Marion (O.) Mirror
If Christian Science had no more merit than the person representing himself as a doctor in your issue of the 15th professes to believe, you would not be asked to publish attacks upon it, for it would have ceased to attract public attention long ago. The work of Mrs. Eddy, in pointing to a Saviour who gave his disciples power "to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease," and in showing her followers that the same power to heal and to save is here today, may have resulted in curtailing to some extent the revenues of the physicians, but this is not a justifiable reason for their stoning her, for there should be no doubt in the minds of well informed and unprejudiced people as to her integrity of purpose and earnest desire to benefit mankind through her work.
Three dollars, the price of Science and Health, need not be regarded as a large amount for a book of seven hundred pages, whether it be regarded as a scientific work or as a commentary on the Bible, and Christian Scientists have satisfied themselves that it is both the most scientific work and the best commentary on the Bible which they have ever found. Those who are opposed to Christian Science, and therefore have no use for its text-book, certainly have no cause for complaint on account of the price, so long as those who do wish to purchase the book are satisfied.
Jesus declared that he came not to destroy the law, but to fulfil it; and as a matter of logical reasoning, as well as revelation, it must be apparent that the same power is in the world today that was here nineteen hundred years ago; and the failure of the Christian church to carry out more fully the injunction of the Master when he said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also," arises not so much from lack of desire as from a lack of understanding of the power which was used by Jesus and his disciples in healing the sick.
