Newcastle (England) Journal

A clergyman in his lectures on "Christian Science," reported in recent issues of your paper said that "people could not accept the teaching of Christian Science and be loyal to our Lord." Does he mean by loyalty the acceptance of the interpretations of his particular church; for there are over one hundred sects all calling themselves Christian which have from the earliest times persecuted each other because they taught different things as Christian.

Christian Science is content to be judged by the test laid down in the New Testament, "Ye shall know them by their fruits." This religion is satisfying the spiritual needs of increasing numbers of people all over the world, and within its ranks are numbers of men who have been clergymen, doctors, and teachers of natural science. Many clergymen and ministers admit the debt of gratitude they owe to Christian Science in awakening them to the fact that they have neglected an important part of the teaching of our Lord. Christian Science is making practical to-day the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, and it has no fear of condemnation. If it is of God, nothing can overthrow it.
