Another source to which thousands have fled for help...

The Denver (Col.) News

Another source to which thousands have fled for help, and which has called down upon itself the anathema of many leaders, is Christian Science. It came into existence by the imperative call of suffering humanity, and the thousands who have gone there have not been disappointed. They have gotten what fresh air failed to give. They have gotten what the genius of medicine and the science of surgery failed to give. They went and are going hither by droves, not so much from the highways and by-ways as from our Sunday Schools and churches, and why? Because the champions of the gospel failed to show them relief in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel will help your soul, help you to suffer and promise you relief at death; but when the cry went up, "I am tired of suffering, I am weary of sorrow, I must either have relief or die," no one was found who could open this book—the Book of books—containing the good news of books—containing the good news of all good news. Christian Science comes forward as the response to this call, and gives the desired relief, and to-day thousands are living healthy and happy lives because of its ministrations. ... Oh, friends, stop and ask why is this condition of affairs after two thousand years of gospel study and teaching. It is because people have found in Science and Health what had not been shown them in the Scriptures before. A few weeks ago I heard two ministers discussing Christian Science, and telling each other its errors, and that they were going to preach a series of sermons against its errors. Better for them if they would go out and do for the world what Christian Science has done and is doing for the world. Dogmatically, theologically, and doctrinally, the churches may have the advantage and be more correct, but practically they are far behind. May I ask the question, Does the gospel, the good news, have anything to say to poor, sick, and suffering humanity besides relief at death? Yes, a thousand times yes.
