Indianapolis (Ind.) Times

A recent edition of your paper, in reporting a sermon by a clergyman, quotes him as making remarks that show a lack of correct information as to the teachings and practice of Christian Science. Our brother seems to be very much grieved that Christian Science is proving so attractive to members of other churches, for they are turning to Christian Science in large numbers. Perhaps an explanation of the cause for the lament is to be found, in part at least, in the spectacle of a Christian minister substituting for the Master's commands to "preach the gospel" and "heal the sick," an attack upon a noble woman whose work has brought forth the commendation of many of the world's greatest thinkers, some of whom, while not accepting her teachings, regard her as humanity's real benefactor.

Christian Scientists acknowledge Mrs. Eddy as the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, but there is nothing in this acknowledgment that deifies her in the slightest degree. It is only natural that those who have been healed of sin, physical suffering, and mental inharmonies, should experience and express a strong sense of love and gratitude for the one whose tireless devotion to the task set before her furnished to them the means of freedom.
