Sgt. Dalton's Weekly

A recent issue contains an article criticizing Christian Science. It undertakes to attack a great religious movement of which it is evident the critic knows but very little, although it is a movement which he admits is growing with great rapidity. This movement had its inception in America; and it has always stood for the highest ideals in American life and character. He who would undertake in these times to say what is and what is not heresy is indeed bold; but if it is heresy to practice the teachings of the Master, to walk in his footsteps and to obey his commands to heal the sick and the sinful, then we must say in behalf of Christian Science, as did Paul when he was accused of being a pestilent fellow: "And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city: neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets."

Christian Science has nothing in common with spiritualism; in fact, spiritualism is the very opposite of Christian Science. Mrs. Eddy devotes a whole chapter in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" to prove the fact. Christian Science is not merely theoretical; it is distinctly practical, and follows closely the teachings of the Bible, including the injunctions of the master Christian contained therein.
