El Paso (Tex.) Herald

In a recent issue of the Herald appeared some extracts from a sermon delivered in your city by an evangelist, in which unfriendly mention is made of Christian Science and of its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy.

Christian Scientists are today doing the works that were required by the Master of his followers. They are healing the sick and reforming the sinner without the use of drugs and by purely spiritual means. Christ Jesus said: "Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." Our critic errs in believing the devil has any part in the healing work effect in Christian Science practice. The devil is not a source of good, nor a doer of good works. The devil (evil) is not a healer. Evil thoughts make a man sick, while righteousness, right thoughts, restores health.
