Geneva (Neb.) Signal

An evangelist at the Methodist church is reported to have said, "Who ever heard Christian Science preach repentance?" The answer is, Everybody who ever heard anything about Christian Science. Of course Christian Scientists do not revive the superstitions of the dark ages or resort to evangelistic methods, but it can hardly be said they are not reforming the lives of men and women and bringing peace where before was turmoil. If by repentance is meant "to cease to love and practise sin," then Christian Science is full of the call to repentance.

The old idea of repentance was for one to confess to a lot of crimes he never committed, carefully avoiding the thing that was keeping him out of the kingdom of heaven. The fact is that Christian Science teachings differ from other religions in placing emphasis upon the necessity of ceasing to practise sin.
