Christian Science insists upon the absolute necessity of overcoming and destroying sinful habits and sinful desires in order to escape from their terrible consequences. Hence, when a clergyman, evidently referring to Christian Science, protests, as reported, against reducing "the sins of men to a mere hallucination of the mortal mind," and implies that Christian Science "gets people to think lightly of sin," and supposes that Christian Science causes people to become more sinful and careless in regard to sin and its consequences, he is making a great mistake; for the very contrary is the fact.

The success of Christian Science lies in this, that it enables people to overcome sin and its consequences in themselves and in others, who had not been able to do so by any other teaching. It is its efficacy in this respect that calls forth the praise of so many thousands to God for the freedom obtained through its spiritual teaching, and the many expressions of gratitude to its Discoverer and Founder, Mrs. Eddy. It is this very success that causes its growth, and brings forth the criticisms of those who misapprehend its teaching; for no one, it may be assumed, having the interests of mankind at heart, would knowingly withhold from them the knowledge of any practical measure of salvation from sin and its direful consequences as manifested in sickness and disease.
