The writer of an article published in your paper attempts to tell what he thinks about Christian Science. He begins by calling it a complicated religion, and goes on to say that "it is not necessary to mix up science nor Eddyism with Christianism." Thousands upon thousands of people, regardless of how extensive has been their education, have during the past fifty years or more been raised from conditions of sorrow, sickness, and sin through the daily study of the Bible and of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. So simple are the teachings of Christian Science that young children are able to help not only themselves but their elders also. This confirms Jesus' statement, "Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."

"Eddyism," as applied to Christian Science, is a term used only by those who do not understand what is really taught by this new-old religion, which is founded on the Bible, and obeys the command of Jesus: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. ... And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; ... they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." These commands, practiced by the early Christians, were lost sight of until Mrs. Eddy, through her discovery, restored them to active operation. In Webster's dictionary may be found definitions of "Christian" and "science," which prove conclusively that Christian Science is essentially all that the name implies. On page 123 of Science and Health Mrs. Eddy writes: "Christian Science differs from material science, but not on that account is it less scientific. On the contrary, Christian Science is pre-eminently scientific, being based on Truth, the Principle of all science."
