Cripple Creek (Col.) Times-Record

Pamphlets misrepresenting Christian Science have been extensively circulated recently in your city, and I beg the courtesy of your space for brief comment. The method of attack will hardly commend itself to fair-minded persons. To attempt to poison the public mind by innuendo and far-fetched insinuations, with no personal responsibility for the falsehoods circulated, will hardly bear the test of the golden rule.

A favorite mode of attack of these pamphleteering critics is to compare isolated passages of Scripture with extracts from Mrs. Eddy's writings removed from their context, thus attempting to convey the impression that Science and Health perverts the teachings of the Bible. The unfairness of this proceeding is apparent to every unbiased thinker. Such a parallel can be employed to show that the Scriptures themselves are contradictory. The honest investigator strives to grasp the spirit and intent of the writer, not to distort his meaning by tearing statements from their context in order to bolster up a preconceived interpretation.
