In a magnificent speech, the Prime Minister struck a note which the vicar of St. Stephen's church would do well to notice. Mr. Churchill said. "I rejoice to learn of the enormous progress that is being made among all religious bodies in freeing themselves from sectarian jealousies and feuds, while preserving fervently the tenets of their own faith."

The vicar has a perfect right to maintain the doctrine of the deity of Jesus, but he is surely not entitled to urge the Christian people of Colchester to adopt this particular doctrine of faith, especially when in doing so he endeavors to ridicule another Christian body, the Christian Scientists, whose faith is proved by their works, and whose church within a period of seventy years has grown more rapidly than any religious movement since the first century. There are other Christian bodies, for instance the Unitarians, who do not accept the doctrine of the deity of Jesus, and there is little doubt that if this question were put to the Free Churches as a whole, they would be widely divided on the point.
