Vital Issues in Christian Science: A Record of Unsettled Questions Which Arose in the Year 1909, between the Directors of the Mother Church, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts, and First Church of Christ, Scientist, New York City

By Augusta E. Stetson | Go to book overview

CHAPTER. XVIII
POSITION OF THE SIXTEEN PRACTITIONERS

OUT of the twenty-six practitioners who had had their offices in First Church of Christ, Scientist, New York City, nineteen adhered to their original position in supporting the teachings which they had received from Mrs. Stetson, as being in accord with the writings of the Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.

Four stages in treatment of practitioners

The relations of this group to the First Reader and the Directors of The Mother Church may be divided into four separate stages in the order of time, each of which developed something of the attitude of The Mother Church authorities towards those who could not be swerved from their understanding of Truth.

September hearings at Boston

The first of these relations came with the questioning of the practitioners before The Mother Church Directors at Boston, after invitation to enter into a "Conference" with them. What occurred at these September hearings is described in the previous chapter, entitled "Treatment of Sixteen Practitioners by The Mother Church Directors."

The second arose from the dealings of the Directors with the practitioners three months later, through the asking of "Three Test Questions" as set forth in the

"Three Test Questions"
