The evangelist whom your paper reports as making the statement that Christian Science is of the devil, seems to be giving himself needless trouble, for if it is of the devil, whom Jesus pronounced a liar, the more that people understand of it the less it will draw them; whereas in fact those who understand Christian Science best, love it most, and its crities often understand it the least. Hence in the course of time the reverend brother may find that his disobedience to the wise counsel of Gamaliel, as given in the fifth chapter of Acts, will leave him fighting against God, for "if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it."

Christian Science, being of God, concerns itself with bringing godlikeness into the lives of men, by better morals, better conditions of health, happier view-points, and more compassionate motives. Proofs of this are to be found in living witnesses in practically every village and city; in the literature of the cause; in its great daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, a successful international daily paper that prints whatever is good because that alone is ultimately true; and in the reverent use which every Christian Scientist makes of the Scriptures, or Word of God, in which we have a record of the growth of the spiritual idea during many centuries.
