In a dispatch from New York in your issue of recent date, the Christian Science Committee on publication for New York was misquoted as saying that Christian Scientists at the present time accept the inevitability of death. Actually, although no Christian Scientist makes any boast as to what his own experience will be, all Christian Scientists consistently regard everlasting life as an always-existing fact in the reality or truth of man's being. Consequently, every Christian Scientist aims to do his part toward overcoming death for himself and for everybody.

The following is one of Mrs. Eddy's most helpful statements on this subject (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 492): "Being is holiness, harmony, immortality. It is already proved that a knowledge of this, even in small degree, will uplift the physical and moral standard of mortals, will increase longevity, will purify and elevate character. Thus progress will finally destroy all error, and bring immortality to light."
