The Ogden (Utah) Standard

It seems difficult to comprehend how a Christian minister can spend his time trying to hinder the growth of a Christian religion because its exponents are not traveling the road to heaven that he is traveling and that he himself believes to be the right one. That one should do this in regard to Christian Science can only be accounted for by the fact that he lacks understanding of its teachings. If he were acquainted with many Christian Scientists, the lives they lead would be an object-lesson to him and would cause him to investigate more closely to find out what it is that makes them healthier, happier, and more contented than they had heretofore been.

Our friend does not distinguish between the spiritual man made in God's image and likeness and the Adam or mortal man. He takes exceptions to a published report of a Christian Science lecture recently delivered in Ogden where the lecturer stated: "We cannot imagine a sick God, and therefore man cannot be sick." God is Spirit and consequently is not subject to the ills of the flesh; neither is the spiritual man, the man made in His image and likeness. This is the man referred to in the lecturer's statement and not the mortal or sinning man who suffers for his sins.
