In a recent number an article on religion refers to Christian Science in such a way that many might be led to believe that Christian Science involves some unusual religious teaching or belief regarding astronomy and spiritual prophecy. Therefore, please permit me to explain. To the student of Christian Science it is obvious that the author of the article under consideration was not referring to Christian Science as discovered and taught by Mary Baker Eddy. As will be seen from such recognized authorities as Webster's Dictionary and the New International Encylopædia, the term "Christian Science" cannot properly be used to designate any system or religious interpretation except that taught by Mrs. Eddy. Mrs. Eddy did not attach any especial religious importance to astronomy, and her teachings distinctly oppose any theory that man is influenced or governed by the movement or location of the stars. Neither do her teachings warrant a belief that anyone can foretell the future by means of astronomy or mathematical calculations.
