All denominations which profess the faith of Christ crucified...

Baltimore (Md.) News

All denominations which profess the faith of Christ crucified are supposed to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace and in righteousness of life. There are, and always will be, "diversities of operation," but there should be the same spirit of righteousness, peace, and good will. Why, then, should any man, clergy or layman, feel called upon to attack savagely a form of Christianity differing in particulars from his own?

The Christian Scientists believe in the existence of God, in the divinity of Christ, in moral responsibility, and in strict uprightness of life. These are cardinal Christian doctrines common to all Christian bodies, and so believing, the Christian Scientists should receive the right hand of fellowship. That they have no ritual or sacraments, that they interpret all things symbolically, is much their own affair; it is their way of looking at things, of conceiving of things. Absence of ritual, together with symbolic interpretation, do not by any means presuppose absence of spiritual grace and truth, as is witnessed by our brethren the Quakers.
