An evangelist's reported attack upon what he calls "Modern Misbeliefs," places Christian Science in an improper light. The statement was made, with more feeling than elegance, that the teachings of Christian Science are as "garbage" placed "before the souls of thoughtful men and women." If our brother expects this to be accepted at its face value, how does he account for the fact that thousands of thoughtful men and women who have accepted these teachings and put them into daily practice, have become better citizens and neighbors, more loving and kind in the home and in their dealings with their fellows, more honest and successful in business? "Ye shall know them by their fruits," Jesus said, in that wonderful address known as the Sermon on the Mount. "Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? . . . A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit."
If Christian Science resembled in any degree that which its critics say it is, it would deserve the harsh things they have said about it. But as long as the experience of those who are striving to follow the Master as they are taught in Christian Science, coincides with the declaration of St. Paul to the Galatina church, so long must Christian Science be judged by its fruits. "The fruit of the Spirit," Paul wrote, "is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance." What has been our critic's Christian experience? Does it bear out the apostle's statement?
