Christian Scientists the world over, it is asserted, testify that having the Mind of Christ is the goal toward which they are daily striving, but which they could not find as the aim of the churches they left. Is the church afraid to venture on the purely spiritual life which all people crave? it is asked. To save itself it resorts to every kind of attraction to interest people. It deals with social, civic, economic, and political reforms, suggests large schemes for evangelizing the entire world, and uses newspaper space freely to advertise its specialties. Look abroad and say in what denominational church ninety per cent of its members attend the mid-week prayermeeting, as is true of the Scientists. It is folly to ignore these phenomena. If the average churches cannot draw their people as the Christian Science church does, then it is time to search for the true germ, which the Scientists appear to have found, and inoculate the Protestant religion with its properties.
How the Scientist rejoices in his affiliation! At the California Club in Los Angeles the other evening a prominent member of the Progressive party, whose recent adoption of Christian Science has transformed his life, appeared transfigured by the new faith that obsessed him. What it had wrought for him was his sole topic of discourse at the dinnertable, and although he apologized for monopolizing the conversation, there was no apology for the subject-matter. We were impressed by the notable change in our friend's demeanor. What Christian Science has done for him it has done for countless others, and we are not disposed to scoff at a religion that has accomplished such wonders and is so powerful a factor in the lives of so many hundreds of thousands of people whose spiritual unrest and bodily sickness have been dissipated by the acceptance of the theology of Christian Science.
