I am sure that if our reverend critic would study the eighth chapter of Romans and the tenets on page 497 in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," together with the letter already written, he will find a complete answer to his criticism. It is quite true that the above mentioned book, which he says is to him "jumbled jargon," has been read and found full of enlightened teaching by thousands of educated people,—doctors, clergy, lawyers, business men, and the like. Men and women of all classes, including agnostics and atheists, after reading it have become earnest followers of Christ and have accepted the tenets above mentioned, the first one of which reads: "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life." When our critic understands the teachings of Christian Science he will find them Christlike, and will not need to criticize; and since for the present, by his own showing, they are not intelligible to him, he surely is not in a position to criticize, but may only judge of the tree by its fruit. Would not the attitude of Gamaliel be more helpful? To the students of Christian Science Mrs. Eddy's way of emphasizing the great verities of Christianity is so well reasoned and exact in its use of words with their right meanings that it carries its own proof and will not be found to be mistaken. It is that purre logic which can only be taught and learned by the inspiration of love,—the love of God,—the same that Paul speaks of in his epistle to the Galatians as "faith which worketh by love."
