No Christian Scientist is complaining because our critic believes in and contends for the actual existence of a personal devil; and if Christian Scientist have outgrown some of the dogma and superstition of the past, they should not be called "deluded folk who talk about him [the devil] as an influence of mortal mind."

If the devil is a person and is one, how did Jesus cast seven devils out of Mary Magdalene? Is it possible to put seven persons in one person? When evil beguiled Judas into betraying the Master, he was influenced by a love of money and for the approbation of the Pharisees. When recording this incident St. John says, "After the sop Satan entered into him." Certainly no one believes that a person entered into the person of Judas. Sin tempted him, and he fell a victim to the baneful mental influence that was arrayed against his Master.
