In the "Points from the Pulpit" column a clergyman is reported to have said, "Practically every religious crank of today had his prototype at the end of the first century—the ancestors of theosophists, Christian Scientists, and all the rest."

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in her book "No and Yes" (p. 13), has stated, "No greater opposites can be conceived of, physically, morally, and spiritually, than Christian Science, spiritualism, and theosophy." Christian Science is a religion based solely upon the Bible, including the words and works of Christ Jesus. Certainly the thousands throughout the world who have been healed of all manner of sin and sickness through Christian Science, and who understand it sufficiently well to demonstrate it for themselves and others—and as a result, have become healthier, better, and more useful citizens—cannot be spoken of as "religious cranks." Our Master declared, "By their fruits ye shall know them," and from this standard Christian Science can be rightly judged. The good Christian Science has done, and is doing is recognized by many outside the movement.
