As Christian Science has once again been adversely criticized...

Montrose (Scot.) Standard

As Christian Science has once again been adversely criticized in your columns, I shall be glad if you will allow me to make a reply. The writer would put Christian Science outside the pale of Christianity, because it does not interpret the gospel teachings as he interprets them. If there were no difference of opinion in the interpretation of the Scriptures, there would be but one Christian church; but each one of the many Christian sects represents a different view held of some Scriptural doctrine or practise.

The method of comparing isolated Bible texts with isolated statements from Mrs. Eddy's works will not commend itself to the thinkers. The gospel treated in the same way would appear to contradict itself: "I and my Father are one." "Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God;" and again, "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise." "Before Abraham was, I am." There was a time when these and similar statements appeared mysterious and obscure; now, through the teaching of Christian Science, they have become comprehensible, satisfying, plain.
