From the April 1893 issue of The Christian Science Journal

WHAT material ceremony can commemorate the spiritual idea as presented by Jesus? Is there any material symbol by which we can show forth the Lord's death till he come? The use of material bread and wine in this attempt of mortals to partake of the body and blood of Christ is only another effort of mortal mind to interpret all things materially. It is easier for mortals to believe in and adopt some mode of water baptism, than it is to understand and live the Truth and Love taught by Jesus, until they too are immersed in Divine Science, and partake of the nature of the Christ-Principle.
