Your writer has been kind enough to concede some virtue to Christian Science, at the same time disclaiming for it so much as a "sisterhood with science." He not only impugns the Science, but questions the Christianity of those who claim to heal according to the Christ-method. He says also that this method was not original with Jesus of Nazareth. "It was in vogue under the ancient philosophers in the morning of history." Now, does not the fact that this method is productive of good, under certain conditions; that it has obtained from the earliest reckoning of history; that the Christ, who evolved the best way of correct living, taught it—prove its universal possibilities?

We are living in the Christian era, in a Christian country, and supposedly Christian lives. The fundamental rule of Christianity is the fact: "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Free from what? Free from that which holds in bondage. Is it not the law of the flesh which holds humanity in its greatest bondage? Then, when we learn to know the truth of our existence, which is spiritual, we are no longer in bondage to the law of the flesh, which is material. This knowledge of the truth enables us to appeal to the "supreme court" for a final decision, which is: "Love is the fulfilling of the law."
