Long Branch (N. J.) Record

A sermon entitled "The Truth about Christian Science," reported in a recent issue of the Record, contains so many misstatements that it should not pass without correction. Indeed, the discourse travels so far from the truth that it is apparent our critic has given his attention to criticisms of Christian Science rather than to a study of Christian Science itself. It is quite evident, also, that the critic has forgotten the command of the Master, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."

Abuse of Mrs. Eddy is of course no argument against Christian Science, and intelligent people are apt to regard it as evidence of an intolerance which is all the more regrettable when expressed by one who is supposed to be an exponent of the golden rule. When with little trouble the facts about Mrs. Eddy's life may be obtained in almost any public library, there is no excuse whatever for a clergyman to "bear false witness" against one who has done so much to lift the burden of pain and sorrow and to redeem men and women from lives of sin and suffering.
