Creston (Iowa) Advertiser-Gazette

The sermon reported in a recent issue, considered as a whole, is a kindly and tolerant review, in brief, of church history. Both the plea for the original unity of and the protest against divisions in the church, expressed in denominationalism, are well taken. Every genuine Christian to-day deplores the divisions among Christian people as "needless and useless." The clergyman rightly attributes the cause for this to "humanism" or personality, whereas the true church rests upon Principle as opposed to personality, and has always done so.

Allow me, however, to take issue with the gentleman in his mention of Mrs. Eddy. In doing so he shows clearly that he misapprehends Christian Science and misunderstands its Discoverer and Founder. He says: "The basis of all claims to divine authority for denominationalism will give place to Joe Smith, Dowie, Mrs. Eddy, and every other person coming before the world with claims and pretensions."
