Lake County Chronicle

Christian Science apparently is causing considerable perturbation to the local ministers, if one is to judge by the church notices appearing in a recent issue of the Chronicle. But why, one asks, should these good men become so exercised over the teachings of Christian Science? Have they forgotten Gamaliel's advice to the council: "And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God," and placed themselves in the position of the priests and elders who demanded the extinction of Paul because he was a "pestilent fellow"?

In Jesus' time many of the priests and elders, schooled in material wisdom and bound by their materialistic beliefs, were unable to understand his teachings and his explanation of God, and because they could not understand him they demanded his crucifixion. Their ignorance and bigotry, however, did not change the truth of Jesus' teachings, nor can all the ridicule and venom which is heaped upon Christian Science alter in the least the truth of its teachings.
