Blackburn (England) Times

In the review of certain books in a recent issue, the statement is made that Christian Science "is founded upon theories over which philosophers have quarreled for ages," namely, the theories relating to the "construction of mind and matter and their relation to each other."

That Christian Science is not so founded is clearly stated by Mrs. Eddy on page 269 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," in these words: "I therefore plant myself unreservedly on the teachings of Jesus, of his apostles, of the prophets, and on the testimony of the Science of Mind. Other foundations there are none."

Christian Science is not a theory, but the truth, the truth of which Christ Jesus was a living example, and of which he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." It teaches that matter is a manifestation or concept of the human mind, or the "carnal mind," as St. Paul has it. The adjustment of the human mind to the divine Mind, God, naturally affects the conception of the human mind, named matter, and results in the healings effected by Christian Science. This process of adjustment is Scripturally as being "renewed in the spirit of your mind," and ultimates in the realization of what is even now an absolute fact, namely, the allness of the divine Mind and the consequent nothingness of matter. It is true some philosophers have discerned the mental nature of matter, but none have seen that the human mind itself is a falsity to be "put off," for, as St. Paul says, "the carnal mind is enmity against God."
