THE LECTURES

A lecture on Christian Science was delivered here April 17 by Bliss Knapp for First Church of Christ, Scientist. He was introduced by the Rev. H. Edward Mills, who said:—

We are assembled this evening to hear a lecture on Christian Science. If I am correctly informed, these lectures given from time to time in our own and other cities are not intended as a defense of Christian Science, but as an explanation of it. Christian Science like every other science must be and is its own defense. Men can do very little either for or against it. In fact its utter independence of both its foes and its friends constitutes to my mind its most remarkable characteristic. Some men have honestly felt that they ought to oppose and, if possible, overthrow Christian Science. After exhausting every resource at their command, what have they found? That this great movement, like the rotation of the earth, has gone calmly on, apparently unconscious of all they have said and done. Other men have felt called upon to champion the cause. What have they found? That Christian Science needs champions about as much as does the attraction of gravity. Could anything be a greater cure for that common malady, human conceit?
