Truth Unalterable

A Number of years ago, in a conversation with a minister of one of the churches in a large city, the subject of Christian Science and its activities was considered, since the one who approached the minister was asking for a letter of fellowship to the Christian Science church from the church to which the minister was then giving his efforts in behalf of mankind. This gentleman remarked that he hoped his church would always think kindly toward any who were following Christ, and gave assurance that the letter would be forthcoming. He also said he had great respect for the author of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and he thought there were lots of good things in Christian Science, but had concluded that if it were modified somewhat it would meet a greater need and be much more universally accepted!

How typical of mortal mind and its beliefs were these remarks! In looking up the definition of the word "modify," we find it means "to change somewhat the form or qualities of." Is not this just what error would like to do, — change somewhat the form or qualities of Truth, so that it would seem that error had as much right to place as Truth?
