From the author's introduction:
The most striking thing about Christian Science is its monstrous claims.

A writer in “Christian Science Sentinel” says, “No human being ever understood the mission of Jesus of Nazareth more dearly than Mrs. Eddy.” This is a shocking claim when we note the truths Jesus taught which Mrs. Eddy absolutely denied. Think of them! She denied:

Sin!

The Atonement!

Salvation through the Blood!

Need of Regeneration!

Personality in God — God is a Principle. A Principle cannot forgive, there is therefore no sin; no need of forgiveness for sin!

The Resurrection!

We believe Mrs. Eddy claimed also that she was the Woman of Revelation 12:1, of which we read, “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.”

Christian Science is capable of the most astounding presumptions and arrogant pretensions. We visited the “Mother Church” in Boston a few years ago. It is a magnificent structure. We believe it cost an immense sum of money — a million dollars, some have said. We were told that it attracts immense audiences. One of the astounding things about it was that on the panels of the walls were printed the words of Jesus Christ and then next the words of Mrs. Eddy. It seemed to us a bold piece of arrogant assumption, to put over against the words of Jesus Christ and alongside of them the words of such a woman as Mrs. Eddy whose life and career certainly did not bear any marks of the prophetic gift or calling.

We attended a Christian Science meeting. It was very simple. The two lady readers were good elocutionists. Again the arrogant assumptions of Christian Science showed themselves when one of the readers would read from the Scriptures and then the other would read from Mrs. Eddy, thus presuming to find said Scriptures explained and interpreted by said lady.

No other modern sect has ever presumed and assumed so much; or made such outrageous claims in relation to the Scriptures or the teachings of Christ as has Christian Science in the person of Mrs. Eddy.

It is our purpose in this writing to show the following.

1. That Christian Science as propagated by Mrs. Eddy did not originate with her. It was not a “discovery” but a “plagiarism.” It was not “original” but second-hand goods.

2. That unlike the Gospel of Christ it has been from the outset, a money making affair.

3. That Christian Science has no theology; but its teachings are the vagaries of Mrs. Eddy’s mind and are characterized by the most absurd misinterpretations of Scripture and the most arrogant claims.

4. That the Denials of Christian Science strike at the very heart of gospel doctrine.
