Buffalo (N. Y.) Express

When Peter questioned John's ability to work out his salvation in the right way, Jesus rebuked Peter, saying, "What is that to thee? follow thou me." In other words, the Master gave Peter to understand that if he was going to be a consistent and scientific Christian he would have to stop meddling with other people's affairs and devote himself to the more effective and profitable task of making Christianity the governing influence in his own affairs.

Peter's case was not an isolated one. It stands out merely as a striking example of that propensity of the human mind which busies itself more in trying to correct the faults of others than it does in trying to correct its own. A more recent illustration is the case of a writer whose sweeping denunciations of Christian Science and of all other religious systems but his own have from time to time appeared in your columns, including a recent issue.
