Red Deer (Alberta) Advocate

The gentleman, "J. B.," who criticizes Christian Science, makes a correct statement—amid his many incorrect—when he writes, "Nowhere in Christian Science teaching can I find a full, uncompromising acknowledgment that Christ is God." There are, on the contrary, both in Jesus' teachings and in Christian Science, quite a few uncompromising acknowledgments of the fact that Christ is not God, but that he is the Son of God.

One instance may be given. The disciples had spoken to Christ Jesus about the many different opinions held as to who he was, and the Master, in order to test his disciples' understanding, asked: "But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven."
