The Tri-County News

The Tri-County News quotes a minister as having said in a sermon that Christian Scientists have no right to call themselves Christian "when they do not accept the divinity of Jesus Christ." Christian Scientists most emphatically accept the divinity of Christ Jesus. The second religious tenet of the Christian Science church, to which all persons joining this church subscribe before being accepted into its membership, is as follows:"We acknowledge and adore one supreme and infinite God. We acknowledge His Son, one Christ; the Holy Ghost or divine Comforter; and man in God's image and likeness" (Science and Health, p. 497). The last of the religious tenets of this church, found on the same page, is as follows: "And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure."

There is not a religious movement in all the world that exacts of its adherents the proofs of Christianity that the Christian Science movement exacts. Theirs is essentially a religion of works—the only true test by which one proves his worthiness to be called Christian.
