Die Herder

Permit me to correct a few of the mistakes appearing in an article on the subject of Christian Science in a recent issue of Die Herder. Mrs. Eddy was at no time secretary to the magnetic Dr. Quimby. Mrs. Eddy's teachings are based on the Bible and the understanding of the power of God. In the Quimby manuscripts recently published, Quimby himself states, "I found that by the power of my own mind I could change the minds of my patients." Again and again in her writings Mrs. Eddy warns her students against the use of the human mind in this manner. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" is not the Bible but the textbook of Christian Science. Mrs. Eddy's writings outweigh the whole output of Bible commentaries in making that grand Book an expression of the living Word, as given out by prophets and teachers.

Students of Mrs. Eddy hold services on Sundays and Wednesdays, as laid down by her. Christian Science does not differ from other branches of the Protestant church in having definite rules and a defined teaching. Naturally the followers of a church follow the teaching and rules of their church. Mrs. Eddy does not differ from the example of Calvin or Wesley in this respect.
