The American Evangelist in Siloam Springs (Ark.) Register

An article all the way through, in several issues of The American Evangelist makes light of God, of the Bible, of Jesus, of Mary his mother, and of the divine Principle of righteousness. It particularly mentions Mrs. Eddy, Christian Science, and Christian Scientists in a most rude, sarcastic, evil way. That piece in a religious paper is like an ink splotch on a snow white garment. It does not belong in The American Evangelist. All well-informed people know that Mrs. Eddy was a Christian woman; they know that Christian Science, which she discovered, heals all manner of sin and disease by a thorough understanding of exactly what Jesus meant when he said: "And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." A religion which does that demands respectful consideration.

Like all other Christians, Christian Scientists believe in God; they believe in Jesus the Christ, and that he is the Son of God; they believe in the Holy Ghost; they believe in the Bible and that it is the Word of God. On page 547 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy says this: "The Scriptures are very sacred." That is what all Christians believe, and The American Evangelist preaches the truth from this same Book. . . . In its purpose to preach the gospel, The American Evangelist, we believe, does not in its heart have the time, the desire, or the intention to depart from telling the glad tidings from God of "on earth peace, good will toward men."
