Christian Science does not express a mere current belief. It is a firmly established system of thought, represented by an organization founded upon an understanding of and faith in God, and of the law of God, which results in the healing of sin, sickness, and disease. Its ministry is world-wide; its beneficiaries number hundreds upon hundreds of thousands. It has nothing fantastic or mysterious about it. It is the restoration of primitive Christianity, which, as every one knows, included healing as an integral part of the Christian religion.

Sophistry is defined as being "fallacious reasoning; reasoning sound only in appearance." This is a rash word to apply to Christian Science, whose clear, logical reasoning is capable of being sustained by proof by any one who honestly follows its rules and puts them to the test. Its reasoning has for its Christian foundations the omnipresence and omnipotence of God; and the result of such reasoning is a demonstrable faith in God, in divine Love, which restores the lost element of Christian healing. Since the advent of Christian Science, it is being increasingly acknowledged by thinking Protestant clergy that a Christian should be able to show his faith by his works as much now as in the days of the early church. Christian Scientists remember the last words of the tender, compassionate Savior, who, after telling his disciples what signs should follow them that believed, said, "Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world." This Christ-presence, undiscerned by the physical senses, is here to-day; and the recognition of it, which confers such health and freedom, comes through the clear reasoning which is found in the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy.
