Echo vom Thunersee

In your issue of September 30, in the article "The Appropriation of Faith and Salvation," Christian Science was mentioned, concerning which the writer of the article says: "There is a grain of truth in these things. Only that it was not necessary to found a new sect. For Jesus, our Redeemer and Lord of the Church, was cognizant of these hidden possibilities. Besides that, he called our attention to them. Unfortunately we do not heed them sufficiently. We do not mean anything but right prayer."

The author is to some extent right. Why, then, has Christian Science its own church? It came about in the following manner. More than fifty years ago when Mary Baker Eddy appealed to the public, not one of the numerous religious denominations of America would have anything to do with her teaching, or acknowledge that it contained the truth. So Mrs. Eddy founded The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which today has more than two thousand five hundred branch churches and societies.
