Harrogate (England) Herald

In a recent issue I notice the remarks of Mrs. — on "Occultism," in which he declares that "the occultist differs from the Christian Scientist in that he recognizes the reality and relative permanence of the physical universe." I am glad that the critic has made clear that Christian Science differs entirely from occultism, since anything less like Christian Science than occultism could hardly be imagined.

There is, however, one point I should like to make quite clear, and that is, that Christian Science teaches that "that which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit," and that there is absolutely no connection between real or spiritual being and mortality. Christian Science goes a step farther, and proves by the destruction of sin and sickness that, in proportion as we realize true or spiritual being, God's law, in that proportion do we prove mortality, with its sin and suffering, to be unreal; and these small beginnings are our proof that eventually all sense of material existence will give place to the understanding of true being or reality, just as the belief that two plus two equals five yields to the eternal fact that two plus two equals four.
