Sheffied (England) Telegraph

In your issue of Aug. 10 a correspondent includes Christian Scientists in his condemnation. Christian Scientists would agree with the statement. "I do not say science is all, but I do say that it is the rock without which for foundation no fabric is secure," but we should take issue as to the interpretation of the word "science."

Mrs. Eddy says in her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 3I3), "Jesus of Nazareth was the most scientific man that ever trod the globe. He plunged beneath the material surface of things, and found the spiritual cause." It is upon the same science that Jesus demonstrated that the Christian Scientist builds his fabric. Who will have the temerity to say that this is "the product of insufficient knowledge"? So-called natural science, to which your correspondent refers, is no rock. When Mrs. Eddy stated, forty years ago, that "there is no matter," she was laughed to scorn. These forty years have witnessed the healing of the sick; the lame have walked; the blind see; and the sinners have been cleansed by her rediscovery of the Christ Science, and during these forty years, by stupendous labors, material scientists have groped their way to a faint sense of the truth of this statement. Their sense of it is only theoretical. Mrs. Eddy's understanding of it is demonstrably scientific. Her realization that all is Mind (God, good) has destroyed cancer, consumption, and other diseased conditions.
