It is stated that our critic in her arraignment of Christian Science said "she did not wish to offend any one, but her warning was given to those who may be wavering toward that faith, for she felt they should investigate and understand before casting aside the old established forms of religion." Christian Science welcomes investigators. It is made up of people who have thoroughly investigated for themselves, who are thinkers enough to determine for themselves what they want, and who are won to the truth when they see it. Its teachings are so clear and definite and satisfying to those who have investigated them, that the surprise to them is that the whole world is not anxiously striving to understand their import, for they supplant discord with harmony, they give peace, happiness, and contentment where the opposite conditions seemed to obtain; they beget health and strength and that spiritual understanding of God's infinite ability, presence, and power, of which the wise man said, "Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it." No Christian Scientist could by any means be induced to relinquish that which Christian Science has brought to him by way of good, for he recognizes it to be in the highest degree Christian and scientific in that it affords demonstrable proofs of "ascertained facts" relating to God, man, and the universe, and is therefore the most satisfactory religious teaching that has been presented for the consideration of mankind.
