If your correspondent who has "read considerable on the subject" of Christian Science, will consult authentic sources of information, he may ascertain that his notion that Christian Science is deficient in "promises for the future" is altogether mistaken. It is true that Christian Science is regarded by its adherents as a distinct improvement on those forms of religious teaching which offer little or nothing beyond "promises for the future." The difference between Christian Science and such theories is the difference between promise and performance. The Christian Scientist has immediate proofs of the correctness of his religion. He is working scientifically with laws that are fundamental to all reality, and his individual experience satisfies him that the application of these laws will produce results as accurately tomorrow and next year and forever as today.

The mathematician has something better than a promise as to the future of mathematics, and no less is the Christian Scientist assured that man, governed by divine law, has nothing to be afraid of ahead. The reason why this practical religion continually gains ground, while theoretical systems simply stagnate, is readily discerned by any open-minded inquirer.
