Haverhill (Mass.) Gasette
The Rev. Dr. van Allen of Boston, who devoted his pulpit time on Sunday to an attack on the Christian Scientists, prefaced his remarks with the statement that it is as useless to argue with a Scientist as to wrestle with a fog-bank; which was quite true, the result ordinarily being that the attacking party gets lost in the fog. But the preacher took his chances and wasted his time, just the same, having little effect on the Scientists who heard him or who read his attack, and still less on the non-Scientists, who wondered what all his effort was wasted for, if there were nothing but a delusion that needed such a vigorous assault. Are there not more important problems of the day for the pulpit to tackle than that of Christian Science? The followers of Mrs. Eddy are accomplishing some great things, even if the world is not quite ready to admit that they can accomplish all that they claim: and, even if one is inclined to believe that is some buncombe in it all, there must be the admission that there is a deal of reality and that in many a direction the "regular" churches might well take a few points from the Scientists. We fail to see what harm they are doing in the world, and there are evidences of good being done of which any organization concerned in the welfare of mankind might well be proud.
