The St. Lucie County Tribune

In the editorial on Sunday school work your readers are warned against heresies and various isms, among which Christian Science is included. Christian Science teaches that human opinion emanates from the mortal or "carnal mind," which Paul said was "enmity against God." The statement is made that Christian Science is "nearer Brahmanism than Christianity in theology" and that "it has not the first principles of a science worthy the name." The fact that Christian Science is classed with Brahmanism by the minister shows conclusively that he is not familiar with the two teachings, as no similarity exists between them.

It is admitted that every one wants the truth that Jesus said would make us free,—free from sin and sickness. When this is accomplished, then we can say, "Now are we the sons of God." Jesus proved his gospel by his works. To show that he expected the same of his followers he said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." When John sent messengers to Jesus to inquire if he was the Christ, the Master referred them to his witnesses—the healings. Two of the main reasons for the great growth and prosperity of the Christian Science church are: That the gospel as taught and practised in Christian Science heals the sick and saves the sinner the same today as it did in the first century. Second, that Christian Scientists are taught to be "doers of the word, and not hearers only." We think that if the full gospel were taught and practised without dogmatism and division by other Christians there would be less reason among the clergy for fearing Christian Science.
