A recent issue reports a clergyman as referring in his sermon to Christian Science as a "non-Christian faith," and classing it with oriental religions. That the readers of your paper may not be misled by this erroneous statement, kindly grant me space to say that our clerical friend is somewhat belated in getting into the arena of public denunciation of Christian Science with this "non-Christian" criticism which has been refuted so many times. At this day and age, when Christian Science has long passed the experimental stage and has developed into a mighty system of religious teaching and demonstration, proving its words by its works, it can hardly be conceived how any one can have such a misconception of Christian Science as to claim it to be "non-Christian," unless it be they have that "hardness of heart" to which Jesus referred when he said, "Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not?"

If any one will honestly investigate the teachings and demonstrations of Christian Science he will find abundant proof of the truth of its healing and redemptive power, that it is in accord with the teachings of Christ Jesus, and that it is obedient to the divine command to preach the gospel and heal the sick. He will also find that those who go to make up the congregations of the well-attended church services on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening are an honest and intelligent people. These people attend these services not through idle curiosity, but because they find that truth which satisfies the hungering heart, bringing freedom from sorrow, sickness, and sin.
