Sheffield (England) Telegraph

In a recent issue, under the subheading of "No Substitute for Christianity" a clergyman is reported as saying, "Around us to-day are confused and uncertain voices—Christian Science, spiritualism, theosophy, and other substitutes for Christ and Christianity. These offer rest to weary souls, but fail to give it."

There is nothing confused or uncertain about the voice of Christian Science. It declares that it is possible to heal the sick, save the sinner, and comfort the sorrowing through prayer to-day, as in the time of Jesus; and grateful thousands acknowledge that it has done and is doing this, thus proving that it is not a substitute for Christianity, but the Christianity established by the great Master. In the words of Mrs. Eddy in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 138), "Jesus established in the Christian era the precedent for all Christianity, theology, and healing. Christians are under as direct orders now, as they were then, to be Christlike, to possess the Christ-spirit, to follow the Christ-example, and to heal the sick as well as the sinning."
