The Philadelphia (Pa.) Inquirer
A certain evangelist has ventured to attack the Christian Scientists, but any one at all familiar with the teachings of their faith cannot fail to recognize that it is founded on Christ as the Wayshower. If they believe in Christ, why does this gentleman feel called upon to interfere? Here is a religion that is concededly spreading in a wonderful manner all over the world. Those who practise it explain that they are attempting nothing new, but are merely striving to get back to the days of Christ and to follow his precepts day by day. They claim to have what they call a "demonstrable" religion, and point to practical results as their proof. Christ healed from both sin and disease. It is their contention that his command for his disciples to go and do likewise—to follow in Christ's footsteps—is in force today just as it was centuries ago. The evangelist may not believe this, but the Christian Scientists do, and in one of the most remarkable speeches ever delivered on the floor of Congress, Senator Works of California not long ago discoursed on this injunetion, and gave instance after instance of most astonishing results obtained by putting faith in it. The evangelist might be broadened somewhat, and perhaps feel less inclined to criticize others, if he would get that speech, delivered early in January, and read it.
