An editorial in a recent issue entitled "A Thought Movement," is liable to mislead some of your readers, because it places Christian Science in a class where it does not belong. Christian Science is not occult, and to suggest that Christian Scientists join in the so-called "thought chain" for peace, is to state incorrectly the teaching and practice of Christian Science.

The attitude of Christian Science toward the question of war cannot be more correctly stated than as set forth by its Discoverer and Founder, Mrs. Eddy, in an article written for the Boston Globe in December, 1904, and reprinted in her book "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany": "The Principle of all power is God, and God is Love. Whatever brings into human thought or action an element opposed to Love, is never requisite, never a necessity, and is not sanctioned by the law of God, the law of Love" (p. 278).
