The Hutchinson (Kan.) Gazette

In a recent issue we notice that Dr.—continues his stock abuse of Christian Science. It is clear that sermons filled with vindictiveness and ridicule are sadly lacking in the one thing needful,—the spirit of brotherly love. Christianity is a vital subject, and its truths are not imparted through a spirit of revengefulness against those who do not follow the old beaten paths of sectarianism. Today as never before, humanity is seeking divine wisdom, desiring a true knowledge of God and His Christ. This hungering for righteousness can be satisfied only through the full understanding of scientific truth, the whole garment of the risen Christ, which heals sorrow and disease as well as sin.

As God is Truth, He is knowable, and those attending church services, who are honestly and earnestly seeking to know Him, are entitled to that scientific and demonstrable explanation of the operation of His law which will meet their human need. Christian Science imparts to mankind a knowledge of our spiritual relation to God, and lifts us above a blind trust into the faith of understanding, which assures us that prayer and its answer coexist. Jesus said: "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."

Christian Science is capable of proof. Any one who lays aside his human prejudices and honestly studies the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, can prove for himself that this religion is both Christian and scientific; also that to be a genuine Christian one must necessarily be a Scientist. Webster defines the term Christian as an adherent of Christianity, one whose inward and outward life is conformed to the doctrines of Christ. He also defines science as knowledge classified and made available in work, in life, and in the search for truth.
