Richmond (Eng.) Herald

I have read in a recent issue a report of an address delivered at the Richmond Free church, in which the speaker referred to Christian Science. It is perfectly true that Christian Scientists are "determined to look at the bright side of things," and I will venture to add that there are few people who would not agree that it is the very best policy side of things," and I will venture to add that there are few people who would not agree that it is the very best policy to adopt. I believe also that there is no one who would not adopt it if he only knew how. Christian Scientists are able to adopt this attitude, not so much because they are "comfortable enough" to do so as because they have proved that the bright side is really the only side to look upon.

During many centuries humanity has been battling with evil, to which as much, and frequently more, power has been given than to good. Now the very fact that this battle is being waged with as much vigor as ever affords abundant proof that this house "divided against itself," namely, the belief in the absolute reality of both good and evil, is built on no sure foundation. Christian Scientists are, however, learning to prove with greater certainty day by day that there is but one real power, the power of omnipotent good, and therefore but one real side to look upon.
