Christian Science is here to stay

Independence (Kan.) Republican

Christian Science is here to stay. It will survive any of its present-day traducers and is destined to supplant any existing religion that allows its creed to remain unrevised. Christian Scientists do not claim to know it all. New discoveries are being constantly made in the realm of thought, and the bright minds in Christian Science are in the front rank of these explorers in search of knowledge and the truth. Here are some of the symptoms of the early demise of Christian Science: More than a thousand prosperous organizations in the United States; somewhere throughout Christendom a new Christian Science church is being established at the rate of one every four days; it numbers new adherents by the hundred every week.

Christian Science churches are flourishing in every city in the land without making life miserable for the business men of a community through solicitation in myriad forms. It is a sad commentary upon the orthodox church that it cannot exist upon the free-will offerings of its membership. At the same hour that a critic was castigating his congregation for its lack of liberality toward the church, and its tendency to spend money for automobiles, the collection basket at the Christian Science church was being literally weighted down with the coined gratitude of a people who had obtained therefor value received. Practical proposition, isn't it? Is it any wonder people go after it?
