Examiner, Peterboro

I have read with interest your report, in part, in a recent issue of a clergyman's sermon in St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. His otherwise splendid effort is somewhat marred by the unfortunate and distinctly erroneous conclusion he draws that Christian Science is an example of the false doctrines of Satan. Christian Science is founded wholly on the Bible, and especially on the teachings of Christ Jesus, and is affording proof of its usefulness by bringing forth fruits commensurate with the signs which Christ Jesus said "shall follow them that believe." No well-informed person will hesitate to acknowledge, at least to some degree, the good accomplished by Christian Science. Does not a well-known Scriptural writer ask: "Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries?"

Every honest endeavor to emulate the words and works of the Master is surely commendable and worthy of kindly consideration on the basis of the Golden Rule. As this is seen and acknowledged, all Christians of whatever denomination can and will reiterate the loving words of Abraham as he parted from Lot, "Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, . . . for we be brethren."
