The Charleston (S. C.) American

The report of a sermon delivered recently quotes the clergyman as saying, "The Christian Scientist seeks to escape by refusing to acknowledge the existence of sorrow and death." No one realizes more fully than the Christian Scientist that he cannot escape any necessary experience, but worshiping a God who is "universal, eternal, divine Love, which changeth not and causeth no evil, disease, nor death" (Science and Health, p. 140), he finds these experiences illegitimate, having no part in true being. Recognizing them, however, as incidental to mortal life, he meets and overcomes each discordant sense as it presents itself through firm adherence to the law of divine Love. From this warfare with false beliefs there is no possible escape; but victory comes only through recognition of one God, one law, and that law unerring good.
