I have read the Bishop of Chichester's criticism of Christian Science

Eastbourne (Eng.) Gazette

I have read the Bishop of Chichester's criticism of Christian Science. The criticism is remarkable, in that the bishop commences by acknowledging the need of a greater realization of joy in his own religion, continues by repeating statements from people who have found more joy in Christian Science than in their former views of Christianity, and concludes by saying that Christian Science is neither Christian nor scientific!

However one may respect the opinion of an individual, one is not prepared to accept a dogmatic assertion on any subject unless he has some proper standard by which to test its truth. The question, therefore, that confronts us is, What really constitutes a Christian? It is readily acknowledged that true Christianity is founded on the teachings of Jesus the Christ, and those teachings and practices that most closely follow his have undoubtedly the strongest claim to the name Christian. The difficulty, however, which has arisen in the minds of many seekers after Truth is to discriminate between the various sects of the Christian church, each one of which claims to have a particularly clear and correct interpretation of the Master's teachings.
