The Lectures

Biloxi, Miss. (Society).—Paul Stark Seeley, lecturer; introduced by Victor Kutchin, M. D., who said in part:—

In view of the fact that I am a member of the medical profession and naturally enough more or less antagonistic to Christian Science, and the additional fact that I am not a Christian Scientist, I deem it no small honor to have been selected to introduce the distinguished speaker of the evening. Generally speaking, the old religions had much in common; namely, the fear of death, and the use of life—this present life—to prepare for life beyond the grave: Speaking in a business way, they were all managed on a credit system, and for services rendered time checks were given that were to be cashed after the to-morrow of death. Now on the other hand Christian Science seems to be managed on a cash system—you get your pay here and now, and life in no sense is a preparation for death; for matter being a shadow and Love the one stupendous reality, death is vanquished, and happiness becomes the by-product of right thinking.
