Cannon City (Col.) Record

A paper purporting to be for Bible students, which was widely distributed in Canon City recently, referred to Christian Science as having been brought forward by Satan with a view to confusing the people and leading them away from the truth. It is indeed passing strange that Satan should be credited with bringing forth the very teaching that not only posits but proves the powerlessness, yea, the utter nothingness, of Satan and all evil, including sickness and sorrow, fear and lack, as well as sin. That Christian Science does this is now an acknowledged or indisputable fact, even where its method of accomplishment is not understood.

Inasmuch as the carnal mind is ever the same, it is interesting to note that when the Pharisees could no longer deny the healings wrought by Christ Jesus, they attempted to discredit him by saying that he cast out devils by the prince of devils, which is just another way of saying that Satan had sent forth Jesus to confuse the people. The Master refuted this lie with the self-evident truth, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; . . . and if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?"
