Rexhill (England) Observer

My attention has been drawn to a report of a meeting held at Bexhill, under the auspices of the Guild of Health, appearing in a recent issue of your paper. The clergy and doctors gathered together to discuss the question of healing the sick; and it is both interesting and significant to see how thinking persons everywhere are to-day inquiring and searching the Scriptures in order to see what support they may receive from the gospels to justify their pursuing the practice of this indispensable part of Christ's teachings.

Credit was given to Christian Science for having forced this question to the forefront, and for having brought people to see that Christ's religion included the healing of the body as part of the good news he had to give. Nevertheless, the speaker gave it as his opinion that he believed there were great errors in Christian Science and that there were good reasons why people should not become Christian Scientists.

May I be permitted to say, in defense of Christian Science, that it will be found by those who earnestly study the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, that the errors ascribed to its teachings will vanish, and it will be seen that it is the various misrepresentations of the subject which have from time to time been spread broadcast, which mislead the inquirer and present an entirely false view to those unacquainted with the facts. Christian Scientists are endeavoring to follow the commands of Jesus the Way-shower, and they realize that in proportion to their understanding of his life and works are they, too, enabled to heal the sick and triumph over sin.
