The Urvada (Col.) Enterprise

The public announcement of a sermon entitled, "The Christian Science Delusion," may have aroused some mild curiosity among the uninformed, but those who know of Christian Science teaching and practice, have found it to be the very opposite of delusion, or false belief; yea, they have found it to be the truth which has made them free, as Christ Jesus promised.

The announcement designated this sermon as "a timely warning against this dangerous cult which undermines the very foundations." This sermon is probably about as "timely" as any detraction of Christ's Christianity could be, and is in fact quite as timely as was the clerical opposition which was aroused by the teaching and practice of Christ Jesus. Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 54): "If that Godlike and glorified man were physically on earth to-day, would not some, who now profess to love him, reject him? Would they not deny him even the rights of humanity, if he entertained any other sense of being and religion than theirs? The advancing century, from adeadened sense of the invisible God, to-day subjects to unchristian comment and usage the idea of Christian healing enjoined by Jesus; but this does not affect the invincible facts." The "invincible facts" are that Christ Jesus both taught and proved his teaching by healing in accordance with God's immutable, ever operative law of harmony and perfection, which has ever been shown to be the law of annihilation to everything unlike God, good. In his endeavor to point out the divine source of his words and works the Master iterated and reiterated that all who would believe on, understand, the divine Principle of all reality, should do the same works or present the same proofs of this understanding as he did. That Jesus' promises are not mere mockeries is proved by Christian Science; for thereby the sick are healed of all manner of diseases, the sorrowing are comforted, and the sinning are reclaimed.
