Worcester (Mass.) Gazette

To give an intelligent exposition of Christian Science, one should be both well informed and unbiased. From our critic's remarks we feel sure that he has been greatly misinformed regarding Christian Science and the methods of is Leader, Mrs. Eddy.

It is true that, as in the physical sciences, terms are often used in dealing with this subject which are unusual and new; they may be high sounding, but the statements are illogical only to those who have not taken the trouble to study and demonstrate their truth. The faith of Christian Scientists is not "blind," and "the reason of the hope that is in them" may be discovered by inquiring into the lives of any of the thousands of men and women who have been raised to health and happiness from conditions of hopeless suffering.

It is conceded by all who know Mrs. Eddy that she has a remarkably clear mentality. Not to this alone, however, is due her success as a Leader. It is her spiritual discernment and humble obedience to divine authority that has enabled her, like Moses of old, to lead suffering humanity out of the darkness of superstition and the bondage of false beliefs, materialism, and idolatry.
