The best way to make the Cause of Christian Science...

Greensboro (Ind.) Graphic

The best way to make the Cause of Christian Science grow in this community is to attack it after the style of the man brought here by the Protestant ministers to "expose" it. There are many steps in the process of reasoning followed by the adherents of Mrs. Eddy, and there are many things in the teachings of modern Protestantism that are yet unexplained and must be taken by faith or not at all; but it does not argue that a thing is false because we do not understand it or are not able to explain it. We do not know why the sun shines, and only theory tells why its heat produces certain results, but are we justified in denying the existence of the results because we do not understand?

The belief in Christian Science produces certain results in those who believe in it and in those who practise it, and they have occurred right here in this city. It is only the wilfully blind who do not see. The intolerance of others who do not believe will not destroy Christian Science, and persecution of the band of women in this city who compose the local branch will raise up for them friends of whom the persecuting ministerial association dreams not.
