In order that your readers may not be misled by the "chat" on Christian Science, which appeared in a recent issue of your paper, will you permit me to point out some of the misconceptions on the subject which "Physician" is evidently laboring under? He says Christian Science lays "particular stress on the dual nature of man, his combination of soul and body." This is a profound mistake, since, on page 338 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy says: "Christian Science, rightly understood, leads to eternal harmony. It brings to light the only living and true God and man as made in His likeness; whereas the opposite belief—that man originates in matter and has beginning and end, that he is both soul and body, both good and evil, both spiritual and material—terminates in discord and mortality, in the error which must be destroyed by Truth."

Again, "Physician" says that "there is nothing true in Christian Science that is not understood and employed by such various branches of psychotherapy as psychoanalysis, autosuggestion, hypnotism, and so on." But Mrs. Eddy, on page 103 of Science and Health, says: "As named in Christian Science, animal magnetism or hypnotism is the specific term for error, or mortal mind. It is the false belief that mind is in matter, and is both evil and good; that evil isas real as good and more powerful. This belief has not one quality of Truth."
