Wages war on Worry
The Citizen Press
The Christian Science church of to-day is succeeding because it wages war on worry. This, in a word, is the essence of the tribute paid to Christian Science by Rev. Bastian Smits from his pulpit Sunday morning.
He had taken a text from sixth Matthew, and had preached for about twenty minutes along the line of taking no anxious thought for the morrow, when he paused and remarked that he was going to speak, with proper caution, and, he hoped, in a manner not to be misunderstood or misinterpreted, a word about the Christian Science church. That Christian Scientists were building many magnificent churches throughout the country was a fact, not a theory. The reason the organization was so strong and solid was because they waged incessant and unceasing war on worry. "They say if you have ills, don't think of them. That's good. If you have difficulties, do the best you can and do not worry."
When a minister speaks in that manner he can be classed as liberal. Mr. Smits sets a good example. If we all would "acknowledge the corn" whenever we find good, and say it's good, even if found in a neighbor's garden or competitor's shop; in a doxy which is not our doxy, in a philosophy with which we are not in accord, in worship with which we do not sympathize; when we can proclaim from our mental housetops good is good because it is good whereever found, we are on the right track to individual and national redemption. We are getting together as a worthy people, ready to help one another and thereby help us all.
