My attention has been called to an adverse comment on Christian Science by an "evangelistic" speaker in your recent issue. Seeing that he also spoke against "half of the Sunday school teachers" in a disrespectful way, I do not suppose that we Christian Scientists need to be concerned as to what he said about us or our religion. Nevertheless, I am always in favor of protesting against public misrepresentations, and, therefore, ask you to print this letter.

The assertion that Christian Science is "a doctrine of evils" is the very reverse of the actual fact. From first to last, this religion emphasizes good. Indeed, Christian Science mentions evil at all only to distinguish it from good and to equip people to help themselves and others to get free from it. In all of Mrs. Eddy's writings, one of the main points is "the supremacy and reality of good, the nothingness and unreality of evil" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 205).

We'd love to hear from you!
