"Omnipotence and omnipresence of God"

A recent editorial in the Sentinel called attention to the by-law of The Mother Church in which Mrs. Eddy impresses upon Christian Scientists the necessity for practitioners to be humanitarians. Since that editorial was published there has come to us a letter written to one in need of healing, by one the validity of whose claim to be a Christian Science practitioner may be judged from the quotation which follows:—

"The word sin means intentional mental mistake, and in this light, it is a sin to be miserly, or stingy, and while I do not say that these are present in your case, yet they have been present in nearly all the cases of palsy that I have handled, sometimes in a slight degree, but usually in a great degree. If you cannot find any one that can handle your case successfully, you may write me again, and I will take it up, but my price for a case that takes as much time as palsy is one hundred dollars per month, and the time it takes is from three to six months, to teach the patient enough of Science so that he can get rid of the trouble."
