Christian Scientists have great respect for the noble army...
Christian Scientists have great respect for the noble army that is seeking to relieve the distressed through the use of material remedies. They would give due respect to every therapeutical and ethical institution which honestly seeks to benefit mankind, but they must insist that what Jesus taught and practised was and is the perfect way. While one medical student is choosing the homœopathic system and another the allopathic system, it seems a little strange that so few are choosing the system which Jesus practised, for if we may be permitted to judge the merits of a system by its results, we must concede that Jesus' method was the best, for he was the only one who always succeeded. There is neither authority nor reason for the substitution of material remedies for the power of God in treating the sick.
Christian Scientists make no boasts regarding their immunity from sickness, being well aware that many generations must pass before there is a sufficient degree of spirituality in the world to accomplish all that this Science promises. I am personally acquainted with many Christian Scientists whose lives have been prolonged far beyond the period allotted them by medical practitioners, and this is at least a step in the right direction. We expect that finally the fulness of Truth will be demonstrated in the lives of mankind.
