Minneapolis (Minn.) Progress

Mrs. Eddy's religion is in its essential points as old as the Bible, for it was from earnest study of the Bible that Mrs. Eddy found in the lives of the prophets and in the teaching and practice of our Master and of his apostles the truths which had been lost sight of ever since the days of the early Christian church. Christian Science is the primitive Christianity of our Saviour, restored to its original simplicity and purity as taught and practised by Christ Jesus, by his apostles, and by the early Christians. To his command, "Preach the gospel," Jesus always added, "Heal the sick."

As the prophets of old came to lead men up to the beautiful religion of Jesus, so Mrs. Eddy's mission has been to lead men, not to her feet, but to the feet of Christ, and to teach them how to understand his words and to follow in his steps; for he said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;" and again, "It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master."
