You report the president of the Lancashire and Cheshire Association of Baptist Churches as saying at Oldham that Christian Science attracted by being incomprehensible. May I be permitted to say that the exact opposite is the case? It is just because of its power to call up in the individual a new understanding of those things which he has hitherto been led to regard as incomprehensible mysteries, and the ability with which it provides him to prove for himself that hand in hand with the development of that understanding there comes a mental, moral, and physical betterment, that Christian Science makes so wide an appeal. For as "the excellency of knowledge is that wisdom giveth life to them that have it," so, conversely, the demerit of want of knowledge is that ignorance takes the forms, to our human consciousness, of sin and sickness and death.
