Newark (N. J.) News

The sermon of the clergyman recently reported in the News on "Christian Science Wrongly So Called," displays such a fund of knowledge of things that are not so about Christian Science, that a correction is in order. Apparently our brother gleaned his information from critics of the movement, so it is not be wondered at that he should fail to deal with actual Christian Science, or that he should aim his shafts of ridicule at a veritable man of straw.

To say that "Christian Science is not Christian because it denies the existence of a personal God," is in the first place an outright misrepresentation of Christian Science teaching. On page 116 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy clearly states: "If the term personality, as applied to God, means infinite personality, then God is infinite Person,—in the sense of infinite personality, but not in the lower sense." And again on page 331 of the same work Mrs. Eddy writes: "Life, Truth, and Love constitute the tribune Person called God." How Deity can be less than infinite is inconceivable.
