Michigan Christian Advocate

The article on Christian Science by Mr.—in a recent issue of the Advocate is before me. If the gentleman is serious in his reflections upon the duty of Christian Scientists to the sick and suffering, he should remember that the promise of Christ Jesus was to all who claimed to be his followers. His words were, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

If the Christian of today believes that the Master spoke these words to the people of his time, there is no argument in saying that "Christian Science poses before the world as the last word concerning human suffering," or that the promise was given for that specific time and people; for in his wonderful prayer shortly before his crucifixion, Jesus used these words: "Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word." Christian Scientists do not claim to have a monopoly of doing good for humanity, they desire to share it with other Christians.
