Hamilton (Ontario, Canada) Spectator
In the report of a sermon the preacher referred to Christian Science as if it were a form of New Thought. Kindly permit me to say that a careful study of Christian Science shows it to be essentially different from any form of so-called New Thought. Christian Science claims to be the Science of Christianity, and to elucidate in systematic, literary form the Principle and the practice of Christ Jesus, including the healing of sickness. Christian Science offers no substitute for Christ Jesus, whose work as the Messiah it recognizes to be unique and God-crowned. His position as the Exemplar is most exalted, and is seen more clearly as we learn that his example is the standard of right living for all time.
The preacher proposes as "an acid test" this statement by St. John: "Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God." Commenting on the Scriptural text, "The word was made flesh," Mrs. Eddy has written in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 350): "Divine Truth must be known by its effects on the body as well as on the mind, before the Science of being can be demonstrated. Hence its embodiment in the incarnate Jesus,—that life-link forming the connection through which the real reaches the unreal, Soul rebukes sense, and Truth destroys error."
