Winchester (Ky.) Democrat

The author of an article relating to Christian Science, after quoting the signs which Christ Jesus said should evidence the understanding of his teaching (see Mark xvi. 17, 18), continued as follows: "I am curious to know why Mrs. Eddy and others have selected the fifth of the above named signs to the exclusion of the other four."

In reply to this query I would say that Mrs. Eddy accepted all of the verses in question and that she did not exclude any part of them. They read as follows: "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
