If Christian Science was what our clergyman critic would...

The Seneca (Kan.) Tribune

If Christian Science was what our clergyman critic would have others believe it to be, it would not have its following of hundreds of thousands of intelligent people. The learned professor, the unprejudiced clergyman, the eminent lawyer, the fair-minded physician, and the layman, also the inebriate and the infidel, have found spiritual regeneration and physical healing in Christian Science.

Our critic says, "Christian Science opposes the Bible in denying the plenary inspiration and authoritative character of the Bible." On page 110 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes: "In following these leadings of scientific revelation, the Bible was my only textbook. The Scriptures were illumined; reason and revelation were reconciled, and afterwards the truth of Christian Science was demonstrated." On page 497 of the same book the first religious tenet to which all members of the Christian Science church subscribe reads, "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life."
