In considering the charge of inconsistency made by your correspondent, it may be well to remember that Christian Scientists in their theory are no farther in advance of their practice than are the Christians of other denominations, for Jesus' sayings, "Take no thought for your body"—"Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect"—and "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, ... and all these things shall be added unto you," are incumbent upon all of his followers and quite as radical as anything to be found in the Christian Science text-book. Here the Master declares that our first duty is to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and yet all Christians suffer to be so now many material habits, practices, and indulgences which do not belong to the kingdom of God nor express His perfection.
