The Lectures

The remarks by Judge R. P. de Graffenried of the district court, in introducing Bicknell Young at the lecture on Christian Science in the Hinton Theater, were in part as follows:—

When we contemplate the manner in which the people of the world are becoming interested in and adopting the basic truths of religion as enunciated by Mrs. Eddy, it seems marvelous. Well do I remember that only a few years back there was but a handful of those who adhered to the fundamentals taught by her. I know that it is hard for a person reared in an orthodox church and taught its principles and doctrines from infancy, to give this subject a fair and honest consideration. We are too apt to condemn it as sacrilegious without knowing one of its fundamental teachings. We should strive to overcome this prejudice and give this subject the due and earnest consideration that it deserves, and if after fair investigation and conscientious thought we cannot embrace this religion, then no harm is done. I have little respect for the individual who will denounce this or any other subject as a heresy, and at the same time confess his ignorance of its teachings.
