Reasonableness of Christian Science

Christian Science, if it is investigated without prejudice, is found to be a reasonable religion. A perusal of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy cannot fail to give the reader information about God, man, and the universe to repay even the most casual reading; and earnest study has convinced a great multitude that Christian Science reveals the "pearl of great price."

Philosophies that teach optimism in human affairs but are not founded upon infallible divine Principle, fail to accomplish what their sponsors wish. It is well enough, and no doubt to a certain extent helpful, to encourage the sick with words of good cheer; but unless this word of cheer is backed by something more than the good wishes of its advocate, it is not likely to be of lasting benefit. Christian Science is substantial in its bestowals, and the one who mistakenly believes it to be merely a religion of optimism, which obtains its results by telling the sufferer there is nothing the matter with him, is far from understanding the truth about it.
