Washington (D. C.) Post

The admonition which the Master gave is still in force, "Search the scriptures." To search implies careful and painstaking work.

The interpretation given to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy was the result of diligent and long-continued search, combined with a keen sense of discrimination. On page 139 of Science and Health she has written: "The decisions by vote of church councils as to what should and should not be considered Holy Writ; the manifest mistakes in the ancient versions; the thirty thousand different readings in the Old Testament, and the three hundred thousand in the New,—these facts show how a mortal and material sense stole into the divine record, with its own hue darkening to some extent the inspired pages."
