The Durham County (England) Advertiser

In the Archdeacon of London's excellent sermon, preached in Durham Cathedral, and reported in your issue of May 24, he refers to Christian Science, and includes this Science in the same category as some Oriental systems, which he declares have "floated into a brief existence by the neglect of some essential Christian truth." Christian Science teaches that neither the occult nor the mysterious belong to the Christian Church. Jesus did not say his works were mysterious, but he did say, "He that belieyeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." Through the discovery of Christian Science (which is set forth clearly in the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy) many church people, and many who never belonged to any Christian denomination, are now able to fulfil the commands of the Master, and to put some of the venerable Archdeacon's advice into practice. While it may be true that necromancy, mesmerism, and hypnotism have sprung up because of the neglect of teaching "some essential Christian truth," Christian Science proves that the understanding of the truth will destroy these evils.

Christian Scientists are taught to love the Church and to recognize all the good it has done. They understand that evil—sin—is the same error to-day that it always has been; that it is resident in mortal mind, or the "carnal mind," as Paul called it; and that it will be destroyed by righteousness, right thinking, purity, peace, and joy. Christian Science will aid the Church in this warfare, and at the same time help to spiritualize all the present systems of religion and medicine.
