The great strength and unanswerable logic of Christian Science...

Albert Lea (Minn.) Tribune

The great strength and unanswerable logic of Christian Science is based upon the fact that those who approach it are not asked to accept it because somebody else says so or because it is so written. If it were in that position it would never have attained its marvelous growth or accomplished its wonderful works as evidenced by its astonishing record within the limited period of forty years' existence. On the contrary, Christian Science lays aside mere theories, speculative sophistries, and doctrinal preaching, and says, even as the Master did, "These signs shall follow them that believe." And those who believe and follow the teachings of the Master, as interpreted by Mrs. Eddy in her writings, obtain the realization of their truth by demonstration and result instead of mere promises and hope deferred.

Christian Science does recognize the belief in evil and sin as a condition of mortal experience, but it does not attribute to it that power which makes God subservient to a devil of man's creation and belittles the omnipotence of Spirit by attributing to matter and a traditional hell the dominance over Spirit and heaven. Christian Science teaches the omnipresence of God and, since God is "of purer eyes than to behold evil," it says to the world "that when the consciousness of the individual is illumined by the realization of what God is" man obtains some idea of himself as created in the image and likeness of God; enters into his God-given dominion,—suremacy over evil and sin; liberation from sickness, discord, and slavery of all kinds, and catches a glimpse of that "holy city, new Jerusalem," in which there is no sin, as so beautifully described in the twenty-first chapter of Revelation.
