Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication


In answer to the question, "Do you believe in divine healing?" the pastor of First Baptist Church of Lansdale replied partly as follows in the Norristown Times Herald of August 11, 1934: "The healing ministry of the Christian Science church cannot be ignored. Their constituency is largely made up of members of our various churches who have become Christian Scientists because that church has helped them physically. . . . To say that Christian Science does not heal is to ignore facts."

The progress that Christian Science is making in breaking down prejudice is evidenced also by our receiving several invitations from church organizations of other denominations to address their members. Two requests from colleges have also been received, one for an address on the subject of Christian Science and one for literature to be made available to students and for pictures of The Mother Church to be posted on the bulletin board of the college. One invitation came from the pastor of a church to address his congregation on the subject of tolerance, an invitation which was also extended to representatives of other denominations, with a view of showing what these religious organizations have in common and pointing out the needless and harmful barriers that prejudice produces between different denominations.
