Linn County Budget
A few days ago we heard a minister of the gospel mention the fact that as he goes about his pastoral duties he finds so many people who are ill and in pain. Indeed we hear much of the suffering of humanity in this sin sick world, and with our own eyes we can see that it is a fact. And when the suffering of first one friend and then another has been relieved by death, most of our clergymen seek to bring consolation to the bereaved by saying that our loss is the doings of the Almighty, the mysterious workings of Providence.
This never appealed to the writer, and in a little volume handed to us by a stranger not long ago we discovered that Christian Scientists differ from orthodox Christians by refusing to blame God for the death of our dear ones. Neither do they look upon sickness and suffering as the discipline of our heavenly Father.
For years the writer has always been ashamed of himself every time he has contracted a cold, and as the years go by he finds himself less troubled with these unnecessary derangements of our physical body. To us it seems like the result of simple ignorance or carelessness.
