The Alliance (Ohio) Review and Leader

If our friendly critic is correctly reported, there are some things said deserving of commendation, and some things that need correction. He is reported as saying that "there were many things the church might learn from Christian Science, including greater loyalty to the Bible, more faithful testimony to the power and grace of Jesus Christ, the value and privilege of prayer, and last, but not least, the potency of a holy life." We appreciate this statement, together with his admission that Christian Science heals the sick. This fact is now quite generally conceded.

While Christian Scientists are most grateful for the physical healing of disease, our friend is wrong if he thinks they give more emphasis to physical healing than to spiritual. That people are healed of physical disease is not the only reason for the growth of the Christian Science church. In most instances the greater joy that comes to Christian Scientists is due to the fact that the teachings of Science and Health satisfy the deepest spiritual needs of men. In the light of Christian Science the Bible is more precious than before this truth was made known. A teaching that leads its followers to have greater confidence in God and the promises of Christ Jesus cannot be opposed to Christianity.
