Signs of the Times

[From the Herald, San Diego, Calif., Nov. 15, 1923]

The Herald is in receipt of a communication from Douglas L. Edmonds of Los Angeles, representing the Christian Science Committee on Publication, in which he takes issue with a recent editorial in this journal. Believing in free speech and the right of all to be heard, we cheerfully print Mr. Edmonds' article. ... Naturally Mr. Edmonds is defending the particular church which he represents; and we frankly state that we think he represents the best there is in the church line. All the other churches are dealing in uncertain futures. They tell their followers that if they are good and obedient ... in this world, they will, as a reward, have a mansion in the next one. Christian Science tells its adherents that if they will harmonize with Principle, they will be happy, healthy, and prosperous. The confidence inspired in its followers by the teachings of Christian Science has helped many people ... into a contented and prosperous existence, which they could not have gained in any other way.
