The Morning News
Last evening [May 16] the Church Club of Delaware held its annual meeting in the home of the Wilmington Country Club. After the banquet, among other speakers, John Brooks Leavitt of New York spoke for half an hour, holding the close attention of his hearers from the start, never for an instant being interrupted by applause or any sign of uneasiness. He spoke directly and with force. His thought was that the Bible was not studied to-day as it should be and that the study of the Bible seemed to have become a lost art. Then he put to the club members a question that seemed to make a profound impression. It was in respect to the spread of Christian Science. "What are you going to do about it?" he asked. He did not believe that it was a matter to be dismissed offhand. The Christian Scientists based their teachings on the New Testament and there could be no warfare made against them on that line. The Episcopal Church had eight hundred thousand communicants, but the Christian Scientists claim to have one million followers. They were growing in strength and the speaker thought that perhaps the new religion was a revulsion from the wave of skepticism that passed over the country thirty odd years ago. ... It was not to antagonize, to laugh at, or to sneer at Christian Science. He spoke with deep feeling and earnestness, and while holding that he was not in any sense to be considered a Christian Scientist it was yet a fact that Christian Science could not be ignored. Time alone could demonstrate whether or not it had come to stay.
