Pasadena (Cal.) Star
In your issue of Aug. 19 is reported an extract from a sermon delivered by Rev. Homer Vosburgh, wherein he criticises the supposed large profits made by Christian Scientists. If Mr. Vosburgh were conversant with the moderate charges made for the practitioner's time he would realize the impossibility of making large profits, and furthermore would realize that many clergymen are receiving salaries that far exceed the incomes of Christian Science practitioners. This comparison is largely in favor of the Scientist, as he not only preaches the gospel, but also heals the sick, thus fulfilling the dual capacity of clergyman and physician. A Christian Scientist who devotes all his time to uplifting his fellow-man, both physically and spiritually is certainly entitled to have his needs supplied by those whom he is benefiting, in accordance with the Scripture, "Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live by the gospel."
In this connection it may be said that the fee of the Christian Scientist pays only for his time, but that the results of the treatment, i.e., spiritual, moral, and physical redemption, can never be paid for by gold. These can only be paid as the redeemed one brings some other prodigal back to his Father's house that he, too, may enjoy the "glorious liberty of the children of God."
