TALKS ON CHRISTIAN SCIENCE
Virgil O. Strickler Explains Tenets of
That Church to 1,004) in the
One thousand persons in fne Majestic
theatre Inst night heard Virgil O.
Strickler. of New York City, give a
lecture explaining the teachings of the
Christian Science Church. Mr. .Strick
ler was introduced by Roy E. Bignall,
of Harrisburg. The talk was under the
auspices of tlia Chnstian Scientists of
Harrisburg. .Mr. Strickler said, in part:
"Christian Science makes available
as a present right and possibility man's
inheritance as the sou and heir of God
by showing that the. real man created
by God is spiritual and not material;
that his life, continuity, intelligence
and harmony are in hpirit and not in
matter; that all of his qualities and
attributes are derived from Spirit, and
that every function of the real man is
governed by the divine Mind.
''Man, therefore, expresses the di
vine nature, and hence he is the image
of God, and a. J such is perfect and im
mortal. The material man is not the
likeness of God, for matter cannot be
the image of Spirit, tie is the false
concept of man, and the sin, disease
and death involved in this false con
cept will disappear as false mortal be
liefs are dissolved by truth. The ma
terial belief must give place to the
spiritual fact in every case.
"Out of the amplitude of her own
spiritual understanding Mrs. Eddy has
translated into human language the
truth about God and man, and their re- '
lationship; has revealed a perfect di
vine Principle that governs mankind,
and has proved that the truth taught
by Jesus is scientific and may be dem
onstrated to-day as of old to deliver the
sinning, sorrowing and suffering from
their oppressors, to set all mankind free
from bondage of evil, and to establish
the kingdom of God on earth."
