It is true that to the so-called carnal mind which has no understanding of it, Christian Science may seem to manipulate facts and greatly upset human reason, as stated in the editorial "Original Sin" in the issue of your paper of April 3. No proper opinion of Christian Science, however, can be formed by anyone who has not approached this subject with the spirit of humility, and with the faith and receptivity of "a little child."

The fundamental statements of Christian Science regarding God and man and the universe must be accepted as a basis for thought and action in the same way in which one, as a child, accepted the multiplication table in his study of mathematics, in order that an individual may begin to prove and so know anything of Christian Science. When this approach to Christian Science is made, the truth of Christian Science is demonstrated in individual experience and the gradual revelation of the reality of Spirit and all things spiritual, which Christian Science teaches, is experienced. In this process human reason is reconciled to divine revelation, and instead of experiencing a "manipulation of facts" the divine truth about all things is learned.
