Our reverend critic loses sight, or else is not aware, of the fact that Christian Science is based fundamentally and absolutely upon the Bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ, who demonstrated by his works his knowledge of the power of divine Principle to destroy sin and pain, and who commanded his followers not only to do likewise, but "greater works than these." Christian Science is essentially a religion, and while many of its adherents have first had their attention drawn to it through the healing of pain and disease, that of its teaching is but incidental to the far more important condition, that of spiritual regeneration, which follows the study of the Bible in the light of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. It is hardly necessary to add that those who have experienced the destruction of sin and discord from their lives are most profoundly grateful.

Christian Science, therefore, becomes a genuine and gratifying means to salvation here and now, and in the degree in which we apprehend the fact that the kingdom of heaven is not a place afar off, but a state of consciousness, a condition of mind, we are released from the bondage of our former beliefs and are freed from our pains and sorrows and fears, and this realization brings with it the joy of true living and the "peace of God, which passeth all understanding."
