Lewiston (Maine) Journal

A recent issue contains a statement to the effect that Christian Scientists deny the existence of pain and that suffering has a beneficent purpose. Also, the author of said statement implies the futility of treating pain and suffering by the Christian Science method.

Like some others, this gentleman has apparently given Christian Science very little thought, and has never studied it sufficiently to know what its teachings are, although he has not hesitated to publish his misconceptions of it, probably with the best intentions in the world. Therefore it will no doubt surprise our critic, and perhaps also some of his hearers and the readers of your esteemed paper, to know that Christian Science does not teach that mortals do not experience pain, are not sick, sinning, and dying; or that suffering has no beneficent effect.

We'd love to hear from you!
