From the April 1890 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The pamphlet "Personality the Antichrist" is an untimely birth. It ignores the real problem—destruction of personality through individual progression out of it—and echoes the thought, so current more than a year ago, that "demonstration over personality" means denial of a supposed claim to eminence or authority of some one personality. This thought was fully met at the time by the admirable brochure of Sister Linscott, "What is Personality?" Scientists, generally, have accepted the broader problem and are now too much occupied in bringing out the manifestations of Love, to heed this discordant note. Can the real present trend of scientific thought and life be voiced by one who asks "Were personal leadership set aside by the so-called Christians and Christian Scientists what would be left?" or the thought of Science and Health by a writer who says "To know man as spiritual and in God, is only the first step in the narrow way." In Science and Health (Glossary) we read— "In; a term obsolete in Science . . . Principle is not in its idea; and idea is in the Divine Principle only to come out of it as Mind, or God, expressed."
