The attack upon Christian Science by a clergyman is the more regrettable because Christian Science is the renascence of the religious system which Jesus of Nazareth established about two thousand years ago and upon which the creeds of all Christian denominations claim to be based, despite the radical differences that distinguish them and despite their failure to meet Christianity's most imperative requirement, namely, the healing of the sick by spiritual means. Any sincere student can prove to his entire satisfaction by demonstration that the Christianity of Jesus and the Christianity of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy are one and the same. Therefore an attack upon Christian Science amounts to an attack on Christ's Christianity.

It is not lack of preaching that is responsible for the world's seeming indifference to Christianity, but lack of practice. If professed Christians pray to God that the brotherhood of man may be established on earth, and forthwith erect barriers against its coming by violating the golden rule, they have only themselves to blame for the non-appearance of that happy day. The Christian Science text-book points out with invincible logic that a Christian cannot possibly be measured by his belief in a particular creed or dogma, but by his ability to be Christlike in his daily life. Deeds alone determine who is worthy to be called Christian, for Jesus said of his followers, "Ye shall know them by their fruits."
