Pontefract and Castleford (England) Express

Mr.—raises objections to what he terms the teachings of Christian Science. He is in the happy position of having decided for himself exactly what these teachings are, and although this decision is quite unlike what Christian Science teaches, he proceeds to show where these teachings are wrong. I quite agree with him that his statements as to what Christian Science teaches are wrong; but then, they are in no way the teachings of Christian Science; for this religion does not teach that the tomorrow of the world is with Christian Science. It does teach that the yesterday, today, and tomorrow are with that Christ which Christian Science exemplifies and whose commands it is daily fulfilling. It the critic likes to believe the old fairy-tale that some day the impossible sight is going to be witnessed of a personality called God sitting on a throne and judging several thousands of millions of human beings, he is quite at liberty to continue in this dream. Christian Science, however, teaches that the very Christ, or God's law, which the critic talks about so freely, is here and now judging evil every minute, and healing and redeeming men from its various phases just as soon as they are willing to turn from their belief in the power and reality of evil.

This gentleman is sure that the world needs a shepherd instead of a science; but Jesus declared, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Again, he declared, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." If the truth is not scientific, then I should like to know what is. Fortunately for humanity, we live in a scientific age, when humanity is demanding and obtaining a practical, ever-present Christ, revealing God's law to them, and healing them from their sins and sicknesses; and no amount of worn-out dogma or blind "faith without works" can stop the mighty onflow of this new-old truth revealing God's love for man and His ability and willingness to be "a God at hand," and "not a God afar off."
