A clergyman in a recent address makes the mistake of classifying Christian Science with spiritualism and psychology, and dubs it a freak religion.

In these days when Christianity is challenged by paganism and other non-Christian doctrines, it is right for the general public to know on which side Christian Science is ranged, and whether it subscribes to the ethics of genuine Christianity.

Christian Science is based on the Bible, and its ethics expresses the pure primitive model of original Christianity. It would be difficult to find in so few words a more concise definition of Christian lore than is contained in the sixth tenet of this religion as given on page 497 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, which reads as follows: "And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure." If the reverend gentleman can find anything unchristian in this statement, then he calls to the bar the whole Christian world, and stands as its self-styled critic.
