Whether anybody believes in Christian Science or not...

Utica (N. Y.) Press

Whether anybody believes in Christian Science or not, the fact remains that it has had a wonderful growth. It is less than thirty years ago that Mrs. Eddy organized the first Christian Science church in Boston. It started out with twenty-six members and now it has forty thousand. Churches of that faith have sprung up all over the country and there are hundreds of congregations that meet regularly in hired halls, who as yet have no edifice of their own. The orthodox churches do not subscribe to the doctrines and dogmas of this new faith, but they are not as active in pitching into it as they were formerly. Christian Science must stand or fall on its merits, just like Presbyterianism, or Methodism, or any other faith. People need not worry themselves about it very much, for its adherents are good citizens, law-abiding people. In this country it is everybody's blessed privilege to worship as they please and believe as they like, so long as there is no violation of or interference with the laws of the land. The wisest way for all the other denominations is to work along their own lines conscientiously and zealously, and all the faiths that are false will eventually fall of their own weight.
