The statements about Christian Science in the article,...
The statements about Christian Science in the article, "The Home of Religious Crazes," in your issue of the 22d ult., are founded upon a most erroneous concept of the basis and teachings of Christian Science. Kindly allow me to state that it is quite untrue that in Christian Science religion is subordinated to concern for physical health, or that it teaches that the ills of the flesh can be cured by the so-called human mind, and death, sin, pain, and illness banished with a wave of a metaphysical wand.
While it is true that the healing of sin and disease through the practice of Christian Science attracts great numbers of people to-day, as in the time of Christ Jesus, yet the purpose of the Christian Science religion is to give the world a correct understanding of God and man's relation to Him, and to teach mankind to worship God aright on the basis of the First Commandment. Healing results from this spiritual understanding.
Christian Science teaches that God is the only Mind, and that every sin, in fact every thought which suggests the existence of anything apart from God and His spiritual universe, including man, must be overcome. Christian Science "rests on the conception of God as the only Life, substance, and intelligence, and excludes the human mind as a spiritual factor in the healing work" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 185).
