Woonsocket (R. I.) Call

If the remarks of a certain minister at the recent meeting of the Franklin Grange were as reported, they certainly need correction in so far as they referred to Christian Science, Classifying Christian Science with theosophy and spiritism, it is stated that the speaker "spoke at length of his experiences as a student of these cults, especially Christian Science." To associate Christian Science with such philosophy indicated clearly that our friend has been a very poor student of Christian Science; for it is not difficult for one who has caught even a mere glimpse of the fundamentals of Christian Science to see that it has nothing in common with such teachings.

Christian Science is based absolutely upon the teachings of Christ Jesus. To be sure, Christian Science does represent "the seeking of mankind for an understanding of the inner meaning of events," and the beauty of it all is that Christian Science furnishes this understanding, as every true Christian Scientist has realized. But to say that the Founder and followers of Christian Science have "only a partial knowledge of what is taught and understood in the established Christian churches," is absurd. By "established Christian churches," it is presumed that the speaker referred to the Christian churches which were established prior to the establishment of the Christian Science church in 1879, for certainly the Christian Science church is recognized by all well-informed people as an established Christian church in the fullest sense.
