The Greensburg (Pa.) Record

The statement accredited to an evangelist in a recent issue gives one the impression that he felt called upon to say something startling against Christian Science in defense of his generally repudiated doctrine of a personal devil, and whether it had an intelligent meaning or not did not matter. It is safe to say, without serious risk of mistake, that neither the evangelist nor any of his auditors knew what he meant, and the statement could have no meaning as applied to Christian Science. Christian Science was discovered by Mrs. Eddy in 1866, through a revelation of Truth which came to her while reading the Bible and instantaneously restored her to perfect health from a condition believed fatal by her friends. Mrs. Eddy afterward made known her discovery to the world, and it is proving itself to be the greatest blessing that has ever come to mankind, having healed many thousands of hopeless invalidism and of so-called incurable diseases by revealing the truth contained in the Scriptures.

Christian Scientists do not, as claimed by the evangelist, find it necessary to deny the virgin birth of Jesus, or the cross, in order to remove a wart from the index finger. Far from denying what is good or true in the Scriptures, they can and do affirm the truth of the Bible and the teaching of the Master by the very works which Christ Jesus said should "follow them that believe." There is no better way of affirming such truth.
