The Lectures

A lecture on Christian Science by the Rev. William P. McKenzie was given before an audience of about one thousand men and women in Irem Temple Auditorium. The speaker was introduced by W. E. Woodruff of this city, who said in part:—

I am not myself a Christian Scientist, though for this frank statement I ask neither condemnation nor commendation. I am one of those able to listen with impartial poise and with interest to what shall be offered. We may as well remember that Christian Science is not a cult derived from esoteric or exoteric sources of mysticism. It is founded on the precepts and example of Jesus of Nazareth, and as to what Christian Science develops from its source of inspiration, it is in a strict orthodox sense in advance of not a few members and even clergymen of some of the denominations. Whether this Christian Science with its now million of adherents shall some day be merged in the various Christian bodies to energize them, or through force of conditions preserve its own independent organization, is a thing none of us can say or even dream. The world has been asking these centuries, "What is truth?" and if yours shall be the readier answer, the provable, the direct, forceful answer, the world will come to recognize it.—Wilkes-Barre Record.
