A recent issue published an abstract of a clergyman's midday address, in which he takes occasion to attack Christian Science. Apparently he has certain misconceptions of what this teaching is.

Christian Science certainly is a "revival of an ancient Christian practice," for it follows the example and command of Jesus to heal the sick; it continues the ministry of healing of the apostles and the early Christian church; and, whilst this is not all and Christian Scientists do not attribute to physical healing the exclusive importance that our critic would suggest, they do maintain that it is the demonstration of the correctness of their teaching. Did not Jesus answer the messengers of John the Baptist, who came with the query, "Art thou he that should come," by the evidence of his healing works? The nearest approach to the definition of a Christian that the Bible contains is given in Jesus' own words as recorded by St. John, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also."
