In a recent issue a letter appears containing some criticisms on the report of a lecture on Christian Science given in your paper. Your correspondent asks two definite questions. The first is, "Did not the lecturer rather conceal than explain the difficulties of Eddyism?" Let me say at once that such a term is quite erroneous, and is never used by Christian Scientists. These free public lectures are given in order to explain the practical teachings of Christian Science, which present no difficulties to unprejudiced listeners who are really candid in their search for truth.

The second question is, "If those difficulties are realized, would not people think gravely before embracing so perilous (intellectually) a philosophy?" The effects of Christian Science are not perilous, and the understanding of the subject is not intellectual, and no difficulties whatever are experienced by those people who have experienced the healing and saving power of Mrs. Eddy's teachings by demonstrating the truth for themselves and for others. On page 345 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes, "One who understands Christian Science can heal the sick on the divine Principle of Christian Science, and this practical proof is the only feasible evidence that one does understand this Science."
