The speaker quoted in a recent issue as having satisfied himself that he does not need to believe in Christian Science because of the effects he observes from sitting on a tack, might indeed be said to be painfully in error. The illustration is not original with our friend, and it has gained no weight in transit. The "idealism gone mad," to which the critic refers, is not to be compared, we should say, with the materialism gone mad that would attempt to evolve a philosophy of life from the point of a tack.
Criticism of Christian Science as an effort to induce the material senses to ignore their own sensations, is misdirected. One who gives the literature of Christian Science serious consideration, without which no important subject may be grasped, will readily discover that it concedes to material belief all the ills of the so-called physical man and all the blunders of the so-called human mind. In fact, it cites these phenomena in emphasizing the necessity of apprehending a better selfhood than flesh and blood and a higher intelligence than material brain, if one is ever to rise above the suffering and mistakes of human existence. That this is a most practical and useful idealism is demonstrated in the experience of those who have put it to the test, and found that by its means sickness and sin, twin monstrosities of materiality, may be deprived of their baseless claim of power and dominion over man.
