In a recent issue you published a sermon under the caption, "When the grave means something more than the end of a fevered life, world thinkers are silent." The name of Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, is numbered among those who offer merely "human philosophy, human knowledge, human help;" and the accusation is made that she offers through her writings no hope of immortality. As regards this subject, Mrs. Eddy was very clear and convincing, setting forth for the instruction of the thousands who read her books the reason for the hope that was in her. In the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," she gives many citations which deal with the subject of eternal life. On page 428 of this book we read: "Life is real, and death is the illusion. A demonstration of the facts of Soul in Jesus' way resolves the dark visions of material sense into harmony and immortality. Man's privilege at this supreme moment is to prove the words of our Master: 'If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.' ... The author has healed hopeless organic disease, and raised the dying to life and health through the understanding of God as the only Life." Such statements speak for themselves.
