The writer whose opinions on the subject of Christian Science are printed in a recent issue, is not original in his conclusion that if Christian Science were to dispense with everything wherein it appears to differ from his views, it might thereby become unobjectionable to persons of intelligence. A similar thought has been modestly put forth from time to time by not a few persons who have essayed to address the public on that theme.

Our critic is less commonplace, however, in the further assertion that Christian Science does appear to be coming around to his way of thinking,—is in fact "steadily changing front." Here is an important discovery, if true, because Christian Science is of vital concern to a large and constantly increasing body of men and women throughout the world. But when one comes to examine that which is offered in support of this rather startling conclusion, it is evident that not Christian Science, but only our friend's opinion in regard thereto, has changed.
