There appeared in The Scotsman recently the report of a lecture given by Mr.—on the occasion of the opening of a New Thought convention in Edinburgh. The gentleman's explanations of New Thought call for no comment from me; but, as reported in your columns, he made a statement relative to Christian Science which evidences such a serious misapprehension of the subject that I cannot let it pass uncorrected.
No Christian Scientist, let me say, regards Mrs. Eddy as his healer, now that she has passed from our sight, any more than he so regarded her when she was with us in the flesh. The Christian Scientist understands God, Spirit, divine Mind, to be the only healer and savior of man, acting through an ever operative divine law, the law which St. Paul describes as "the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus," which, he asserts, has freed him "from the law of sin and death." When apparently on the brink of death, Mrs. Eddy was herself healed by a spontaneous recognition of this divine law, and thereafter it became her life-work to show others how to gain the same understanding of this spiritual power, that they might come under its beneficent operation as she had done. It is for this that Christian Scientists all over the world are grateful to her.
