In a recent issue there appeared an excellent letter headed "Modernism and the Church." The writer, however, mentions therein Christian Science in connection with Modernism.

Would you kindly allow me to say that Christian Science does not come under the category of Modernism. It has simply revealed the fact that the power which Jesus wielded through his perfect understanding of God and His laws, enabling him to accomplish so unfailingly those mighty healing works, remains forever to be understood and practiced by his followers, in accordance with his commands: "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."

The Discoverer of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, through the study of the Bible and the promises of Jesus, perceived that it was not only for a few privileged persons nineteen centuries ago that the laws of Christianity operated in the healing of the sick and sinful, but that all who would might learn that the Christ, forever in the Father, is always with men to be understood and acknowledged; that all who behold this eternally true idea of God, this vision of the Christ, of the real, perfect, spiritual man, will be able to heal the sick, and to conquer every ill that flesh is heir to.
