Christian Science is not asking humanity to accept anything...

Bedford (Eng.) Circular

Christian Science is not asking humanity to accept anything which it cannot demonstrate for itself, and consquently, more than any religion since the days of Paul, it relies on the great saying of the apostle, "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." Christian Science has not been accepted by Christian Scientists lightly and without thought. The movement is composed of too many capable and cultivated men and women to make that possible. It is because these men and women have proved it, and are proving it every day and hour of their lives, that they are holding fast to it and are able to reply to all the angry and bitter criticism which is hurled at them, in the words of Paul, "None of these things move me."

Christian Science is nothing but primitive Christianity made practical today. The Christianity preached by Jesus was not only the most beautiful, but the most practical understanding of truth his had ever listened to. Again and again he told them in varying ways that heaven and earth would pass away, but that his word would not pass away; and through the healing by Christian Science not only of sickness, disease, and pain, but of sorrow and despair and sin, in short, of everything that is unlike God, that teaching is being made practical in the world today. Healing of this nature is not merely a necessity of Christian practice; it is the test of a man's Christianity.
