Modesto (Cal.) News

In his last letter to your paper "Junius" enumerates again the good things he concedes to be in Christian Science, and generously adds another in that he "recognizes The Christian Science Monitor as a good newspaper." Our friend tells of the abundant peace to be gained through believing on Jesus Christ, "where the spiritual life is concerned." Christian Scientists rejoice at whatever of spiritual blessing is found in other churches, and they recognize that as compared with the so-called physical life the spiritual is allimportant; they also understand, however, that Jesus, through both his words and his works, taught a full salvation, freeing men from sickness as well as from sin. He said, "The Father ... he doeth the works;" and he promised that those who through his teachings should come to know the Father, would be able to do likewise, for, he said, "these signs shall follow them that believe; ... they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

The critic also says, "The facts are evident on all sides to prove the fallacy of Mrs. Eddy's theories." It should be remembered that in Jesus' day equally plausible arguments were advanced against his teaching, and that every case brought to him for healing presented, from the standpoint of the senses, conclusive "evidence" of the reality and permanence of disease; yet Jesus rebuked this evidence, and destroyed the sense testimony which had seemed so real.
