The Christian Science lecturer upon whose statements...

Arlington Advocate

The Christian Science lecturer upon whose statements a reverend gentleman comments in the February 20 issue of the Arlington Advocate, will be glad to know that the critic found "many beautiful and helpful suggestions" in the report of the lecture which he states he read with interest. Other points upon which agreement was not reached by the critic may not be as many as he supposes, for both the lecturer and he himself agree that spiritual healing has come down through the ages.

The clergyman attempts to prove that humanity does not need Christian Science as "healing disease without medicine has been accomplished for centuries" and asks wherein is the "discovery" claimed by Christian Science. He also takes issue with the name itself, claiming that it is "a misnomer to call any religion a science."

"Science," according to an authoritative definition (Practical Standard Dictionary), "is knowledge reduced to law and embodied in system." Christian Science is the knowledge of God, the knowledge of the operation of divine law, a knowledge which was possessed by Christ Jesus and utilized by him in the healing of sickness and sin, the rules and proof of which were given to this age by Mary Baker Eddy.
