Indianapolis (Ind.) Star

In a recent issue of the Star a critic expresses his agreement with my point that if the medical fraternity fails to save certain persons "in the incipiency of their troubles, they cannot reasonably complain because Christian Science fails to rescue them in the more advanced and formidable stage of their disease." He adds that "only good would result under such circumstances," and that "any case healed under these circumstances points to the fact that such a person had been overdosing in medicine, or had been applying material help in a manner out of harmony with natural law, in which case Christian Science does help, because it changes the patient's thought and indirectly nature is given a chance."

In the light of such an admission one might well conclude that thousands of persons die every day from "overdosing in medicine," or the application of "material help in a manner out of harmony with natural law," who might be saved if they would turn to Christian Science. Under such circumstances, it seems to us that our critic would be more consistent if he spent his time urging those who are failing to recover under medical practice to turn to Christian Science, rather than in condemnation of Christian Science.
