Kearney (Neb.) Times

Perhaps the principal cause of our reverend critic's failure to understand Christian Science is found in his inability to perceive the difference between the real and the unreal, and as this distinction constitutes the groundwork of Christian Science teaching, it is well worth our while to consider it. This pastor is not alone in regarding the teaching of the non existence of evil, sickness, and sorrow as an absurdity, and often the earnest searcher after something better than the husks he is feeding upon is diverted from a study of Christian Science at the outset, because pain and sin seem to him not only real, but so real that a denial of their existence is an indictment of the sanity of the whole teaching of Science.

In the first place let us approach the text—book of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, with a view to seeing what it actually teaches and not for the purpose of finding a spot which will seem to justify us in throwing it down and declaring the whole thing an absurdity. If Shakespeare's works had to undergo the grilling process to which Science and Health has been subjected, the bard of Avon would wish that Bacon had indeed been the author of his plays.
