The North Fork Times
An evangelist preaching in your city has devoted a portion of his time to attacks upon Christian Science and its Discoverer and Founder, Mrs. Eddy. The great Teacher in whose name the evangelist is presumed to come, commanded his followers to "preach the kingdom of God." Christ Jesus gave no instructions for any of his followers to attack and malign other disciples. On the contrary, he administered on one occasion a sharp rebuke to his disciples because they had taken upon themselves to stop the work of another, since, as they said, "he followeth not with us." Jesus said, "Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us." It is apparently difficult for some worthy people to see that genuine Christianity can be lived otherwise than according to their particular brand of theology.
To assert, as this evangelist is credited with saying, that Christian Science denies the existence of sin, or that it denies the divinity of Christ, is to display a profound ignorance of the subject he attempts to criticize. Christian Science teaches that sin exists to the human, corporeal senses, and will continue to exist so long as mortals believe in pleasure and pain in matter, and in a material existence apart from God. But Christian Science repudiates the false doctrine that God created sin or permitted it to exist, or that it is identified in any manner with divine reality, the kingdom of heaven. Jesus' prayer, "Deliver us from evil," proves the omnipotence of God and the consequent impotence of the mortal sense of evil. Christian Science teaches the divinity of Christ, and accepts the New Testament teachings that Christ Jesus is the Son of God. So clearly do Christian Scientists believe (understand) that Christ Jesus is the Son of God, that they follow his commands and prove his divine oneness with the Father, both in preaching the kingdom of God and in healing the sick.
