Los Angeles (Cal.) Herald
Even the most hard-headed conservative cannot deny that Christian Science has done much good in the world. The motives of its professors are above reproach. They seek, and by their actions show that they seek, the improvement of mankind, socially, physically, morally, spiritually. Their philosophy of cheerfulness accomplishes excellent results, and the Bible is undeniably the authority for the saying, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine" (for which, we must infer from the Biblical statement, cheerfulness is a substitute); and as a man "thinketh in his heart, so is he." By banishing all kinds of fear, and especially fear of sickness, Christian Science has succeeded in helping poor struggling men and women who, like the characters in "Pilgrim's Progress," without assistance would soon be bogged hopelessly in the Slough of Despond. Like Helpful in the old allegory, the encouraging philosophy called Christian Science extends a hand to assist the pilgrims to firm ground.
No fair-minded observer can deny to Christian Science the credit of having brought a new glimpse of higher and better living into the world, like sunshine, at a sordid and stormy period of the world's history. We have no sympathy with people who condemn without a hearing any form of belief because it is new to them. Christianity itself at its beginning was criticized as harshly as Christian Science is to-day. Nay, more, to be a Christian was a capital offense! But neither the lash nor the lions killed Christianity.
