El Paso (Tex.) Herald

It is the good that is seen and felt in Christian Science practice that is its chief attraction, and that is today drawing all men unto it. Truth is the most attractive thing on the earth. Our Master said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Christian Science is daily making practical proof of that promise. Instead of decrying others, it would seem more graceful in our critic if he were found making proof of his discipleship by doing the works that Christ Jesus required of his followers. Hear his words: "These signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; ... they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

That Christian Science is scientific is readily seen and admitted by all who understand it sufficiently to heal by its means. They soon find that blind faith is insufficient and that mere belief in God must be superseded by a demonstrable understanding of the truth about God, in order to reap the benefits promised by the Master, who said: "This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." That Christian Science is Christian is proved by its effects upon the sick and sinful. It reforms the sinner and it heals the sick, and this it does by the same method and in the way that was presented and practised by Christ Jesus and his disciples.
