I am thankful even for his allusion to truth; it being

18a modification of silence on this subject, and also of what had been said when critics attacked me for supplying the word Science to Christianity, — a word which the people

21are now adopting.    

The next step for ecclesiasticism to take, is to admit that all Christians are properly called Scientists who

24follow the commands of our Lord and His Christ, Truth; and that no one is following his full command without this enlarged sense of the spirit and power of Christianity.
