The Hustler

In a recent issue of The Hustler is an article reporting a sermon by a visiting evangelist in which he took occasion to speak unkindly of Christian Scientists. As quoted by the paper, he made no effort to tell what Christian Science is, but contented himself with calling Christian Scientists "highcollared," "stiff-necked," and the like. Thinking people during these serious times do not attend church to be amused by a low order of wit. When their loved ones are being called from the home to the battle field with its dread and uncertainty, people are rather desiring to hear the solemn and assuring words of truth, the truth that gives freedom and peace.

Christian Scientists the world over are daily striving to show forth in their lives the spirit and the mind of Christ Jesus. They are exalting his words and deeds, and are striving to obey his command to preach the gospel and to heal the sick. They understand that the scientific and spiritual sense of blood is sacrifice. In the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," on page 25 Mrs. Eddy says of Jesus, "His true flesh and blood, were his Life; and they truly eat his flesh and drink his blood, who partake of that divine Life."
