Palo Alto (Calif.) Times

Many things, good, bad, and indifferent, have been said of Christian Science. It has only remained for a recent critic to refer to this religion as an example of "a disintegration of the pure monotheism which the world inherited from Israel."

As a matter of fact, the doctrine that there is but one God is the central teaching of Christian Science, as will appear from almost any page of its literature. For example, Mrs. Eddy writes on page 331 of Science and Health: "God is individual, incorporeal. He is divine Principle, Love, the universal cause, the only creator, and there is no other self-existence." Again she says on page 207 of the same book: "There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can be no effect from any other cause, and there can be no reality in aught which does not proceed from this great and only cause. Sin, sickness, disease, and death belong not to the Science of being." From these quotations from Science and Health it will be seen that the Christian Science doctrine of the unreality of disease has its basis in pure monotheism.
