granite State Free Press

Whatever we may think of Christian Science or Christian Scientists, we are forced to admire their devotion to Principle. It is too late to rate these people fools. We fool ourselves if we do that. They come from the most intelligent and most respectable and the most orderly classes. We shall not all follow them; but we may find we can learn something from them. And we should be careful to know ere we judge them. What in all their gatherings they seem to emphasize more than even Mind-healing is the duty to love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you. There is no harm in that. We may possibly learn from them that it is "up to us" to walk a little more closely with God and His Christ than we have thought practicable. Surely, if ever people when reviled, reviled not again, these are they. How patiently they take every criticism.
