Burlington Hawk-Eye

It would appear that the writer of the article signed by "Spectator," and printed in your paper on July 7, assumes that Christian Scientists seek to compel others to turn to Christian Science healing, but that assumption is unwarranted and wholly incorrect. Compulsion, which seemed uppermost in "Spectator's" thought, finds no place in Christian Science, which is free to all to accept, but is never forced upon anyone. Christian Scientists would oppose legislation intended to compel the adoption of Christian Science by anyone, quite as much as they would oppose any particular form of healing or religion being imposed upon themselves.

There is no trace of "magic" in Christian Science, but the clarity of Mrs. Eddy's teachings is such that all who honestly and earnestly seek its beneficence can find it. Christian Science appeals to the spiritual aspiration of all who desire betterment in human experience. Through the right understanding of God which Christian Science imparts there is supplied that which satisfies the outreaching thought for the healing and abiding comfort which the Scriptures so freely vouchsafe the honest seeker, and which the Master declared should be found in the lives of his followers.
