Cheltenham (Glos. Eng.) Examiner

If Christian Science is "the very negation of reason and experience," then Christianity as taught and practised by Jesus must be described in like manner, for Christian Science is founded solely and entirely on the words and works of our Master, and is but a renewal or continuance of his practical demonstrations of the power of Truth to destroy every form of sickness and sin.

Christian Science is acknowledged as a great healing and regenerating power in the world today by broad-minded, thinking people, even though they may not be in accord with all its teachings. The publication of the facts of an occasional failure on the part of a Christian Scientist to heal a patient does not "assist in discrediting Christian Science," as the writer of the article in your issue of the 28th ult. fondly but ineffectually hopes it may, though the daily obituary column in the Times, or any other daily paper, certainly runs the risk of bringing discredit upon medical science, so called. Christian Scientists, however, have no desire to cast reflections upon those members of the medical profession who are devoting their lives to the endeavor to alleviate sickness and suffering, in accordance with the methods which appear to them to be the only right ones, although those same methods are of necessity purely experimental, because they do not rest upon a scientific basis and are constantly changing.
