Colorado Springs (Colo.) Gazette

"The Bible Against Christian Science," the caption of a recent newspaper notice of a church service, is so directly misleading that, as a matter of justice, a word of correction is offered. The very first of the religious tenets of Christian Science, as written by Mrs. Eddy on page 497 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," states that "as adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life." That is definite enough, so far as words go; but Christian Science goes even farther in accepting unreservedly the test of Christian discipleship given by Christ Jesus when he said, "By their fruits ye shall know them."

Christian Science has widely spread and has been accepted by many, earnest Bible students because it has furnished them with the fruits of sickness healed, of sin destroyed, and of spiritual understanding, comfort, and cheer made manifest, even as the Bible promises. These works of Christian Science constitute indisputable refutation of the intimation that the Bible and Christian Science are opposed.
