During the past fifty years it has occurred at times to a number of otherwise well-informed individuals to aver, as did a clergyman quoted in a recent issue, that Christian Science is not entitled to its name; that its adherents are deceived; that its teachings are unsocial, etc. Some of these gentlemen have caught the significance of the fact that increasingly large numbers of their fellow men have arrived and are arriving at conclusions directly the opposite of theirs. Others have not discerned this as yet. Happily, mankind as a whole has not been oblivious to the impelling logic of the fact that the opposition to Christian Science is all words, and its justification all deeds. On one side is assertion, on the other demonstration; on one side creed and dogma, on the other the manifest results of applied Christianity.
Of what avail is it to try to make people believe Christian Science is unsocial, when its constantly reiterated ideal is the golden rule; or that it is deceptive, when it asks no one to accept anything that cannot be proved in individual experience; or that it imperils the community in case of contagion, when not an epidemic has been traced to it half a century of practice; or that it is unchristian and unscientific, when it produces all the fruits of Christianity through the application of demonstrable knowledge? Christian Science is making notable progress in comparison with some other phases of religious endeavor, and one reason for this is that it offers not the mere promise of good, but the good itself.
