THE DEMAND FOR A SCIENTIFIC RELIGION

In an article appearing in the current Homiletic Monthly, a distinguished British scientist refers to a forthcoming "age of religion ... when, divorced from superstition and allied with progressive knowledge, it will no longer remain for the solace of the few but will be recognized as a genuine power by the many, and become a vivifying influence among the masses of humanity."

Assuming that the phrase "progressive knowledge" stands for the outcome of the application of the scientific spirit to religious inquiry, we have in the above quotation a statement that but repeats that essential teaching of Christian Science which forty years ago was prefaced by Mrs. Eddy with the awakening words, "The time for thinkers has come. Truth, independent of doctrines and time-honored systems, knocks at the portal of humanity" (Science and Health, Pref. p. vii.).
