In your issue of recent date you refer to the appointment of a vicar and to his attitude towards Christian Science, which he terms "the present-day superstition." This term certainly does not apply to Christian Science understood and demonstrated. Christian Science is the simple teaching of Christ Jesus brought to light again; and this teaching is found, by those who comprehend it, to enable them to obey the commands of Christ Jesus in a way they were not able to obey them before, and to include among other things the healing of the sick. The main purpose of Christian Science, however, is the destruction of sin. This can only be accomplished through a correct understanding of the nature of God, Spirit, and of man in His spiritual image and likeness, and of the unreality of the carnal or mortal mind. With the aid of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and the other writings of Mary Baker Eddy, in connection with the Bible, this understanding is gained, and the result is better, happier, and healthier men and women. If such are its present fruits, when this understanding becomes universal, as it is bound by reason of its very nature to do, the world will be transformed, and harmony reign.
