It is cheerfully admitted that Christian Scientists may look upon various vital questions quite differently from our friend. Some of us doubtless have ideas about God, man, the universe, life, etc., which this critic could not accept from his present point of view. That this is not peculiarly true of Christian Scientists, however, is manifest from the fact that hundreds of creeds and sects, each with a more or less satisfied following, exist throughout the world. We are all making progress, except, perhaps, some individuals who have conceived it to be their duty to discourse to the world on the shortcomings of their neighbors' convictions instead of demonstrating the practical value of their own.

Science and Health contains an entire chapter on the subject of prayer and another chapter on the antonement. These chapters have disclosed to thousands of earnest seekers the way by which they might solve the doubts and uncertainties of years, a practical method by which they might "prove all things" and "hold fast that which is good." A religion which proves itself and asks no man to believe that which it cannot enable him to demonstrate to his individual satisfaction, Christian Science is in accord with the frank, intelligent, progressive spirit of the age. Its manifest fruits include health, holiness, brotherly kindness, temperance, meekness, integrity, efficiency, good citizenship. Its adherents, though yet acknowledging many shortcomings, are invariably better with it than they were without it, for it works only good.
