The Eskdale and Liddesdale Advertiser

My attention has been drawn to a reference to Christian Science in an issue of recent date, and with your kind permission I would like to point out that there is not the remotest connection between Christian Science and spiritualism. The whole structure of Christian Science is based on the fact that the infinite Being whom we call God, is Mind or Spirit. Being infinite, all that really exists is the manifestation of the divine Mind—in ideas. Thus there are not many spirits or minds, since there is but one infinite Mind. Christian Science further maintains that God, the infinite Mind, is infinitely good; and the Christian Science movement is engaged in the endeavor to prove that the Principle of good is omnipresent and omnipotent.

Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, in her book "Rudimental Divine Science" (p. 1), defines Christian Science as "the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony." And in the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," in the chapter entitled Christian Science versus Spiritualism, she has stated the attitude of Christian Science toward spiritualism without hesitancy and without ambiguity.
