Excerpts from Editorials
In discussing the recent great demonstration of Christian Science in Boston the editor of The Watchman, a Baptist paper, concludes with the statement that this system of religion engages in no work of charity in any form, and that it alone, of all the religions, therefore lacks the element of self-abnegation. It is not proposed here to enter the ranks of disputants over the issue thus raised. The Christian Science defenders are an able body, and constantly show that they can at all times stand and defend the faith and good works which they profess. We may, however, say in a dozen words, which will be indorsed by those who are intimate friends of representative Christian Science followers without being full sharers of their faith, that no people are more earnest and devoted in their efforts for the good of others, both material and spiritual. This is the fruit of love for others, and it is therefore charity. It would be unfair to say, without ample proof, that this development in the lives of individuals is not at least a part of their religion, even though it may not be the whole of it. The apparent lack of charity organization in the church body does not discredit the fact of individual charity.
