Shepherdstown Register

While I have no desire to enter into a controversy with persons who disagree with the teachings of Christian Science, yet I feel it my duty to reply to certain statements made by a writer in the Register, in an article entitled, "The Christian Science Discussion."

The writer made statements about Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, which were not only misleading, but also unkind and untrue. He also stated that Christian Science is not scientific; that it was not discovered by Mrs. Eddy, but is based on what is now becoming a somewhat popular philosophy, and intimated that the Christian Science interpretation of the words of the Master with regard to healing is unsound.

It is well known that the greatest benefactors of the world have ever been criticized and condemned. It was said of Christ Jesus, the purest and best man that ever trod the earth, that he was a gluttonous man, and a winebibber; and many other evil things were claimed about him by those who did not understand his teaching and the healing which was its direct result. The New Testament was translated into English by William Tyndale, and this great reformer was imprisoned and later burned at the stake. The supreme test for those who have engaged in religious works is that given by the Master when he said, "Ye shall know them by their fruits."
