Oconomowoc (Wis.) Enterprise

A recent issue of the Enterprise announced a sermon on "Why I am not a Christian Scientist," or "Mrs. Eddy versus Jesus Christ." The implication carries with it the assumption that the critic is thoroughly familiar with the teachings both of the Master and of Christian Science. The question arises, "How are we to know what the Master taught and what Mrs. Eddy teaches?" Jesus said : "My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself."

On page 28 of the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says: "Neither the origin, the character, nor the work of Jesus was generally understood. Not a single component part of his nature did the material world measure aright. Even his righteousness and purity did not hinder men from saying : He is a glutton and a friend of the impure, and Beelzebub is his patron."
