A recent answer by a critic in the Boston Herald to a question about Christian Science, shows a strange lack of correct information and just appreciation. Christian Scientists make no effort to "suppress unfriendly criticism." We are entirely willing to "let the light play upon" what he prefers to call our "cult." We object to what is false or unfair, and to what does not enlighten or inform, but would obscure or misrepresent.

The attempt of this critic to reduce Christian Science to "the simple truth that mind affects matter" shows an astonishing failure or refusal to be correctly informed. Any fair-minded inquirer can disprove for himself this attempt to belittle Christian Science by reading Mrs. Eddy's principal work, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," or even by attending a few Sunday services in any of our churches. Christian Science is emphatically a religion. It is concerned with disease as with a form of evil from which salvation is needed; and its remedy for disease is its remedy for other forms of evil. This remedy is a practice that is required to be both mental and spiritual, and to be based upon the divine law and the divine Mind.
