In a recent issue of Oak Leaves the sermon of a local clergyman was reported, most of the space being given to "taking issue" with Christian Science. The reverend gentleman describes himself as taking "loving issue" with another religion, but he is unsuccessful in making his criticism loving or even fair, for while purporting to present his hearers with the truth about Christian Science, he dresses up his misconceptions of its teachings in so unsympathetic and unfriendly a way as to make them nothing less than grotesque and wholly unrecognizable.
A consideration of the quotations he selects throughout the article makes it clear that instead of trying to portray its teachings fairly, he takes only such quotations as would when separated from their context convey an unfavorable impression. Those unacquainted with the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, who may be tempted to credit the caricatures presented, should do the subject under consideration the justice to read for themselves the passages to which he refers, taking the disconnected sentences he selects together with the context essential to convey their meaning and with related statements upon the same subject.
