Alton (Ill.) Times
My attention has been called to the Times of recent date, in which an evangelist is reported as having ridiculed the contention of Christian Scientists that material things are unreal. In doing this our critic should be aware that he is ridiculing not only Christian Scientists, but also some of the most advanced physical scientists, whose recent conclusions reduce the material atom to "centers of force." Since force is not matter, they have explained matter by explaining it away. With physicists as well as Christian Scientists against him, he is on too uncertain ground to warrant ridicule. He also undertakes to ridicule the payment of "real dollars" for cures involving the unreality of matter. He is apparently more concerned about the dollars than either the practitioners or the patients. If a real cure of serious disease can be paid for in dollars at all, there is but one kind of dollars that would be adequate.
Christian Scientists can extend to the evangelist no better wish than that the beneficiaries of his efforts to do good in the world may have cause for as sincere gratitude as those who in the last two score or more years have turned to Christian Science for the healing of sin, sorrow, or disease.
