St. Thomas (Ontario) Journal

"A violent attack" on Christian Science is reported in the Journal. Violence in dealing with the religious beliefs of one's respectable neighbors, who have the right to enjoy our common civil and religious liberty, is quite out of place in a pulpit. It is not Christian but anti-Christian to attack violently the sincere Christian views of others, and it is a sign of weakness. No one could characterize a Christian Science lecture as "a violent attack on the faith" of any denomination of professed Christians. These lectures are carefully prepared, and both in letter and in spirit are designed to state Christian Science correctly.

Christ Jesus gave this test of a Christian: "By their fruits ye shall know them;" and violence is not mentioned as one of the fruits of the Spirit,—"love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." The people who understand Christian Science literature consider it the best value in the world. Why should an outsider quarrel with the price? Christian Science lectures are free to the public,—no collection,—and every Christian Science church maintains a free reading-room and distributes Christian Science literature gladly to inquirers. Mrs. Eddy's books may be found in public libraries, and are also loaned at Christian Science reading-rooms.
