Washington (Ind.) Herald

Christian Science is proving the truth of the Master's statement, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also," by healing the sick and reforming the sinner; and in the cry of "devil," humbug," "fraud," "imposition," and the like, we are reminded of the Scriptural account of the Pharisees' accusation that the great Master cast out devils "by Beelzebub the prince of the devils." That Christian Science healings are the work of God is proved beyond cavil in the almost numberless testimonies that have been printed in the Christian Science periodicals and given by the spoken word in public testimony meetings.

There are also large numbers of these same people, and many others, who are giving testimony through purer and nobler living that Christian Science heals sin and destroys the love of it. The fallacy of attempting to detract from these healings by saying that they are accomplished through mental suggestion, will become apparent to any investigator who will read impartially the chapter entitled Animal Magnetism Unmasked, in the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy; and also the discussion of the subject in a number of places in her other writings. Mrs. Eddy makes it very clear that one can practise Christian Science only as he has ceased to practise mental suggestion.

The claim that Christian Science is not Christian contrasts widely with the fact that it is based on the teachings and works of Christ Jesus as set forth in the Scriptures. We must insist that preaching the omnipresence and omnipotence of God, divine Love, and healing the sick as one of the "signs following," is the highest type of Christianity. We must insist, too, that such works are scientific,—Christianly scientific because they are accomplished through the operation of spiritual laws as revealed by Christ Jesus. These laws are found in the spiritual import of the Word and are clearly explained in the Christian Science text-book.
