Christian Science Healing in Halifax

Halifax (Can.) Evening Mail

Not a little inconsequent and thoroughly worthless comment has been leveled at Christian Science and Christian Scientists, yet the number of Mrs. Eddy's followers grows apace, and all hold with greater tenacity than ever the truth which they profess. The members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, this city, are being recruited daily from those who assert that they believe in Christian Science because it has to them personally proved as efficacious in the cure of physical disease as of spiritual, when all else has failed. The Stroller could enumerate, if good taste did not forbid it, at least five cases of alleged physical cures which are simply marvelous. The fact remains that whatever cured them, cured they are. "Whereas I was blind, now I see," said one, nor is any man likely to be shaken by sneers or ridicule who has an argument like that on which to plant himself. It is an impregnable rock, and cannot be shaken. When all is said, it remains—so far as may be judged by its adherents in this city—that it is a belief which makes people singularly happy, gentle, unselfish, both in action and—what is much more unusual—in speech. In the various discussions which have from time to time engaged public attention as between Christian Scientists and their opponents, the former have shown a notable self-restraint under occasionally very malignant attack. The world in general has a remarkably sound belief in the logic which judges a tree by its fruits, and has very high authority for doing so. Christian Science, as it may be judged by its local adherents, is a fruit-bearing tree whose leaves are uncommonly like those of one said to be for "the healing of the nations."—Halifax (Can.)
