Chapter 4 - - Christian Science versus Spiritualism 

 Absurd oracles

How unreasonable is the belief that we are wearing out life and hastening to death, and that at the same time we are communing with immortality! If the departed are in rapport with mortality, or matter, they are not spiritual, but must still be mortal, sinning, suffering, and dying. Then why look to them - even were communication possible - for proofs of immortality, and accept them as oracles? Communications gathered from ignorance are pernicious in tendency.

Spiritualism with its material accompaniments would destroy the supremacy of Spirit. If Spirit pervades all space, it needs no material method for the transmission of messages. Spirit needs no wires nor electricity in order to be omnipresent.
