In the columns of the Guardian, under the heading "Dearth of Doctors," there was a reference made to Christian Science which would leave the reader with the erroneous impression that the teachings of Christian Science deal merely with the question of therapeutics. On page 150 of Science and Health Mrs. Eddy writes, "The mission of Christian Science now, as in the time of its earlier demonstration, is not primarily one of physical healing;" but the healing of disease through the better understanding of God and His availability in all times of need, is the sign following and the practical evidence of, as Mrs. Eddy further writes, "the Christ-power to take away the sins of the world."

The great Physician gave humanity the only genuine recipe for healing the sick and regenerating the sinner in his promise, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Christian Science is showing its students how to seek first the truth, or man's relationship to his Father-Mother God; and as a natural result, whatever is needed for the restoration of real harmony in the individual human consciousness is added.

The writer states that "faith is faltering and does not always remove mountains." This would necessarily be so, because faith that is faltering is not faith at all, and therefore could not accomplish anything. Our Master said, "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Surely, then, every Christian is expected to believe and accept such a definite statement, and the countless thousands who express their gratitude for practical proofs of healing every Wednesday evening at the meetings of the Christian Science churches and societies throughout the world, show that the healing and saving Christ is indeed with us, "even unto the end of the world."
