God's Creation Real

Cram's Magazine

Boston, Mass., August 20, 1900.

To the Editor :— In your magazine of July, commenting upon Mrs. Whitney's criticism of Christian Science, you made the statement that Christian Science "is absolutely devoid of a single vestige of anything that could honestly pose as Science."

Science, briefly stated, is a demonstrable understanding of that which exists, including cause and effect. Christian Science proposes to give, first, a comprehensive, true definition of God; secondly, a definition of His creation. Then it proposes to measure the things of human comprehension with this exact knowledge of the human comprehension with this exact knowledge of the things of God, and thereby determine between the true and the false. If there is any knowledge which can be properly called scientific it is the understanding of God and His creation, and the relationship between God and His manifestation. The teaching of the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, interprets the Bible to the Christian Scientist; thereby presenting it to him as a scientific work, and the most marvelous and wonderful book in the world. The pupil of Christian Science accepts its theory as true; then by the demonstration of its propositions establishes its truth, so that beyond this point of experience Christian Science is no longer a belief, but has become a demonstrable fact, and is justly entitled to the name "Science" in the highest sense of that term.
