The gentleman who tells us, in the California Christian Advocate, "where Christian Science ends," needs to know that "of this kingdom there shall be no end." The great spiritual truth of the Bible, as understood in Christian Science, is as demonstrable today as it was nineteen hundred years ago, for God is "the same Yesterday, and today, and forever." Jesus said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away;" he also said, "Thy word is truth." This truth is elucidated in the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. The reason for the establishment of the Christian Science church was to "reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing" (Manual, p. 17). The first tenet of the Christian Science church reads: "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life" (Science and Health, p. 497).

As to the absured charge that Christian Science is agnosticism, any one who has ever attended a Christian Science service or read a page of the Christian Science text-book, know that it teaches that God is not unknowable, but that all may comprehend Him. As the Bible states, "All shall know me [God] from the least to the greatest." An agnostic is on who believes it to be impossible to know God, or, according to Webster, he is one professing ignorance; but the Christian Scientist says, with Paul, "I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day." Jesus said, as recorded in the gospel of St. John, "And I know that his commandment is life everlasting."
